GOING BLANK AGAIN: An Evening of Contemporary White Noise

The first in a series of local shows featuring shoegaze, drone, dreampop, and noise rock. Episode One includes static from:

Camera
Skywave
Alcian blue
Landspeeder
Stereocrash

. . . plus madflowr (Rock Candy/Make-Out Party) and DJ Sonic(Now!/Landspeeder) spinning before, between, and after the sets.

Stereocrash = Otherworldly soundscape ballads and textured blissed-out guitar experimentations.

Landspeeder = Sonic Drone Pop. Melodic, catchy dreampop sometimes immersed in hazy shoegazer dissonance, influenced by Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Pale Saints, Teenage Fanclub, et al.

Alcian Blue = Meshing hard pounding rhythms and atmospheric guitars to create space rock anthems and roaring noise. It's the music of Pet Sounds orchestrated by F-15 Engines.

Skywave = Taking rock and roll and pushing it to it's limits, Skywave takes influences from the shoegaze era and turns it up a few notches creating super intense walls of sound.

Camera: Ex-LowSunday members further explore dark textures and complex song structures with total pop sensability.

Please come early!!!"

aquatic, the life

the 'gwai

the 'gwai were great. wow. they really were. i taped the show. i haven't watched it yet, but i know it'll be okay. my arms ache from holding my camera. i am feeling so tired + so hungry. i'm almost too tired to walk to my bed to take a nappy. i might do that in a minute. last night was so fun! i will reiterate the fact that i love meeting new people and learning about ppl who i know very little about. shannon + tim came with me to the show last night and we met up with 5 other kids there [laini, ding, nic, bob, and vilkas]. anyways the show completely blew me away. mega shout outs to bob for the ear plugs, because without them my ears would have fallen off. even with them in, it was hella loud. mmm.

speaking of hella loud: i just called laini + told her about the mush records showcase on 4 june that i became interested in when i saw cLOUDDEAD were playing. hood played some dates with them and that was how i heard of them. however, i had not heard them until today. i went on a downloading spree and downloaded stuff by all the bands playing. AND EVERYTHING IS GOOD. so that show will be pretty darn good then! and sleep would be good too; right about...now.
