New Radio, Brzowski

Showcase Lounge

Pink-802 performance originally scheduled for May 7 has been postponed to August 7. All tickets for the May 7 performance will be honored at the August 7 show. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Due to Vermont’s high vaccination rate and significantly declining local hospitalization rates we will no longer be requiring proof of vaccination or a negative PCR result for events at Higher Ground, unless requested by the artist. This change will take effect on April 1st and will apply to performances at both the Ballroom and the Showcase Lounge. Please continue to watch for communications on any protocol changes for upcoming performances.

For this show, the artists respectfully request audience members “down the front” (within 10ft of the stage edge) wear masks covering nose and mouth during sets. Band members have personal and occupational vulnerabilities, and are  continuing to take extra health precautions.

$10 advance | $15 day of show

PINK-802: In 2009, drummer Jane Boxall dreamed of playing blink-182 songs through a “pink” (queer/feminist) lens. Ten years later, she recruited Alaina Hall to be in charge of the mic, belting lines from blink-182’s two singers like it’s no big deal. Corey Selover joined to play the guitar like she’s swinging a sledgehammer, and Jackie Buttolph stepped in to hold down the low end and top things off with sweet vocal harmonies. From Vermont to anywhere audiences ask “what’s my age again?”, PINK-802 brings the pop-punk/patriarchy-pummelling power.

New Radio: Jackie’s life was forever changed the first time she heard Bikini Kill. 20 years later, she finally put a cover band together to honor those original riot grrrls for teaching her that the personal is also political. Jane Boxall destroys the drums, Eric Daniels smashes the guitar, and Jackie Buttolph wrecks the bass while screaming her lungs out. They hope their catharsis can be your catharsis.

BRZOWSKI : Erstwhile Portlander / post-rap mainstay BRZOWSKI and lifelong Maine musician/producer C$BURNS have sculpted a collaborative relationship reaching back to 2011. An indie stalwart with many noteworthy credits and over 1,200 live shows spanning the western hemisphere under his belt, BRZOWSKI has not slowed his verbose and politically-pointed musical output, Fundemic be damned. C$BURNS has made a genre-spanning name behind the screen as a vaporwave and outré hiphop producer, and is no stranger to paying overage-miles on rental vehicles, or for extra sets of heavy-gauge guitar strings. They will be joined by frequent collaborator and VT drum-smasher-extraordinaire Jane Boxall. Social Commentary coupled with Dark Humor is a well-worn road for these comrades, but the biting criticism is coupled with a Lighthouse to guide us from the rocks: Possible Futures.
