Cloud Nothings, a well-traveled pop rock band from Cleveland will headline the Live Wire concert
Thursday, at the Clazel Theatre, 127 N. Main St., Bowling Green.
Cloud Nothings already has three albums, appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and several festival
dates including Pitchfork Music Festival, Culture Collide, and several European Tours under their belt.
Born in a Cleveland basement, Cloud Nothings is comprised of 20-somethings Dylan Baldi on guitar, drummer
Jayson Gerycz, and bassist TJ Duke. Prolific from the start, Baldi’s early work was rough but immediate:
crudely recorded, spring-loaded spasms of Buzzcocks-informed pop that quickly found an online following
among the lo-fi-inclined.
When an opportunity presented itself to open a small show in Brooklyn, Baldi abandoned a
still-in-progress final project to be there. The gamble paid off – he’s been touring ever since, using
every available break to write and record more.
Supporting Cloud Nothings is Detroit-based band Tyvek. The band formed in 2004 when Kevin Boyer, Larry
Williams, and Matt Ziolkowski, three friends and music fans fed up with the redundant garage rock then
clogging the proverbial pipeline, decided to form a punk band. Refusing to let a lack of musical ability
or equipment hold them back, they started jamming and honing idiosyncratic songs about everyday stuff:
girlfriends, the neighborhood, expressways, cats, partying, nightmares and frustration. They have
released several singles and three full length albums.
Bowling Green favorites The Flaming Hot Marbles will open the show.
Tickets are $10 presale and $15 at the door from Finders Records and on wbgufm.com.
The Live Wire concert series is recorded as a TV and radio show by WBGU-FM.
The Live Wire TV show airs on WBGU-TV and is available free of charge to PBS affiliates.
