Saturday featured legends and legendary performances, though usually not at the same time. Johnny Jewel gets best performance of the day with double duty killer jams from Chromatics and a manic dance party with Glass Candy. MIA eludes me. I just don’t get it, but okay, the kids like to here abbreviated beats up and down. Ice-T let Bushwick Bill freestyle. Deerhunter had the most epic sound check ever, reconstructing “Marquee Moon” to test the levels.
This giant photo post features Frank Smith (kinda), Ola Podrida, Bleached, The Impossibles, White Lung, Chromatics, Geographer, Glass Candy, Television, Tycho, Deerhunter, MIA, Ice-T and The Descendants. Click through…
Just in time for your ACL afterparty…
Johnny Jewel, best known as part of Chromatics and half of Glass Candy has remastered and offered for download an hour and seventeen minute long mix from five years ago called “After Dark” (“After Dark 2” is forthcoming). Previously a merch table extra, it features tracks from all flavors of collaborations and label projects from Mr. Jewel including aforementioned Glass Candy and Chromatics as well as Mirage, Professor Genius and Farah.

Back in the friendly confines where All Are Welcome, Friday night’s program featured local up and comers, a band strengthening their reputation and a duo throwing a full on dance party. The end of the night I walked away spent because it was ninety-something at show time and a sold out sweaty mob.
Orthy took the early crowd over, Chromatics were amazing and Glass Candy, well you are going to have to click through to get the details. …and plenty of pics.

Do you have a plans on Friday? No? Good. We have Glass Candy with Chromatics heading to town to play The Mohawk.
Sharp-eyed readers with a memory may recognize Glass Candy from an IT Dept. post and fans of the internet buzz will know Chromatics for their recent cover of Neil Young‘s “Into The Black”, a song in heavy rotation at Sirius XMU.
The bands had the good sense to ask ATH-local-to-watch band Orthy to open up. Flying Turns will sling vinyl to keep you dancing.

Download: Chromatics – Kill For Love [MP3]
This edition will bring you a nice little variety. I have an older track from Glass Candy that I’ll use to highlight one the best movies I have seen in a while. I have a track from Superhumanoids that is short and sweet. An old-school feeling trance track from Acid Washed that is new, I promise. Loose Fit busts out some funky bassline action for a genre I like to call “theme music”. I’ll finish up with a stellar track from Dana Buoy you can download. Dana Buoy is in Akron/Family, this isn’t an Akron/Family track.
Head past the break…
