GRACEFULLY @ Zebulon 4/21/09


Dear Friends,
Tuesday, April 21st, Goodbye Better is putting on a very special FREE show @ Zebulon in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and we’d be honored if you’d join us for what will no doubt be a classic of the period, a drunken jamboree, and a thrilla in Zebulon-illa.

This little party/show is also to celebrate the release of the first Gracefully cd, out on Goodbye Better that very night. 500 copy limited edition new ten song full-length self-titled cd from Ben, Lee, Padden, Veronika, Khaya, & Victor.

I Feel Tractor (in full on 4-piece band mode)
Yesterdays News (all 5 original Lumipad members reformed)
as well as DJ Merc (de Ifwhen) throwing down original psychedelic jungle excursions b/w sets (perfect club music for those who see the world in swirls).
For full artist descriptions please scroll down.

I Feel Tractor - If you threw Woody Guthrie's guitar, a Royal Trux ep, a few pages of a Paul Celan book, and a few socio-political traumas into a boiling cauldren, you might just end up with Once I had an Earthquake, the first full-length collection of I Feel Tractor's space folk musings.

Gracefully - An ambient rock band from NYC, Gracefully is the phoenix rising out of the ashes of the Brooklyn band So L'il.

Below is the track listing for their new self-titled full-length cd. Side one brings the rock, Side two the ambience.

The Underground Sundae
Spank Me Slowly
Inside Trois - featuring Honeychild Coleman
Bang Bang
The Ex-Prisoner
Fell On Us
Dear Whipping Boy,
Follow That Bliss

Yesterday's News - all five original members of Lumipad have gotten back together to form Yesterday's News, something like sailing in the dark and dreaming about nothing in particular, like Nyquil on redbull. Lumipad was one of the best and most original bands this city has ever seen, and it is beyond a pleasure to have them back together this night.

DJ Merc (de Ifwhen) - From an article I wrote about them in Cock-Now and Perfect Sound Forever "Ifwhen, the very name itself implying what's coming next, seeks to shatter that ordinariness, shatter what makes you feel comfortable. Headfuck you, to put it bluntly. This is not a bad thing. In fact, it's as fresh as fresh can be because it makes you see the world through new eyes."

Tonight Merc will be presenting his new solo psychedelic jungle excursions b/w sets, perfect club music for those who see the world in swirls.
