Days N Daze, Ground Score, Juicy Karkass, Not A Part Of It

September 6, 2017 - 9:00pm

On Wednesday, September 6, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 88.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome Days n Daze to the WOW Hall along with special guests Ground Score, Juicy Karkass and Not A Part of It.

Currently touring in support of their seventh full length album CrustFall, Days N Daze was formed as a duo in 2008 by Houstonians Whitney Flynn and Jesse Sendejas.  Since then, they've taken on different musicians to create a full recording and touring band.  Presently, the rhythm section includes bassist Geoff Bell and percussionist Meagan Melancon.  Flynn and Sendejas remain the principal songwriters.

The sound of Days N Daze has been described as "riot folk" or "thrashgrass."  Song themes run the gamut from social (gang violence, terrorism, annihilation of the environment for corporate pocket-lining, the mundane and unavoidable anxieties of modern life, et al) to recreational (how did we end up in jail?).

Days N Daze embraces the D.I.Y. ethic by independently recording, packaging and promoting their own music. 

Best known for their live shows, DnD are energetic to the point of audience members stripping their clothes off in ecstatic, music-induced jubilation (or, too much PBR).  The band has performed throughout the United States and Canada in venues ranging from house shows to festivals. 

DnD independently booked and promoted a full U.S tour with New Zealand’s Night Gaunts after their split release in 2015.  They also had the privilege to tour with Leftover Crack and are featured on LOC’s album Constructs of the State.  

On the road, DnD has played the D.I.Y. staple Mountain Blood Fest, at Skatopia's Bowl Bash and has played multiple sold out shows across the states including in New York City and Los Angeles.  At home, it performs routinely at well-regarded spaces such as Walter's and Warehouse Live.  The band was honored with the award for ‘Best Punk Act’ in 2015 by The Houston Press

GroundScore is a  punk/reggae band out of the District of Columbia that records for SMB Records.  The band members are Zach Bellas, Nick Graves and Chase Lapp.

Juicy Karkass always wanted to be a rapper -- until he caught a whiff of punk rock.  “It was one of my mom's friends who corrupted me,” he recalls.  “He had a cassette with Circle Jerks' Golden Shower of Hits on one side and Suicidal Tendencies' first album on the other…  Suddenly I wanted to be a punk.

“I stayed into punk for the next couple decades… But my appreciation for hip-hop never dwindled.  I spent years secretly scrawling rap lyrics into notebook after notebook, troubled by the notion that my desire to be a rapper was somehow at odds with my punk rock identity.”

Now Juicy Karkass is is simply doing whatever he feels like doing… and if that ain’t punk, what is?

Not A Part Of It is a three-piece punk band hailing from Eugene, united by their love of music and the desire to create original politically conscious rock ‘n’ roll.  This trio has created a sound all their own complete with a live performance full of raw energy and songs full of passion and conviction.

The band consists of songwriter/vocalist/guitar player Jason Burton, bass player/back-up vocalist Daylon Liles, and drummer Cody Lamb.  The trio came together in February 2014 and has recorded two full-length albums: Don’t Let the Bastards Down (2015) and Nine Lives of the Night Life (released February 2017).  They have also completed five West Coast tours.

Not A Part Of It is also pleased to announce they will be releasing a 4-way split 7” this summer with The Dwarves, Potbelly and DOA.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 9:00.
