Louie Louie
Louie Louie is an all female rock ‘n’ roll band whose sound mixes 60’s soul, vintage rock and post punk. Their sound is at once youthful, mature, powerful and vulnerable. For live performances, Louie Louie utilizes the visual opportunities a stage invites, in part by performing in a growing wardrobe of handcrafted suits. They sing about current issues. They sing about love. They sing about outer space. They sing about humanity. And while very obviously influenced by familiar sounds of the past, they've created something entirely unique and current.

Louie Louie has performed an impressive number of shows since it’s debut in January of 2015, touring the US and Canada as well as appearing at Cropped Out Festival (KT) and Hampdenfest (Baltimore). They’ve shared stages with Olivia Neutron-John, Fred and Toody Cole, The Coathangers, TEEN, Shonen Knife, The Mild High Club, Sheer Mag, Lumpy and the Dumpers, Bill Callahan, The Muffs, Chris Cohen and Amanda X among many others.

Their debut LP Friend of a Stranger was recorded and mixed entirely to tape and will be released via Born Losers Records on February 10, 2017. Their only previous release is a vinyl single titled Out In The Streets via Hidden Volume Records (Baltimore).
A Drug Called Tradition
In late 2014, after the dissolution of Atlanta heavy psych stalwarts Abby Gogo, singer/guitarist Bon Allinson began working on a batch of songs more heavily influenced by his upbringing in Alabama and by the musical traditions of the South. He brought these songs to drummer Puma Navarro (Abby Gogo) and bassist Asha Lakra (Tikka) and A Drug Called Tradition was born. As the trio’s sound developed, influences ranging from the laid back vibe of Kurt Vile to the guitar stylings of Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth, could be heard alongside echoes of the Krautrock of Can and the prog psych of early Pink Floyd.

ADCT made their Atlanta debut in December 2014, opening for Matt Hollywood of The Brian Jonestown Massacre. After playing local shows for the next few months, the trio cut a three song demo to tape with Spencer Garn (Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics) at Diamond Street Studios. The band then joined up with Spirits and the Melchizedek Children for a tour around the southeast.

In December 2015, ADCT will head to Dial Back Sound in Water Valley, Mississippi to record a full length album for Cornelius Chapel Records with Matt Patton (Drive-By Truckers) and Tim Kerr (Big Boys).
