RIVET THE BAND

A riff-driven, no frills heavy rock band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band’s distinctive style/sound was created by their guitarist Mat Rile (MEDUSA, GRINDER, GROUND ZERO, S.O.S. , TRIP TRIGGER, etc). With Sleight (PSYCHO THRUST) raspy dirty-toned vocals & Mat`s grungy raw guitar tone – Rivet`s sound was born.

 

Rivet has also recorded a 7 song CD featuring many of their best tunes. Now the band consists of two new members Tom Bielek (EOE) on bass and Sticky Stavinsky (ANESTHESIA, BLACK END ROOTS) on drums. Both of their unique style combined as a rhythm section adds a certain chemistry and a convincing “DEPTH” to the sound of Rivet.

 

Rivet delivers in every way with catchy riffs, power, attitude and aggressive performance. Their music has a raw/pure sound that incorporates the influences of all the great bands from AC/DC, SoundgardenMotorhead, Alice in ChainsCircus of Power, etc.

 

Rivet performed in many venues including the Key ClubKnitting Factory, RoxyViper RoomWhiskey a Go Go and the House of Blues on the Hollywood’s infamous Sunset Strip. They also opened for many national acts as well.

 

Rivet has been featured via media such as LA WeeklyRock City NewsMusic Connection,

and several cover features for All Access. They were also featured on the Adam Carolla radio show.

Meet the Cast of New Federal Theater’s IN THE WINE TIME

Woodie King Jr’s New Federal Theatre kicks off its 44th season with the first play of “The Ed Bullins Project” – two revivals from his “Twentieth Century Cycle of Plays” – IN THE WINE TIME, to be followed by The Fabulous Miss Marie this spring. In The Wine Time, directed by Mansoor Najee-Ullah, will begin performances October 25th at Castillo Theater (543 West 42nd Street), continuing through November 24th. Opening Night is set for Thursday November 7th.

IN THE WINE TIME will feature Richard Brundage, Angelique Chapman, Khadim Diop, Matthew Faroul, Lindsay Finnie, Harrison LeeCatherine Peoples, Shirlene Victoria Quigley, Sandra Reaves-Phillips (Rollin’ On The T.O.B.A, Lean on Me, ‘Round Midnight), Kim SullivanEddie Wardel, and Eboni Witcher. In The Wine Time will have scenic design by Tony Davidson, lighting design by Shirley Prendergast, costume design by Ali Turns, and sound design by Sean O’Halloran.

Ed Bullins is considered one of the most prolific and influential playwrights of the Black Arts Movement. Winner of the prestigious NY Drama Critics’ Circle Award and OBIE Award for The Taking of Miss Janie, he has greatly influenced American theatre, especially Black theatre. He is the author of more than 100 plays that have been produced throughout the United States and Europe. His acclaimed canon of plays include Clara’s Ole Man, Dialect Determinism (or The Rally), How Do You Do (1965), A Minor Scene, It Has No Choice, The Theme Is Blackness (1966); In New England Winter, Black Commercial #2 (1967); Goin’ a Buffalo, A Son Come Home, The Electronic Nigger, The Corner, In The Wine Time, The Gentleman Caller (1968); The Box Office, One-Minute Commercial, State Office Bldg. Cruse, The American Flag Ritual, We Righteous Bombers (1969); The Helper, Death List, A Short Play for A Small Theater, Street Sounds, The Man Who Dug Fish, The Duplex, It Bess Dat Way, A Street Play, A Black Time for Black Folk (1970); The Fabulous Miss Marie, Night of the Beast (1971); The Play of the Play (1973); Malcolm: 71 or Publishing Blackness (1975); The Taking of Miss Janie, The Mystery of Phyllis Wheatley: An Historical Play for Young Americans, I Am Lucy Terry: An Historical Fantasy for Young Americans (1976); City Preacher (1984); High John Da Conqueror: the Musical (1985); and Salaam, Huey Newton, Salaam (1990), among othersHe received the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk Vernon Rice Award, the Drama Prize at the Venice Biennale Arts Festival, an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Columbia College, three OBIE Awards, two Guggenheim fellowships, three Rockefeller Foundation Playwriting grants and three NEA playwriting grants. A Professor of Theatre at Northeastern University, Mr. Bullins has also won AUDELCO Awards and The Black Theatre Festival Living Legend Award. Bullins has published four collections of plays: Five Plays by Ed Bullins (1968), The Fabulous Miss Marie (1970), The Duplex: A Black Love Fable in Four Movements (1971), Four Dynamite Plays (1972) and The Theme is Blackness (1972), as well as short prose The Hungered One: Early Writings (1971) and a novel The Reluctant Rapist (1973). Bullins was recently represented Off-Broadway by the York Theater’s revival of Storyville. His work, characterized by disdain for ineffective political rhetoric as a substitute for action, most often examines the lives of Black people in the inner city. In 1968, Clive Barnes, writing in the New York Times callEd Bullins “a welcome addition to the ranks of New York playwrights.” Four years later, Barnes added “Bullins writes the way Charlie Parkerplayed: It is all so easy and effortless. It sounds improvised, and yet it doesn’t sound improvised, simply because it is the improvisation of formality.” Today, Bullins is regarded as a seminal force in the American theater.

