Little Graves / XSmashcasters / 40 Boys

  • IX Art Park - Indoors 522 2nd Street Southeast Charlottesville, VA, 22902 United States (map)

Little Graves is an intense power trio that juxtaposes influences from punk, post-punk, grunge, prog rock, psychedelia, and noise with musique concrete, samples, and field recordings. The members of Little Graves hail from up and down the east coast and cut their teeth in the NY and Providence music scenes. Little Graves taps into the raw subconscious by simultaneously drawing upon and eschewing tradition and narrative so that each listener may create their own unique meaning. Through exploration of the dissonance between the engineered and the natural, Little Graves strives to reflect the surreal beauty of the living experience. Mostly, Little Graves is three guys who live to make noise.

XSmashcasters – Born in 2016 out of the remains of The Smashcasters, XSmashcasters are a Charlottesville/Richmond, Virginia, USA band whose style encompasses 1970s NY and English-style Punk, Street Punk, Mod, Power Pop, Proto Punk, Bootboy Glam, Oi!, New Wave and Rock & Roll. The group features former members of 1990s RVA and CH’VILLE Punk and Gothic Rock stalwarts The Halfways, The Counselors & In Tenebris.

The 40 Boys – Longtime Charlottesville punk rockers The 40 Boys bring the party back with their sloshingly-awesome live show. This guitar and drum duo fronted by Tony Lechmanski (of Bella Morte, The Secret Storm) will rock you down to the floor and have you knocking bottles back.
