#TySegall

State Street Pub presents
Ty Segall
Creeping Pink
Raw Image

8:00p / doors 7:30p  |  $12 advance / $15 at the door


Lo-fi musician Ty Segall
first garnered public acclaim as the lead singer of Orange County, California garage rock revivalists the Epsilons.  With that band, he practiced a rawer, snottier take on Strokes/Vines/White Stripes-style rock, occasionally delving into more retro territory.  On his solo album Lemons, however, Segall delivered a much more traditional sound, studiously re-creating '60s guitar tones and drenching his tracks in old-school reverb.  The stomping results bore a striking resemblance to early garage masters such as the Sonics and the Standells, as well as proto-punks the Stooges and bedroom folk antecedent Alexander "Skip" Spence.  He returned in 2010 with Melted.  The year 2011 was busy for him, with two albums -- Live in Aisle Five and Goodbye Bread -- scheduled for release, as well as an EP of T. Rex covers, Ty-Rex. Goodbye Bread marked a turn toward Segall's softer side, evoking a John Lennon-like take on quieter and more introspective singer/songwriter fare.  In 2012, Segall collaborated with Strange Boys' offshoot White Fence on Hair.  This mini-album married Segall's Beatles-soaked pop hooks and production with White Fence's Syd Barrett- influenced, acid-damaged garage sounds.  Two more Segall albums followed that year, including June's Slaughterhouse with the Ty Segall Band on In the Red, and Twins, the completely solo follow-up to Goodbye Bread released on Drag City in October.

Reverse Shark AttackSegall's profile grew, and 2013 began with several reissues of previous projects, including a 2009 collaboration with Mikal Cronin entitled Reverse Shark Tank, as well as his earlier garage trio the Traditional Fools' out of print 2008 debut.  In 2013, Segall also released the debut album from his side project Fuzz, in which he played drums rather than guitar.  Also in 2013, he showed off a new approach, recording a departure from the usual titled Sleeper, for which all the songs were acoustic ballads.  Not one to rest on his laurels, Segall returned to the studio to record the 17-track follow-up Manipulator in 2014, released by Drag City in August.  A live concert by the Ty Segall Band at the San Francisco club the Rickshaw Stop was released in February 2015 as part of the Live in San Francisco album series from Castle Face Records; the label is co-owned by John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees, who also engineered the location audio for the Segall show.  Another live recording of Segall and his band, preserving his set at the 2013 Pickathon Festival, was released in May 2015 as a split album with the garage/psych act King Tuff, also taped at the same event.  2015 also saw the arrival of the second Fuzz album, and an expanded reissue of the Ty-Rex EP.

#DressUp

Transylvanian Lip Treatment presents
Midnight Picture Show
US 1975 | digital | Dir: Jim Sharman | 100min | R

Midnight / doors 11:00p  |  $7 at the door
17+ unless accompanying parent or adult guardian

This campy cult classic (which unfortunately, we can't name here, but you can watch the trailer over there) is the most popular midnight movie of all time.  A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite.  The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie.

You are not allowed to bring your own props.  Prop kits are available at the show.  Prop kits include rice (during the wedding scene at the very beginning, throw yours in celebration), a newspaper (during the rain scene, keep dry), noise maker (during the creation speech, celebrate and MAKE SOME NOISE), toilet paper (when the doctor breaks through the lab wall, hurl your "scotts" tissue), and toast (make your toast during the birthday dinner...toss it), will be available at the show for $4.  YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME IN COSTUME.

Doors open at 11:00pm.  Virgin sacrifice before the show.  The movie begins at Midnight.
