Exposed bricks covered with installations by local artists. Wooden beams wrapped in light garlands. A scene made of pallets stacked like building blocks. If you are a fan of the Marquette music scene, you have certainly been here before.
The industrial interior of Ore Dock Brewing Co. is a frequent destination for local and regional musicians of all styles and genres. Tonight a new band will share the stage with local musicians tonight from 8 p.m. to midnight.
The double album release gig features the two punk bands The God Eaters and 34C, and it celebrates the reunion of the Muldoons after a 20-year hiatus, said Kris Wierenga, reservations manager at Ore Dock. Admission is $ 5 and the venue will be open to adults 18 and over.
“It will be a boisterous and boisterous experience, a bit more energetic than some of the other bands we’ve hosted,” Wierenga said.
For The Muldoons, a local group, this is the first time since the 90s that the original members of the group have performed together.
“It’s definitely the heavier side of things,” Wierenga said. “It’s going to be a little louder than what people are used to.”
The God Eaters, a three-member psychedelic punk rock band, will release their four-song EP vinyl record “Fading Horizons”.
“We printed all the record covers ourselves,” said Nick Erickson, the band’s drummer. “We were standing until [2 p.m.], and we still have more to do.
What started as a duet with Erickson and Dylan Trost, the band’s guitarist and vocalist, turned into a trio with the arrival of Devyn Trost, Dylan’s younger brother, on bass. The God Eaters have released three albums on their Bandcamp profile since June 2017, a year after the group was conceived.
The official release also kicks off a weekend concert series called Thundersnow which will take place in Gladstone, where 20 rock and roll bands from the Midwest, including The God Eaters, will perform for three days at the Terrace Bay Hotel. . More information about the event can be found on the Facebook event page.
They have other more album plans on the horizon, said Dylan Trost. These plans include a modernist noise-style album collaboration with another Midwestern band.
“The good thing about this group is that we are constantly creating,” Trost said. “We play what we love. If it is difficult to make music, then you are not doing it well.
Erickson of The God Eater recorded and mixed 34C’s debut album, “Post-Breakup,” which was released last November.
This two-member female punk group includes Heather Evans and Irja Rayn, who will officially release their new CD album “Butthurt”. Both members sing and die on guitar and drums.
The duo have been playing together for about a year and plan to release more albums in the coming months.
“We are very excited about the programming of this show and the place of heavy music in the community,” added Wierenga.
