Pete Nolan has been a figure in the U.S. underground basement psych scene for the past two decades. A co-founder of legendary noise-rock outfit Magik Markers (with whom he's amassed over 50 releases), Nolan has collaborated with the likes of Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley (who serves as drummer for his long-running Spectre Folk project), Jandek, J. Mascis, John Olson, Randy “Lee” Sutherland, Chris Corsano, Thurston Moore, Angst Hase Pfeffer Nase, Elisa Ambrogio, Double Leopards, Son of Earth, Julie Cafritz, Kris Abplanalp, Brian Ramirez, Steve Gunn, Aaron Mullan, Mick Flower, Ashtray Navigations, Kim Gordon, and Mark Ibold.

Cale has been releasing records under his own name for just shy of a decade. Duskland (No Quarter), the title of his latest record, is a work of craftsmanship full of elegant lyricism and mysterious imagery; a collection of songs that look directly into the face of darkness yet drive beyond it, forging new paths.
Taking cues from artists like Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind era Dylan and Nick Cave's work with the Bad Seeds, Duskland evokes a restless spirit, one that is informed by American myths and tall tales. There's a Western flair to many of the album's songs with nods to soundtrack composers such as Morricone and the dream-laden noir of Badalamenti. Many of the album's
highlights maintain a ceremonial grace.

Detroit's own Kathy Leisen (Soft Location, Glass Rock) gets the show started.
