Screen Door Records Showcase feat. Echo Group, Joy Of Painting, Self Help, The Dead Towns, Secret Shopper & Go-Out Shoes 

When: Fri., Aug. 31, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $5
“FUCK AUTO-TUNE. FUCK SOUND REPLACER. FUCK ‘TRADITIONAL’ STUDIOS.” J. Kirkland of local indie studio Screen Door Records doesn’t mince words. He’s spent some time on Music Row serving as an assistant engineer on releases by, as he puts it on Screen Door’s website, “big-time pop-country artists.” But that seemingly wasn’t his speed. Tonight and tomorrow, Screen Door will host a showcase featuring many of the local artists Kirkland has worked and/or palled around with, including but not limited to: The Joy of Painting, who make a busy, fun but lyrically wry garage-pop and have recently been known to cover Elvis Costello’s “Pump It Up”; our new local faves Echo Group, who also do the smart, dense, garage-pop thing, but with surfier guitar tones; and The Dead Towns, who — judging from the handful of songs on their Facebook page — explore glammy and post-punky arrangements with a keen ear for melody. In all, 10 Screen Door-affiliated acts will perform.
