Man Forever, Buffalo Princess, Monomath And White Greg Play At Sluggo's June 26

Monday, June 16, 2014

Man Forever, Buffalo Princess, Monomath and White Gregg will play at Sluggo's North, 501 Cherokee Blvd., on Thursday, June 26, 10 p.m.  Tickets are $7 at the door. 


Man Forever is an exploratory percussion project helmed by John Colpitts (a.k.a. Kid Millions), one of New York’s most versatile and critically lauded collaborators and a founding member of Oneida. Since its inception in 2010, Man Forever has hosted an impressive list of guest performers, and its 2014 album Ryonen features the U.S.’s premiere percussion ensemble So Percussion, creating music that is rhythmically seductive and instantly exciting while retaining the experimental legacy that Man Forever has cultivated.

The Chattanooga sax/guitar/bass/drums quartet Buffalo Princess performs what they call “ambient thrash metal,” confounding expectations with a potent, earth-shaking combination of twisted electric jazz and hard rock, with influences as diverse as Black Sabbath, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Sun Ra and Joni Mitchell. 

Monomath is a 3-piece Chattanooga outfit delivering a blend of syncopation, lyrical phrasings and polyrhythmic hustle. Mad scientist and guitarist/vocalist Gabe Barrett employs a variety of effects and looping pedals to slice open another dimension in sound, with hints of prog, math, post-hardcore and jazz. Fueled by the powerful, melodic bass lines of Brian Hennen and driven by the lush yet frenzied beats of Chris Lanza’s drums, Monomath is an uncontainable experiment.

White Gregg is Knoxville’s underground supergroup, featuring Jason Boardman and Eric Lee from Dark Logik and Double Muslims, Damion Huntoon and Tyler Mucklow from Woman, and vocalist Maggie Brannon of Daddy Don’t, Dirty Knees and Divorce. Brannon’s tense vocals fight with the outfit’s raucous sonic concoction with influences including Captain Beefheart, post-punk and no-wave music.
