Uncommon Houseflies release party at Dillingers

NEW ALBANY —

Red Corduroy Music announced that the Uncommon Houseflies will celebrate the first of two release parties for its new EP “Hipster Apocalypse” on Friday, May 3, at Dillingers Music Venue, 203 E. Main St., in New Albany.

Dillingers is formerly known as the Parthenon Building and is registered on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the New Albany Downtown Historic District. It was established in 1837 as a bank and according to legend was at one point targeted by infamous bank robber John Dillinger.

The Uncommon Houseflies, which features two members who hail from Southern Indiana, have become mainstays at Dillingers recently, having played there at least four times so far in 2013.

“We’ll play Dillingers anytime they ask us to,” said Uncommon Houseflies guitarist Butch Bays, of New Albany. “It’s like our home away from home.”

“We’ve been playing together for a while now,” added bassist Kevin Gibson, a native of Jeffersonville, “and we’ve had some of our best shows at Dillingers. It’s a great room, with great people running it.”

Also on the bill are local mainstays The Mad Taxpayers and The Driftin’ South Band.

The Uncommon Houseflies are fresh off an appearance at International Pop Overthrow in Chicago, their second appearance at the annual festival. The band also plans to travel to Nashville and other regional cities to promote the EP this year.

“Hipster Apocalypse” will be the Uncommon Houseflies’ fifth release since 2007, and it will mark their first release for Red Corduroy Music, a Louisville-based label that focuses on helping indie artists connect with audiences outside their local scene.

The Uncommon Houseflies is a band that is often compared to Fountains of Wayne and Barenaked Ladies, although the band points to a number of influences ranging from mainstays like the Beatles and Johnny Cash, all the way to lesser-known artists such as Seattle’s Young Fresh Fellows and Boston’s Scruffy the Cat.

A second CD release event is planned for May 11 at Apocalypse Brew Works in Louisville. Find out more at www.uncommonhouseflies.com.
