Ceremony, Slammers, Ed Schrader's Music Beat & Give
Since their 2006 debut, Ceremony has slowly evolved from a group of hardcore punk traditionalists into a menacing contingent of the garage revival. On Zoo, the group’s 2012 offering on Matador, tempos slowed and screams turned to snarls, until alternating glimmers of 13th Floor Elevators, Count Five and MC5 began to surface. Hailing from D.C., Give shares some of the same hardcore roots, but with a proto-grunge style and a groove borrowed from early Black Flag. The palate cleanser at this soiree comes courtesy of Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, a spectacle that sounds truly bizarre outside the context of a Beat-era poetry slam: Accompanied only by his floor tom and Devlin Rice on the bass guitar, the affable Schrader pounds out sermons with a righteous fury, softened by only an occasional joke.
