Skating Polly, Lord Friday the 13th and Love Darts get weird at the Filling Station Wednesday, May 8th. Pop punk gets ugly at the Filler!
Over the past decade, few artists have embodied the unbridled freedom of punk like Skating Polly. Formed when stepsisters Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse were just 9 and 13, the Oklahoma-bred band have channeled their chameleonic musicality into a sound they call “ugly-pop,” unruly and subversive and wildly melodic. With Kelli’s brother Kurtis Mayo joining on drums in 2017, they’ve also built a close-knit community of fans while earning the admiration of their musical forebears, a feat that’s found them collaborating with icons like X’s Exene Cervenka and Beat Happening’s Calvin Johnson, touring with Babes In Toyland, and starring as the subject of a feature-length documentary. On their double album Chaos County Line, Skating Polly reach a whole new level of self-possession, ultimately sharing their most expansive and emotionally powerful work to date.
Lord Friday the 13th is a dollar store trash-glampunk band based in Austin, TX. Fronted by siblings Felix (vocals) and Sloane (guitar) Lenz,
their sound has been described as the Velvet Underground meets the New York Dolls, with hints of early Iggy and the Stooges. While honoring the origins of punk and the energy it birthed with it, Lord Friday continues the legacy of change and pushing boundaries on societal norms that true punk is known for. Challenging gender roles and conformity, Lord Friday is here to empower and inspire a new kind of punk for a new world.
The Love Darts don’t have a bio. Mere words cannot convey the chaos that occurs when the Love Darts sacrifice another set of amplifiers to the rock and roll gods on The Filler stage.
