From C-Haus Manager Steve Olivieri:
Wednesday (Nov. 7)
Golden Donna opens up at 10 p.m. with some ambient electro-synth to tickle your toes into dancing. Then Trin Tran takes over with a one-man approach to noise rock, using his hands and feet in unison playing a plethora of instruments. Kisser closes out the night with enough fizzling distortion that you’ll see spots.
Thursday (Nov. 8)
Presenting the genre in its truest form, old-time-cut-ups the Rock River Rounders will take the stage at 10 p.m. to perform some traditional old-time music with fiddle, banjo, button accordion, and guitar.
Friday (Nov. 9)
Come hear the most unpolished, angst-driven, literary ‘masterpieces’ from Beloit students' high school careers, read aloud by their authors. Poetry, short stories, essays, journal entries, songs--it could be anything at Sh*t Lit!, taking place at 9 p.m. Starting at 10 p.m., check out Johnny Lowebow and Purgatory Hill, who have turned modern blues and rock upside down with the addition of an old-styled cigar-box guitar. The instrument has gained momentum lately and these two acts have kept at the forefront. Sandwiched in the middle are Jerry Fels & the Jerry Fels. These acoustic rockers shed their angst and political irritations in a punk-turned-folk approach.
Saturday (Nov. 10)
Openers Wook (10 p.m.) draw on influences from many genres, mixing jam, progressive rock, singer songwriter roots, and electronic instrumentation. Acoustic folk-rock group An Evening With Your Mother hails from Champaign, Ill., but you’ll recognize a familiar Beloit face. Armed with a healthy dose of material, their high energy will keep us going through the night.
