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:

Alcian blue

. . . plus madflowr (ROCKcandy/make-out party) and DJ Sonic (Now!/Landspeeder) spinning before, between, and after the sets.

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 sensibility.

so if you're twiddling yr thumbs wondering what to do tonight, come out to the metro and bliss out to shoegazey sounds. i just hit my head while trying to hook up my scanner. ps i was UNsuccessful in my mission. sigh. stupid old scanner. i wanted to scan my first batch of pics taken with my lomo supersampler yellow, but now that has to wait until i buy a new scanner.
