Illiterate Light

August 15 @ 8:00 pm - August 16 @ 12:00 am
Cat’s Cradle Back Room, 300 E Main St.
Carrboro, NC 27510 United States

Formed in the summer of 2015, Illiterate Light transcend expectations of typical rock music through their limitations as a duo. Jeff Gorman elevates his gritty guitar melodies and honest lyricism by stomping out thunderous synth bass with his feet as Jake Cochran layers lush vocal harmony and explodes with body convulsing energy around his minimalist standing drum kit. Gorman and Cochran’s incessant writing, commanding live performance, and constant touring promise a bright future as they finish their debut album with Vance Powell (Jack White, Kings of Leon, Chris Stapleton) and Adrian Olsen (Foxygen, Natalie Prass). “Better Than I Used To” is the first taste of what’s to come from Illiterate Light. Spanning the better part of a decade, the creative evolution between Gorman and Cochran is far from ordinary. The duo has run an organic farm in the Shenandoah Valley, toured the mid-Atlantic in bands by bicycle, and lived in small communities while pursuing modes of alternative education. Their eclectic background is mirrored in their sound and lyricism, floating between postmodern confusion and vibrant optimism. Though shaped by the DIY music scene of their hometown Harrisonburg VA, the duo has grown immensely through immersion in the thriving communities of both Richmond, VA and Nashville, TN.

Tyler Cassidy

August 16 @ 9:00 pm - 11:59 pm
$15

“LIMITED VIP/MEET AND GREET TICKETS AVAILABLE! Meet and Greet ticket includes admission and gets you in the show an hour before general doors for photos and autographs with Tyler! …Also comes with a sticker, poster, gloss photo, and other tour exclusives.” For the longest time, Tyler Cassidy, formerly known as Froggy Fresh, formerly known as Krispy Kreme, formerly known as Tyler Cassidy, was an enigma – having blurred the lines between who he is and his elaborately written character. The franchise was one of textbook Youtube legacy, a self-produced project that earned hundreds of millions of views, John Cena endorsement, Tosh.0 appearance, and survival of a rebrand and a follow-up album that charted 3rd on the Billboard Comedy chart. However, everything you thought you knew about Froggy Fresh was wrong. In a later self-retrospective, it was revealed that the project was birthed in Tyler’s feeling lack of attention to the preceding original music he had made. In 2017 – almost five years to the date of the first YouTube upload – Froggy Fresh surprised fans with a live tour, playing to packed venues across every crevice of the continental US. The tour was a swan song of the Froggy Fresh project as Tyler had grown out of it (and feared being stuck throughout his career as what he described as a Pee-Wee Herman type character). The formative life-experience of extensive travel through touring and connecting with fans, re-ignited Tyler’s creative flame as he taught himself to compose and perform on the piano. The initial offerings were solemn tunes of love, loss and redemption – written for a concept album. Now the listener, who had extended a Kleenex for Froggy’s nose in the Baddest, would use it for their own eyes. While these songs would earn Tyler critical acclaim and more millions of likes and views, his biggest hit would stray from the more serious, heart-wrenching material and land a spot on the cover of Reddit. Garnering the attention of major players in the music industry, Boyfriend rivaled the virility of any video from the Froggy Fresh project with one major difference – the video was a simple iPhone shot of him performing the song on his grandma’s piano, and finally his songwriting was recognized on its own. Additional material followed which features sultry tales, irreverent streams of consciousness, and a healthy dose of millennial “fuckitol” in response to this age of doom and confusion. Froggy Fresh was Tyler’s Trojan horse and he’s emerged with multiple albums of material plus a high-energy backing band…. and this born entertainer is just getting started.
