THE VIVISECTORS – (SET TIME: 8:00 PM)

The Vivisectors are a psychedelia-surf band, originally from Russia, but who have recently relocated to Brooklyn, NY. The band has toured the U.S. East Coast yearly since 2009 and have finally decided to spend a bit more time in the states this time around. The Vivisectors started out as a solo project of it’s founder Mike “Vivisector” Antipow and has since grown to a four piece tight knit ensemble that includes Ivan Antipow (bass), Artem Upirev and New York native Mike Costarella. The Vivisector’s music can go from slow dark doom tunes reminiscent of the Gulag tunes of Mother Russia to in your face metal-sounding rock n’ roll that get’s the audience pumping it’s fists. Best of all, it’s almost all instro-mental, so no translations needed. The music speaks for itself and it may even yell on occasion. The Vivisectors started as a one man instro band and has since become famous for their Gulag Tunes, combining sunny surf music and Russian prison songs. They keep the dark side of rock’n'roll alive and current.

DOUBLE DOWN – (SET TIME: 9:00 PM)

From the classic lounge stylings of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, to fun twists on popular modern hits, Double Down plays the songs you know and love. The band’s original style fuses together their fresh, bold talents with a tribute to the songs of yesteryear.

Double Down gives the Rat Pack a swinging update for the new millennium. Their electrifying performance, tight sound and musical expertise allow them to move from hot jump-swing numbers to poignant ballads without missing a beat.

In addition to the old standards, Double Down dives into the songbook of today, bringing a unique twist to contemporary classics. From Billy Joel to Motorhead, from Nirvana to Usher, Double Down brings a classy lounge attitude to anything they get their hands on. Never content to rest on their laurels, Double Down is constantly adding new songs to their repertoire so every show stays fresh and their audience is always entertained.

DEAD FLOWERS (ROLLING STONES TRIBUTE – TWO SETS) – (SET TIME: 10:00 PM)

The Rolling Stones are a legendary English rock band formed in London in 1962.

This is not them.

The Return of the Vivisectors to Worcester! April 26 2013!

https://www.facebook.com/events/478188912238058/

Visiting from Russia, The Vivisectors bring Gulag Tunes from their homeland to Worcester. This is the fourth time The Vivisectors have brought their amazing gulag surf sounds to this country and the third time playing at Beatnik’s. Combining sunny surf music and chthonic Russian prison songs while exploring the dark side of rock’n'roll.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Vivisectors/124623237526

Opening will be NH’s Caught Flies. Four dudes from three New England states inspired to make loud, catchy, timeless rock and roll songs you can sing and dance to, drink to, fight to, drive very fast to (though don’t blame us for the trouble you get into). They don’t dress up pretty, don’t wear matching uniforms, don’t look the part at all and don’t plan to.

Snowed out last time at Beatnik’s The Numbskulls are a four piece neo-traditionalist punk rock band from Worcester, Ma. They have slept at your house, taken you naked swimming, gotten you drunk, toured the country, made your ears bleed, got you to start your first band, given you tons of free shows, played in your basement, put out 5 of your favorite records, and voted by you Best Punk Rock Band every year since they started this crazy trip.

Concert Review: The Vivisectors at Otto’s, NYC 3/26/10

“The band loves their dark, menacing chromatic riffs, doing them surf-style along with a couple of rockabillyish numbers, two bouncy go-go tunes and a song that sounded like either Blue Oyster Cult covering Link Wray, or Link Wray attempting a boogie.”

“They did a slow version of Misirlou that was as original – in both senses of the word – as the one that Magges does; their version of Pipeline was amped with a casually ferocious tremolo-picked jam on the second verse. But their originals were the best. Some wouldn’t have been out of place in early Black Sabbath if they’d been slower, others fluctuating eerily between minor and major. The band led by their US booking agent, Deb Noble of Blue Stingraye Productions, and her enthusiasm was contagious: hopefully the band will be back for another tour at some point.”
