This event is 18 and over

You strapped on your Buffalo Platforms, fed your Tamagotchi, & MmmBop-ed down to Claire's with a Surge in hand to pick up that limited "Heart Of The Ocean" Titanic Necklace. It was '97, and you weren't gonna be drawn like one of those French girls without a pencil-case stuffed with Oreo O's or a head full of butterfly clips. Well, now you can finally complain about those Batman suit nipples with people who'll actually understand the context, as Will's is transported back in time to 1997! The Pauses will take you back 20 years with Music, Movies, Games, Foods, Dolly the sheep, Beepers, F-R-I-E-N-D-S, photobooths, raffles, trivia, themed drinks, and more. They and special guests Mike Dunn & The Company, Someday River, Thrift House, & Crit will perform full cover sets featuring songs by Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Blink-182, & many more! Both nights will be hosted by Luscious Lisa, and Dj Cub & DJ Bao will spin all of your favorites between sets!

The Pauses
The Pauses
The Pauses' (who prefer that their possessive noun-ing be spelled Pauseses) overall sound is one anchored in complexion and combination, a world where guitars are BFFs with synthesizers, horns, bells, and ukuleles. Tierney Tough's bright, fresh voice glides just as easily atop the breathy sparkle and agile math of "Go North" as it does the indie-pop sway and post-hardcore torque of "Beyond Bianca." From the serious, atmospheric mood of "The Migration" and "Pull the Pin" to the lithe, glitchy charm of "Hands Up". The Pauses got mad range, often in the same song. Rooted in the dynamics and ethos of '90s indie rock, their sound is a balancing act between rock and electronics, airiness and heft, suppleness and angularity. And their debut album, "A Cautionary Tale" (produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox and Burning Airlines) shows that you can explore without losing your core.

Since the album's release, The Pauses have released a split 12", contributed a track to a Jason Noble Benefit Compilation, played multiple festival showcases, invented Interact-O-Vision (a live interactive media show component), had songs featured in Harmonix's Rock Band and multiple films (see: McSweeney's "The Love Competition" http://vimeo.com/33698394), and have literally shared the stage (with members filling in as backup musicians) with War on Women, The Posies, Matt Pond PA, Davey Von Bohlen, Jonah Matranga, and John Vanderslice.

The Pauses second full-length (also produced by J. Robbins) will be released early 2018.
