MAR 13 SOLD OUT! SECOND NIGHT ADDED: Tickets for Mar 14 onsale Friday 2/27 at 11AM Chop Suey presents CHOP SUEY'S GRAND OPENING feat. Dead Moon Dead Moon was a Portland, Oregon punk rock band. The band is fronted by singer-songwriter and guitarist Fred Cole; his wife Toody Cole plays bass, and Andrew Loomis plays drums. Formed in 1987, the band combined punk and country in their stripped-down sound. Fred Cole has engineered most of the band’s recordings and mastered them on a mono lathe that was used for The Kingsmen’s version of “Louie Louie.” Their early records, such as In the Graveyard, were released on the Tombstone Records label, named for the musical equipment store Fred and Toody operated at the time. Soon they caught the attention of the German label Music Maniac, and toured Europe successfully. Not until the mid-nineties did they tour the United States. Much of their following is in Europe. A U.S. filmmaking team (Kate Fix and Jason Summers) produced a 2004 documentary, Unknown Passage: The Dead Moon Story, which played in independent theaters around the U.S., New Zealand, and Melbourne International Film Fest, and might be offered with the upcoming Dead Moon box set on Sub Pop Records. Dead Moon has recorded for labels such as Empty Records, but most releases are on Music Maniac abroad and Tombstone in the U.S. The Tombstone label has also provided cheap mastering and duplication for other bands, serving more as a cooperative than a promotional vehicle. Fred and Toody are in their sixties. They currently own the Tombstone General Store in Clackamas, Oregon, and are building a shopping center nearby. Girl Trouble (MAR 13 ONLY) THE STORY OF GIRL TROUBLE...In 1964 Bon met Kahuna, her brother. Later, in 1983, Kahuna took up the guitar he'd built in high school shop class. Bon bought a little drumset from the Sears surplus store. They began to play together in an old shed located next to their parents house. Kahuna played one string and Bon played pretty much as she does today. School friend, Dale Phillips, decided to come over and play his fake Fender bass. The new trio practiced for a few months until they decided it would be a lot easier on everyone if somebody else could sing. They looked through all the possibilities and noticed that K.P. Kendall was taking over as self-appointed Master of Ceremonies at every party they attended. This was exactly the frontman they needed to keep everybody entertained while Kahuna changed broken guitar strings. TWENTY-FIVE YEARS LATER...the same four people are Girl Trouble. After tons of releases on as many indie labels; shows in every punk dive in the Northwest; tours of the US, Canada and Europe; and publication of the fanzine Wig Out, their long climb on the stairway to stardom is not over least that's what they think! Meet them now or meet them later, eventually you'll have to meet them. As Girl Trouble says, Our friends are on major labels. We are on medication.

Dwayne's graveled growl, Neil's overdriven guitars, Rick thrashing on the drums and Ian holding it all together with his thundering bass. In the early Seattle grunge days, when everyone was growing their hair and wearing love beads, the Derelicts held their punk ground, drinking and rocking down the house. They coined the "punk fueled with alcohol and hate" that made way for the Supersuckers and the Fumes, and lest we forget the 90's punk masters and successor to the punk thrown, Zipgun. Their live shows are legendary for their unpredictable inner band violence on stage and driving rock force. They became the MRR reference point for late 80's punk. Critics and fans alike measure the power of punk rock by the standards they held high. Unfortunately, they did disband (although they have done the one-off reunion show), and Neil went on to form Zipgun. Check out, if you can find them, their other releases on SubPop and Penultimate.
