MakeSB, in conjunction with KCSB and CISM (UCSB’s Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Music), is proud to welcome Old Time Relijun to the Central Library Thursday, November 1st at 7:00 PM. Old Time Relijun will be playing in celebration of their 23-year anniversary as a band and will be joined by local bands VNLVX from Ventura, and Internet based out of Santa Barbara.
Old Time Relijun is a band whose sound defies easy description; while a lot of their music has foundational aspects rooted in traditional blues as well as classic rock distortion and feedback, the band’s heavy experimentation - both instrumentally as well as with the tempo and timbre of their sound – create a lush and varied soundscape that is both danceable and intellectually stimulating. Signed to K Records during the 90s as the record label was making history in the Pacific Northwest independent scene, these first shows in over 10 years for the band are a great time to witness first-hand the intersection of mystery and pure avant-garde expressionism that is Old Time Relijun.
Support for Old Time Relijun is provided by Ventura band VNLVX and Internet from Santa Barbara. Both bands take traditional punk and post-punk riffs – VNLVX more the former, and Internet more of the latter - and add modern flourishes to create a sound that is both classically familiar in how they sound, yet very modern in lyrical content and expression. The result: truly timeless music that is not to be missed.
The ability to make and create will also be available for all attendees as there will be button making, metal stamping, and typewriters for all to use.
All MakeSB performers are paid for their participation via mini-grant funds provided by the Santa Barbara Public Library.
