Marine Corpse, Community Currency, and Lobo Marino
7pm Monday the 23rd of August
Extend your Best Friends Day weekend with some sober fun!

How can a metal band play an acoustic set?? This is how:
cardboard box drums, acoustic guitar, unmiced screams

Marine Corpse, on their summer Grinding Against Jesus 2k10 tour will be gracing the Wingnut with their presence and awesome tunes.
Local band Lobo Marino and TBA to also play!
Lobo Marino is folk/indie music from Richmond that includes accordian!
A “lobo marino” is Spanish for “sea wolf”. The creature is called in English a “sea lion”, though they do seem more like canines than felines.

Jameson and Laney spent a year traveling in South America and this album, “Keep your head up”, is what they have to show for it. Nathaniel joins them on banjo, trumpet, and minimal percussion. This album is a journey.

Listen below! (more…)

Come to the Wingnut for an awesome house show on the 24th!!!

Dirty Fist! is banjo/accordion/fiddle all grrl two-piece touring from Gainesville, touring with the Damsels, a lady bluegrass duet from Olympia!

…Dirty Fist! consists of two really rad ladies from Gainesville, FL and they play warble-y American gypsy music on accordion, banjo, and violin. They tend to write about inter-personal relationships and are a great band to see live/hang out with!

The Wingnut is a sober space – absolutely no drugs or alcohol allowed on you or in you!

Even though yesterday was a super long day that started out really poorly, with Jeremy having a gun in his face and getting robbed, we managed to pull off an amazingly nice end to the day.
While we were waiting for the show to start, Kayla Dean got the neighborhood kids excited about capture the flag. She grabbed some flags (red and black, duh). We went to the vacant lot across the street and played a bunch of rounds of capture the flag with about 12 kids. They were silly and we were silly. It was awesome and we are looking forward to more games with the kids.
After we all ran around for a bit, we were on the front porch waiting for bands to tune up, when one kid ran up and told us he was worried the cops were going to harrass us. We were confused and said, no the cops aren’t harrassing us. Then he managed to spit out that he was worried about the cops harrassing us because they were harrassing someone down the street. Copwatch is a lot easier with smart kids around. So we hightailed it down Barton to make sure the cops didn’t rough up someone they were arresting.
Then it was show time! Some of our great friends had come over, but the crowd was small. I believe the general consensus among Wingnuts was, Their Loss! Cause all the bands were freaking AMAZING. Stefan Fink went on first, then Wood Spider, and then The Armadillos. They were all such amazing musicians! We were smiling and singing along late into the night. All the performers were extremely animated and entertaining. They also had some awesome art, zines, and home screened patches for sale.
It was a really good fucking night. The Wingnut is extremely grateful for our supportive neighbors and our supportive new friends from out of town. If you missed it, sorry, but we are here for the long haul, so check us out some other time.

If you missed the bluegrass ad folk fun before, we have some of the same bands, plus some new playing at the Wingnut.
Good for dancing, with fiddle, banjo, accordian, guitar, washtub bass, washboard and MORE!!!

7pm, please bring donations for the band or money to buy their cds!!

Coaltown Noir
Zach Orion (of Casa de Chihuahua)

Sober, All Ages, Please be respectful of the Wingnut and our neighbors

“grex started out as a single celled amoeba, drifting about in puddles and devouring life forms smaller than itself. One day, after receiving an electro-magnetic signal, many of these amoeba coagulated into a multi-cellular photo-synthetic slug. After a period of fruitful metabolism, the grex-slug exploded into spores of millions more amoebas, which infected the intestines of commerce, causing hilarious farts and embarrassing diarrhea.”
