Taking cues from the psychedelic noise of the ’60s, the art-damaged post-punk of the late ’70s, and the aggression and immediacy of early ’80s, Memphis-based Ex-Cult has curated a sound that audiences nationwide find accessible, yet not quite like anything else they’ve heard. Conceived at the legendary Memphis dive, the Lamplighter, by longtime friends Michael Peery (drums) and Chris Shaw (vocals), the band garnered a local fan base and grabbed the attention of the Memphis punk label Goner Records. After going through a name change (from Sex Cult to Ex-Cult) and releasing a couple of now impossible to find singles, the band is back on the road.
On Wednesday, June 13, Ex-Cult will be performing a headlining concert at Red 7. Captive co-headline. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
