Dont forget to give us a like on Facebook and Twitter as well! We are new and need your likes and support! We will return the favor and follow back! Thanks people you rock! Last Ones Left     We are a band that strives to make a difference We don't want to be everyone else and it shows in our music Last Ones Left has been together for 4 years and has been spreading the name around ever since We make sure to make our live shows just as entertaining as our music And whatever problems that come in our way we are ready to take it on full force This band from Houston, Texas has nailed the lost art of 90's alternative rock and sprinkled it with a littler flavor of classic rock Ricky Dee brings brings out a noisy tone from his guitar and sings in a mixture of their influences Noe Kimes has excellent fills pouring out of his bass which many bassists don't succeed in Antwon Thrash brings a thrash approach to his drums and he is good at it On their Soundcloud account there's a drum solo entitled "Drunk Zolo" Listen to it to understand how destructive the drummer really is "Brief Conclusions" has a strong "Velvet Underground" influence especially in the laid back vocal melody sung in the style of Lou Reed "Wake Up" is a noisy Mudhoney inspired jam The song is layered completely with a loud fuzzy bass "Kocaine" starts with a subtle bass line and then it's thrown into a fast current of a wild river There's a solo that might melt your ears "That Day Long" is a really catchy 80's punk rock like gem The vocals are sung in a "Hendrix" manner The bassist really shines on this track "Downer" has found a way to pay tribute to their influence and make original music at the same time They don't fall pray into sounding like a copycat band If you feel nostalgic of the rock music of the 90's this is the band to check out The Musical Junkie "Downer"     It is called "Downer" with quotations because life appears to be one big downer, a big drag, a losing game at times, but then again life is like a quote And you interpret it how you want, you define your own "truth"

    Rice Visual and Dramatic Arts presents, CALLING PLANET EARTH: The Graphic Cosmos of Sun Ra and El Saturn Records For the opening, there will be a performance by Loose Assembly from 7-10 pm The exhibition features unassembled working materials for these and other LPs, as well as Ra’s two books of poetry These include the original, un-folded, un-cut pages for Ra’s first collection, The Immeasurable Equation, together with the beautiful un-folded cover prints To mark the end of the centenary year of bandleader, pianist, composer, mystic, and extraterrestrial Sun Ra (b 1914, Birmingham, Alabama; d 1993, Birmingham), Calling Planet Earth: The Graphic Cosmos of Sun Ra and El Saturn Records presents an in-depth survey of the graphic materials that he and his El Saturn label produced from the 1950s to the 1970s Long recognized as one of the great jazz pioneers of the 20th century and a progenitor of Afro-Futurism, Sun Ra’s importance to the broader artistic world has risen exponentially in the last decade, as young artists and musicians have discovered and taken inspiration from his work Founded in 1956 by Ra and his manager Alton Abraham, El Saturn was one of the first artist-run labels in the world, alongside Charles Mingus and Max Roach’s Debut and Harry Partch’s Gate 5 Based in Chicago, where Abraham deployed a small crew of semi-professional designers and a grass-roots community of local print shops, pressing plants, and suppliers, El Saturn and its publishing wing Ihnfinity Incorporated produced singles, LPs, and a couple of books, most of which were focused on Ra’s music, poetry, and philosophy Many of these were assembled – some even printed – in Abraham’s basement, a DIY effort presaging punk by 20 years A visionary thinker with an intergalactic outlook, an apocalyptic message, and a messianic game plan, Ra spread word that the world was in peril, that its inhabitants were acting irresponsibly, and that only through the arts – especially music, his music – could humanity be saved The primary vehicle for the dissemination of Ra’s haunting missive was his band the Arkestra, a multiform big-band established after the era of big-bands had ended Although he was utterly serious, Ra did not deliver this dire news without a sense of humor The graphics of many of the early albums feature a wild amalgam of tiki lounge and rocket-ship imagery, modernist abstraction, classic ‘50s jazz iconography, a rubbery surrealist sense of perspective, Afrocentric motifs, and end-of-the-world fantasy-scapes Calling Planet Earth brings together outstanding examples of these designs, many of them created by a mysterious figure named Clyde Dangerfield, a few drawn and laid out by Ra himself The sleeves for When Sun Comes Out, Sun Ra Visits Planet Earth, Interstellar Low-Ways, Discipline 27-II, Super-Sonic Jazz, Night of the Purple Moon, and My Brother the Wind incorporate Ra’s poems and proclamations into each package The exhibition features unassembled working materials for these and other LPs, as well as Ra’s two books of poetry These include the original, un-folded, un-cut pages for Ra’s first collection, The Immeasurable Equation, together with the beautiful un-folded cover prints Drawing on an extraordinary cache of materials uncovered after Abraham’s death, curators John Corbett and Terri Kapsalis explore the playful and profound parallel universe – or omniverse, as Ra preferred to call it – invented and made visible by Sun Ra and his El Saturn imprint In addition to the exhibition, Corbett and Kapsalis will give an informal presentation on October 3rd at 12:00 noon about their ongoing investigation of Ra’s music and thought, comparing notes on encounters with Ra, fifteen years working with the Abraham material, and the establishment of two El Saturn archives in Chicago During the exhibition opening, on October 2nd, a concert by the brilliant Chicago-based ensemble Loose Assembly, led by drummer Mike Reed, brings live music to the occasion, featuring alto saxophonist Greg Ward, cellist Tomeka Reid, vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz, and bassist Joshua Abrams
