Stardeath & White Dwarfs are coming to the Southgate House in Newport, Kentucky on Thursday, September 3rd. Koala Fires and State Song will be opening up the show. I believe we’ll be playing in the middle, also known as the “rock slot”.
Who are Stardeath & White Dwarfs? Well, everything I’ve read about them mentions that they are fronted by Dennis Coyne, nephew of Wayne Coyne, and that they have toured a lot with The Flaming Lips. The self-described psych/prog/experimental pop quartet is definitely playing within some of the same genres as The Lips—check out this video for their song “New Heat”, including an introduction by Wayne Coyne, who was also the director.
Also performing will be State Song, another Cincinnati band that we’re really excited to be sharing the stage with for the first time.
