About Lucky Pineapple:
Lucky Pineapple is a six-piece musical frenzy involving Matt Dodds, guitar; William Benton (The Phantom Family Halo, guitar; J.C. Denison (Another 7 Astronauts), drums; Brian Sweeney, keys; David Cundiff, bass; and Susan Crocker, trumpet. All members of the band have a hand at vocals, percussion and songwriting. Coming from a variety of musical paths, Lucky Pineapple has converged and emerged to create music that goes beyond the average spectrum of sounds and style within a single project. Attracting audiences as diverse as their musical repertoire, Lucky Pineapple has made a name for themselves in the Louisville area for their visually and audibly exciting live performances.
Since their formation in 2004, Lucky Pineapple has been fortunate enough to take part in some exciting musical endeavors. The band performed for the Louisville installment of the Burn To Shine DVD series, (created by Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty and filmmaker Christoph Green) for which guitarist William Benton helped find the location as well as curate the project, which will feature Will Oldham, Shipping News, Lords, Dead Child, Liberation Prophecy, Parlour, Magik Markers and others.) Lucky Pineapple has also shared the stage with Faun Fables, Meat Puppets, Barbez, Gore Gore Girls, Liberation Prophecy and French Toast as well as participated in local and national music-related festivals like Lebowski Fest and The Forecastle Festival.
Lucky Pineapple self-produced, recorded and released their debut album The New Rainbow in early 2006. It has gone on to be a local favorite with impressive sales and regular airplay on WFPK. The band had the great opportunity to record a five-song EP at Electrical Audio in Chicago in the fall of 2005.
In August 2006, the band released a split 7-inch on Noise Pollution with local cohorts VRKTM. In September 2008, Noise Pollution released the band’s follow up, The Bubble Has Burst In Sky City, which was subsequently re-released nationally in 2009 on SonaBLAST!. (Source: Jambase (with edits) )
About Prizzy Prizzy Please:
Prizzy Prizzy Please is a complete anomaly — a band of modest Midwestern jokers, shunning the use of an electric guitar to compose songs that seem to have as much in common with Van Halen as Devo, with TV on the Radio as much as T.V. off it (like the Discovery Channel), or with Parts and Labor as much as the E Street Band – so we admit that it’s hard to pin these guys down. They wouldn’t have it any other way. (Source: Joyful Noise)
