DOWNTOWN BOYS, DANGBATS, THE SHRINNIRS, REDUCTION PLAN presented at 750 Main by Willimantic Records
An all-ages show with cash bar for those 21 and over.

DOWNTOWN BOYS return to Willimantic along with REDUCTION PLAN, DANGBATS, and THE SHRINNIRS. Concert takes place at 750 Main Street in Willimantic. Will-call Brown Paper Tickets should be picked up the evening of the show at Willimantic Records, which is located next door to venue at 744 Main Street. Parking is located in the back of the building on Riverside Drive.

DOWNTOWN BOYS:"Dubbed 'America's most exciting punk band' by Rolling Stone, Downtown Boys is a self-described 'bilingual political dance sax punk party' from Providence, Rhode Island. They are known for their electric, politically charged performances, which take the audience on a frenzied tour through history, from the slave trade to police brutality today. A Hartford Courant reviewer wrote, quote, 'You can make the caseand people havethat Downtown Boys ... was the sound of punk rock in America in 2015.' The reviewer compared their performances to, quote, 'anarchic backyard barbecuespart political rally, but all danceable, kinetic party; thrash around, if you want, but pay attention.'" -

REDUCTION PLAN: Dan Manning has played Willimantic Records several times as a member of the outstanding UCONN rock bands COP and CONDITION. Towards the end of 2015 he began gigging out with a solo project he calls REDUCTION PLAN, a fantastic mixture of ambient fuzz and dream pop, swirling melodies with unobtrusive hooks layered over a warm hum, created with looped guitars and various electronic gear and gizmos. The first REDUCTION PLAN performance at Willimantic Records was stunning, and the second, somehow, even better. Do not miss REDUCTION PLAN on the 19th at 750 Main. Dan is likely on first, so get there early.

THE SHRINNIRS: "even this deep into the 21st Century, there are some names, people, bands, places that still seem ethereal, mythic, perhaps even apocryphal. So it is with a mutationally named duo (or so) formed in Willimantic, CT at the dag end of 1986. First as EB, then the Bimbo Shrineheads, then Shrin, Willmantic Shrin, Shrinnirs, Lost Shrinnirs and surely more variations, Dawn and Joe (with occasional fellow travelers) created a politically-canted, theatrically-advanced, noise/rock/folk combo inside a scene that wouldn't assume the New Weird America mantle for almost two more decades. Let these tunes buzz lightly through your mind garden, and see if you don't agree."
- Byron Coley/Thurston Moore

DANGBATS (just added to the show!): Dangbats are Lys Guillorn of Lys Guillorn and Her Band (vocals, guitar, banjo, lap steel) and Joe Russo of SPECTRAL FANGS (vocals, guitar, banjo). Their genre? Bat Country, of course. Some of the artists they like are: Louvin Brahs, The Cramps, The Damned, The Carter Family, and Johnny Cash.

MAL DEVISA was originally scheduled for this show, but had to cancel. She'll return to Willimantic soon, though.
