With a single EP as an a cappella screamer-crooner to his name, Ed Schrader brought on bassist Devlin Rice to form the two-piece Ed Schrader’s Music Beat after the two met on the legendary 2008 Baltimore Round Robin tour. Rice’s presence instantly brought aesthetic focus to Schrader’s disparate musical tendencies. The primal screams were made driving and heavy and the visionary chants became post-new wave mood pieces. The evolution is unmissable on their first two records as a duo, Jazz Mind (2012) and Party Jail (2014).

On the Dan Deacon-produced Riddles (2018), the band exploded their sonic palette with the addition of synthesizers, player piano and a dedicated percussionist bringing to life a tracklist produced and co-written by Dan Deacon. Upon its release, the record garnered widespread acclaim. NPR called it an “odd and captivating piece of work.” Pitchfork called it “a defining point in their career.” Rolling Stone praised it as “a noise-punk album that bursts with psychedelic twists.” SPIN called it “a memorable and eclectic record … one that can bleed and weep and still make you want to get up and scream.”
 
Since 2010, the duo has mounted TK NUMBER tours across the U.S. and Europe both as a headliner and in support of major acts Beach House, Future Islands and Dan Deacon. They’ve shared bills with No Age, Lightning Bolt, Matmos and Ceremony.

Vaccine Policy

In our continued efforts to keep our community safe, and in response to the omicron variant, we have updated our COVID policy. Beginning January 6, 2022, Holocene will require customers to show proof they have received their COVID19 vaccination booster shot, if they are eligible to receive one. 

If they are eligible for the booster, but have not yet received theirs, they can instead provide a professionally-administered negative COVID test for entry, taken within 24 hours of show door time. 

If they are vaccinated but ineligible for their booster, (2nd shot of Moderna or Pfizer received less than 6 months ago, or Johnson & Johnson less than 2 months ago) then proof of that vaccination will suffice at the door.

For those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, we can allow a professionally administered negative COVID test, taken within 24 hours of show door time. However, this requires advance permission from venue staff – please contact hc@holocene.org if this applies to you.

We continue to require masks at all times indoors when not actively drinking or eating, in accordance with the state of Oregon mandate.

If you have any issues with this policy, you can request a refund up to 14 days prior to the event by reaching out to hc@holocene.org
