Saturday June 26,2022Doors at 7:00 PM / Show 8:00 PM $15 Adv / $17 DOS +2 at the door if under 21All Ages \The Grievance Club...Joymaykr isnt all fast-paced hooks and high-minded aspirations; in between calls for worker solidarity and anthemic lines that already feel like a crowd is screaming them back at the band, The Grievance Club work in uniquely poppy takes on ship-capsizing mosh riffs in the climax of penultimate track Sweepstakes, dizzy-sick shoegaze influences on Juniper, reserved-yet-intricate twinkly guitar work on Sealegs, and even a memorably haunting exploration of making misfortune divine on acoustic interlude Two Bells. Joymaykr is the kind of eclectic, confident LP that, for most bands, would be two or three albums removed from their debut, but thats the kind of shake-up that The Grievance Club was founded upon. As Mills states, ever since the bands founding nearly a decade ago, Its been a constant process of recalibrating our perception of ourselves. Joymaykr sees The Grievance Club squaring their self-image with their aspirations and making a record that can connect with people from all walks of life who identify with The Grievance Clubs efforts in our personal lives and in our art to close the gap between who we are and who we aim to be.- written by Ellie KovachTeamonadeWe are teamonade!!! We are a band inspired by the classic taste of a good ol half & half beverageCurtail Ask the members of Curtail to describe their soundwhich, as any band will tell you, is a tough taskand theyll go abstract (If Sheryl Crow wrote songs for Archers of Loaf) and ambitious. Its modernized 90s alternative, says bass guitarist Dan Corby. Its hope in tough times. It sounds big like it can fill a stadium.Although these sentiments might seem like hyperbole, theres an element of truth within all of themas evidenced by the Akron, Ohio, bands well-crafted debut, All Your Luck (Skeletal Lightning, May 25). Recorded and produced by guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Ben Hendricks in his Akron home studioand mixed and mastered by Tim Gerak (Six Parts Seven) in Denver at his Mammoth Cave Studiosthe record contains plenty of 90s touchstones: distortion-ashed guitars, tightly wound hooks and intricate rhythms.Built to Spill, mellower The Dismemberment Plan and early Promise Ring are certainly sonic touchstones. But what separates All Your Luck from other releases is Curtails songwriting vision and commitment to digging beyond superficial 90s rock signifiers. Above all, All Your Luck exudes possibilitythe sense that even if life might be challenging right now, something bigger and better might be just around the corner. -Annie Zaleski
