Dissent in the Ranks

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Dissent in the Ranks is an exhibition of artwork and ephemera associated with the band North of America, assembled/found in the basement by one of the bands founding members Mark Mullane. It showcases paintings, photographs and other media related to the bands history from 1997 to 2003, including internationally acclaimed artists Chris Kline and Steve Keene (Silver Jews, Pavement, Apples in Stereo).

From 1997 to 2003, NORTH of AMERICA presented an emotive brand of new music that both recognized and expanded upon the canons and clichés of a decade of guitar based indie rock. While blending the atonal guitar work of early era Chapel Hill bands with the math and dynamics of Chicago's more progressive sound, NORTH of AMERICA found their anchor in the urgency and sincerity of the DC influenced sc
ene, dropping indie rock's typical tongue-in-cheek smarminess in favour of a more intelligent and serious approach. All of this was filtered through a well-developed sense of structure and arrangement, preventing the songs from becoming mere exercises in musical athleticism and allowing for the occasional foray into hook-laden pop song delivery.

This is not a musical event. NORTH of AMERICA will not be performing.
