Druids - http://druidsiowa.com/

Formed in 2008, Druids set out to make heavy music. Influenced by metal behemoths such as Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Mastodon while embracing progress, letting the music do the talking. Since humble beginnings as a drum and bass 2-piece, they've since transformed into a trio, creating a wall of heavy riffage and beauty. Druids has released two albums, 'Pray For Water' (2009) and 'The Sound of Meditation' (2013), and have expanded their sound with each documented step. Now 8 years later, Druids is still working to broaden their take on the horizons of metal. They continue delivering what can only be described as an intense and powerful live show. The band is to release their third full length, 'Cycles of Mobeum' June 3rd, 2016.

Colleen Green w/ Karen Meat: Official 80/35 After Party at Vaudeville Mews

13501598_10154246950713794_6855036888486444603_n.jpg

Official 80/35 After Party
featuring...
Colleen Green
& Karen Meat
FREE
10:30 doors/11pm show. 21+

This latest collection of songs follows a newly 30-year-old Green as she carefully navigates a minefield of emotion. Her firm belief in true love is challenged by the inner turmoil caused by entering modern adulthood, but that doesn't mean that her faith is defeated. With a nod to her heroes, sentimental SoCal punks The Descendents, Green too wonders what it will be like when she gets old. Throughout songs such as "Some People," "Deeper Than Love," and the illustrative title track, the listener has no choice but to feel the sympathetic growing pains of revelatory maturation and the anxieties that come along with it.

$8.00
5:00 p.m.

CASTLE: Castle was forged in San Francisco in 2009 and released their debut full-length, In Witch Order, on Germany’s Ván Records in 2011. The album brought light to the newly-formed band and earned them “Album Of The Year” honors from Metal Hammer Norway, as well as Roadburn Festival’s “Newcomer Of The Year.” Shortly thereafter, the band joined the Prosthetic Records roster in North America and released their critically-adored sophomore album Blacklands. The record left to a Canadian JUNO nomination for “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year.” CASTLE performed over two-hundred shows worldwide in support of the release alongside the likes of The Sword, Conan, Intronaut and Pentagram among many others as well as appearances at some of the underground’s largest fests including Roadburn and the London and Berlin Desertfests.

American Scarecrows / Left is West

We spend so much time dissecting music and pondering what the point in making it is that we sometimes forget that people merely create music because it brings them joy. That’s the most surprisingly pleasant thing about the Minneapolis folk rock band American Scarecrows; they do what they love without having to put any other labels on it. The trio has packed all their years of experience into music that tells a story of love, loss, and growth.

$7, All ages
DOORS 9PM / 9:30PM

Left is West is a rock band from Des Moines! The band has released two records: ‘Souvenirs from Past Lives’ and ‘Between the Record Sleeves’.

Druids//Skin of Earth//Obsidian Sword//Closet Witch at The Record Mill

1929820_957805817644289_1775667105959290246_n.jpg

Four of the heaviest, rawest and bestest bands in Iowa converge in Ames for one night only! Clear your calenders! Ask for work off! You do not want to miss this show!

Stay tuned for more details as this date approaches

DRUIDS (Des Moines): Sludgey doom with riffs for days. Druids should need no introduction but if you've never heard or seen them, you are in for a treat. This will be the last show of their spring tour, so come out in support of these central-Iowa stalwarts. For fans of: Mastodon, Baroness, Torche, Black Sabbath, Sleep

http://druidsiowa.bandcamp.com/

SKIN OF EARTH (Des Moines): Insturmental and introspective rock. Effortlessly defiant of nearly all genre classifications, Skin of Earth has been cutting eardrums with a smile for longer than you'd think. Pitchfork did not review Skin of Earth's December 2015 S/T LP, but if they did, it surely would have garnered a perfect 10. For fans of: Loud music.

https://sumppumprecords.bandcamp.com/album/skin-of-earth

OBSIDIAN SWORD (Cedar Falls): Maybe actually the heaviest band in Iowa right now. Sound personelle hate them personnel hate them. Oliver wants to tell you about Bernie Sanders. Obsidian Sword is doom metal at its most crushing. For fans of: Bongzilla, Aseethe, Sunn O))), and amplifiers. 

http://obsidiansword.bandcamp.com/

CLOSET WITCH (Quad Cities): Grindcore/powerviolence with brief moments of shoegazing. Closet Witch's live act is equal parts serenity and intensity. Everything is hardcore out East. Simply put, Closet Witch is the best Iowan band you haven't heard yet. I personally cosign this band as the bees knees. For fans of: Converge, Purge, Weekend Nachoes, Magrudergrind.

https://closetwitch.bandcamp.com/

Doors: 6:00 PM
Show: 6:30 PM
