About This Event

(((folkYEAH!))) presents Urban Heat w/ Gvllow + Delores Galore!

Wednesday, July 31st
Doors: 7pm / Show: 8pm
$20 in advance / $25 day of the show

The band formed in 2019 when multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Jonathan Horstmann enlisted Kevin Naquin and Paxel Foley to form a live show based on his analog sound design. The result fuses dark 80's stylings with modern flourishes, with Horstmann's throaty baritone delivering musings on existence and romanticism against an unrelenting industrial gothic pulse.

“The post-punk trio confronts the pervasive bleakness of life in pandemic-era America with an Atari blast of bubbling synths laid over insistent, body-shaking beats. These are not fluffy pop songs. Vocalist Jonathan Horstmann scratches at the many shades of malaise that have emerged as side effects of late-stage capitalism. He dances with darkness. He picks scabs 'til they bleed. He breaks through the pain.” - Deborah Sengupta Stith, Austin American-Statesman

GVLLOW blends the sonic and visual aesthetics of 80s new wave and southern California punk rock mixed with the beach sounds of Dick Dale and The Beach Boys to create a sound that is fresh, diverse and completely unique. Born and raised in Riverside, California, he grew up in the SoCal Punk scene. He started playing drums at age nine and would go to The Showcase Theatre in Corona every weekend to watch bands such as Dr Know, TSOL and Narcoleptic Youth.

Delores Galore is a New Orleans based artist fusing synth melodies of the past, present, and future into very personal and relatable ballads of self-expression. Live performances mirror the same emphatic energy and unique fusion of styles & influences 

Galore’s album “New Growth” gave us 5 tracks of lush, varied synth pop goodness. Her hit single “One Touch” caught the eye of the notable Acid Waxa and the full EP was reissued on the UK electronic label giving her productions some well-deserved international shine.

Their latest project “Don’t Get It Twisted” was released by the stateside reputable New Orleans-based label Community Records. The 5-tracker, “Don’t Get It Twisted” reflects Galore’s battle with everyday obstacles and the drive to push forward with resilience and strength.” -Samiul Haque
