Righteous rages for all ages, a early evening freak matinee at the
Brickhouse this Monday.. read on:
Grackles. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology decribes them as "a familiar
sight on suburban lawns, the Common Grackle can be recognized by its
iridescent purple and bronze plumage and long, keel-shaped tail."
Jerky guitar & saxophone pecking over uppity punk grooves inna heavy
freakout stylee - or something like that. These mofos shred aluminum
lawnchairs & are returning suburban waste to the wild prairies and
forests that they should be. They're on tour out from their Pittsburgh
nestingplace, so let's show em some love.
Noise Nomads mines the under-used volcanic slurry beneath the
Connecticut. It is the lifelong solo project of Jeff Hartford, a
master doodler, zinemaker, & noisician with a visceral knowledge of
western mass, duct tape, soils, and large peavy amplifiers. Noise
Nomads channels the pain of the Paleolithic collapse and delivers some
juicy cathartic goods.
Brickhouse regulars Moscow Mule will be dousing us in their flammable
material of the unhinged percussive wash of Cory Matthews swirling
around the gross shards of bass & throat overload of Florian Coco
Shactl. Flaming Dragons of Middle Earth mastermind Danny Cruz is
joining Moscow Mule for this rare set, most likely guiding the band
into territories far darker than they have ever been before. Although
these three are used to working in the more spawling & orchestral
FDOME setting, they have decided to deliver a more concentrated dose
of "possession session" in this chamber-trio format. Hear the masters
up close and without all that black-tie formality!
The lecture for this show is gonna be a 13 minute video called "Ilha
Das Flores (Island of Flowers)" by Jorge Furtado. It's a brilliant
Brazilian flick that is a dense & fast-paced, "ironic, heartbreaking
and acid 'saga' of a spoiled tomato."
DJ 1 2 X U will be spinning records twixt sets - He represents deep
Holyoke roots and virtues, and his skills on the decks float like
bricks in a riot. Mashups, quickcuts and collisions of hiphop,
hardcore, dub, noise and who knows what will crack ears and open
Oh! and opening the proceedings will be a brief set by a fresh unit of
sputtering anarcho-punk from TF's Bank$hot.
Montague Phantom Brain Exchange is a place where bodied & disembodied brains
& nonbrains can safely gather to deconstruct solutions & create problems
while soaking in an envigorating bath of provocative entertainments. Last
wednesday of every month, 9pm to midnight, at the Rendezvous (bar with
food!) 78 3rd St Turners Falls, MA. A typical evening will include 2 - 3
