New Planet Trampoline/Queen of Hell/Shale Satans

When: Sat., April 26, 9 p.m. 2014

Locals New Planet Trampoline released two records to much critical acclaim: The Curse of the New Planet Trampoline (Elephant Stone, 2004) and the fantastic and heavily psychedelic Blimps & Aeroplanes EP (Davenport, 2005) and toured regularly before singer-guitarist Matt Cassidy dropped out of the band because, as he’s said, he got “burned out.” Cassidy spent the past eight years devoting his time to his noise project, 9-Volt Haunted House, mostly staying away from his guitar and bands. But it was an invitation to participate in 2013’s Lottery League and the way that the participants rallied around the death of Lottery Leaguer Ted Flynn, and his It Men bandmate Ken Janssen’s diagnosis with Lou Gehrig’s disease, that made Cassidy realize he missed the community of New Planet Trampoline. Now the band is working on a dual album and EP project with most of the basic tracks recorded when Cassidy walked away from the band. Expect to hear some of those tunes at tonight’s show. (C.J.
