9:30 Spelling Bee (Experimental)
The dynamic between Joseph Hess and Mabel Suen is more akin to that of a wacky sitcom couple than members of a noise-rock band. Suen is tiny and reserved while Hess is lanky and extroverted. Their individual polarity is best realized when the duo takes the stage, or more commonly the floor, as Spelling Bee. Hess punishes his drum kit like he's playing a hyperactive round of Whac-A-Mole while shouting with the guttural attack of a post-hardcore frontman. Meanwhile, Suen barks lyrics into her microphone as she summons fuzzed hooks from her Fender Mustang with the concentration and accuracy of a sniper. The balance Spelling Bee strikes is shockingly delicate, especially considering how many decibels the band conjures from its deceivingly simple setup. RW

10:45 Midwest Avengers (Hall of Fame Inductee)
Midwest Avengers is one of the longest standing and most well respected hip-hop groups in the city. Pioneering a live-band arrangement in the area, the group remains an elder statesman and ambassador for the scene.

Anyone else having trouble downloading the schedule file (above)? I get an error (and I have Acrobat Pro). What a shame - I really want to look at it, and the image above is not really legible.

Hey, RFT - know how you've got banners about this all over the website page? Well - if you click on one and go to the schedule link - it still has a "coming soon" message. Isn't it about time it came?
