+ It Looks Sad.
It Looks Sad. originally began playing shows in early 2012 under the name It Looks Sad, That's Why I Said It's You. After a few line-up shifts the band emerged in late 2013 under the shortened name, It Looks Sad. In the Winter of 2013 the band recorded a handful of shimmering, sharp guitar pop / post-punk songs that echo the influence of bands like Surfer Blood and Beach Fossils. Along with the shortened moniker, It Looks Sad. professes a leaner, more straight-forward approach with their new material. The band's live show is also something to behold as their songs are given a bit more power and room to breathe. Hometown label, Tiny Engines, will release the band's proper Self-Titled debut in the Summer of 2014.
This is our 2nd annual fundraiser for IRAQ VETERANS AGAINST THE WAR. Please bring money to donate; it goes to support the actions of activist veterans in telling their stories, engaging in anti-war protests, and supporting social justice causes all over the country.
Why, after sixteen years, do our soldiers continue serving in Afghanistan and Iraq with no end in sight?
Why do our representatives in congress and the senate continue to approve unilateral war making powers to the executive branch?
Why, when our military expenses are over half of our national budget, and our military budget is larger than the next ten countries combined (by a large margin), do our representatives continue to increase it?
Why, in a country that always claims to support their troops, are our veterans far too often left without the resources they need after serving in our nation's wars?
Why are we so quick as citizens to claim support for our veterans, but often let their stories, voices, and conviction fall on deaf ears?
Where is the voice for peace, both in congress and in the streets, to protect veterans, future veterans, and the civilians caught in the crossfire in unnecessary wars?
Join us as we speak to these issues and present some incredible talent from the SW Michigan community, including:
MAGGIE MAY (Folk-Punk)
CHIT HOLDEMS (Anti-Fascist Country)
SISTA MISTA (Sci-Fi Political Hip-Hop)

From the ashes of DS9
Comes thrills and chills sure to combine
Into a ghoulish scene straight from your dreams
Musical performances that shall make you scream
EVIL DEAUXERZ brings that ROCK AND ROLL
that will shake the core of your mortal soul
A rare house engagement and one can tell
They'll bring fun and raucous from the pits of hell
NO SKULL from Lansing comes yonder here
The PUNK of forty thousand years
SLUDGEY riffs emanating from these ghouls
If you miss it you'd be a fool
NEKOMATA shall seal your DOOM
As their METAL envelops the room
The fog rolls in and brings you terror
Miss this and you'd be in error
And grisly ghouls emerge from their tomb...
Distort reality as they play the room...
And though you fight to stay alive...
Your body starts to shiver...
For all mere mortals shall become quite befuddled...