IN THE WINE TIME is the story of Ray, Lou and Cliff – people so linked by blood, law, or friendship that they simply cannot walk away from their relationships, regardless of how unpleasant or destructive they might be. Bullins addresses these issues. It is Ray’s rite of passage. Dramatized are the many levels of denial but nothing more overwhelming than the sheer weariness, that is the numbness of poverty as expressed in cheap wine. Though incomplete, the Twentieth Century Cycle stands as one of the monuments of African-American drama, Its sweep and scope influencing, among others, August Wilson. Originally planned as a series of twenty plays, it traces the lives of an extended family of African Americans through the Cold War era. Like Wilson, Bullins intended these plays to engage broad historical questions facing African Americans. In the Wine Time marks Bullins’ first successful use of music as a truly dramatic element. The competing radios of the Dawson’s (which Plays rhythm ‘n’ blues) and Miss Minny Garrison ( playing gospel) provide a sense of historical situated ness, clarify the deep moral and metaphysical issues at stake, and underscore the very different attitudes and expressive styles in conflict on this small side street of a large northern industrial city in the early 1950s. Black theater has its strongest traditions in the realistic genre and as such has projected middle class hopes of the aspiring Africa-American Bullins pulls his images and words from the deepest layers of the dispossessed: the highest aspirations here are just to exist. Bullins writes a sharp, hard-hitting dialogue and is acidly humorous, with an occasional hint of thwarted lyricism breaking through…[His] work show coherence and power. Opening in April: Ed Bullins‘ 1971 play, The Fabulous Miss Marie, is set in Los Angeles during the Civil Rights’ student sit-ins. This is arguably Bullins’ greatest work, one that bears comparison to Anton Chekhov‘s The Cherry Orchard. Like Chekhov, Bullins is interested in how love can be expressed in a “cemetery of human failure and class arrogance.” With this play, part of his Twentieth Century Cycle, Bullins perfected a dramatic structure also found in In the Wine Time.

Mansoor Najee-Ullah had the privilege to direct Ed Bullins Salaam Huey Newton Salaam produced by the New Federal Theatre in October 2008. He has also directed Shango De Ima at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Walking On Waterston at Rites & Reasons Theatre Brown University, Plumes at New York University, For Colored Girls… by Ntozake Shange at Long Street Theatre (University of South Carolina), MoJo by Alice Childress at Ethnical Cultural Society New York, Partake of the Goatmeat at Theatre for the Open Eye and many other Off-Off Broadway theaters in New York City.

With Sleight (PSYCHO THRUST) raspy dirty-toned vocals & Mat`s grungy raw guitar tone – Rivet`s sound was born. Rivet has also recorded a 7 song CD featuring many of their best tunes. Now the band consists of two new members Tom Bielek (EOE) on bass and Sticky Stavinsky (ANESTHESIA, BLACK END ROOTS) on drums. Both of their unique style combined as a rhythm section adds a certain chemistry and a convincing “DEPTH” to the sound of Rivet.

Rivet delivers in everyway with catchy riffs, power, attitude and aggressive performance. Their music has a raw/pure sound that incorporates the influences of all the great bands from AC/DC, SoundgardenMotorhead, Alice in ChainsCircus of Power, etc.

Rivet performed in many venues including the Key ClubKnitting Factory, RoxyViper RoomWhiskey a Go Go and the House of Blues on the Hollywood’s infamous Sunset Strip. They also opened for many national acts as well.

Rivet has been featured via media such as LA WeeklyRock City NewsMusic Connection, and several cover features for All Access. They were also featured on theAdam Carolla radio show.
