Charlie Don't Surf - Live w/
Helliphant, The Hat Party, & more

Thursday May 3 2007



Tonight Inferno and WORT 89.9FM present CHARLIE DON'T SURF - LIVE. The music begins promptly when the bar opens at 9PM with an hour long DJ mix from JAKE SHUT, host of long running WORT radio show Charlie Donít Surf, featuring his trademark uptempo and underground mix of punk, indie rock, garage, metal, hardcore, stoner, hip hop, Americana, no wave and various obscure blasts from the past. The DJing is interrupted throughout the night for LIVE PERFORMANCES from three regional acts, handpicked by Jake Shut, who play their sets after 10PM. Tonight features: HELLIPHANT [Madison, WI] Madison supergroup featuring past members of Way Off the Horse, The Skintones, echo-static, Uncle Eddie, Plastic and others. Heavy catchy hard rock reminiscent of Faith No Moreís more metal excursions with tasty keyboard work. THE HAT PARTY [indie / Madison, WI] New wave keyboard ambience and post punk guitars combine to make a delightfully and surprisingly poppy result. Guitars crashing, bass bouncing, drums cracking, singers singing/shrieking and keyboard melody filling the gaps. Songs for a lost era. New-wavey keyboard ambiance clashes with dissonant post-punk guitars, driving basslines duke it out with frantic drums. Familiar elements in an unfamiliar mix - or pop as it should have been. Stripped down, stark naked post-punk anthems versus lush (noisy?) cinematic soundscapes. Sometimes brutal, sometimes beautiful, always memorable.
