PAST RECOMMENDED SHOWS:
12/18/10 @ Club 1808Austin vs. Houston Noise Night
Think of this battle royal like the Run DMC/Aerosmith “Walk This Way” video. On one side, Houston noiseniks Concrete Violin, Zahava, and Astrogenic Hallucinauting whip up Bayou gunk. In the other corner, Breakdancing Ronald Reagan, Dromez, Waco Girls, and Sex Bruises bring on the hometown racket. Place your bets!
09/12/10 @ Spider House BallroomThe Post-9/11 Noise Fiasco
Still feeling weird the day after? Not sure how to channel your emotions? Uncertain times call for uncategorizable music, and this free night of screech and drone is sure to fill your head with, well, something. Thrill to the electronic chaos of How I Quit Crack, Dromez, Skullcaster, Venison Whirled, Sex Bruises, Black Vomit, and many more.
08/01/10 @ Salvage Vanguard TheaterCriminal Tower
Local drum/synth duo Criminal Tower is calling it quits, because they’re both going off to college
. While you wrap your head around that, thrill to the neon blip of their 8-bit punk anthems one last time, along with the electronic missives of Dromez and Macho Blush.
05/10/08 @ Salvage Vanguard TheaterTerrastock Tea Party
Originating in Providence, R.I., 1997, Terrastock has evolved into a roving festival of the psychedelic arts, hosting groups like Bardo Pond and Neutral Milk Hotel over the succeeding decade. Next month, Terrastock 7 mulches the bluegrass of Louisville, Ky., so a mostly local cabal gathers this weekend to raise green. Friday, organ-eers Attic Ted headline, along with alliterative allies Aunt’s Analog and Abigail und Hansel. Saturday feels the noise with Houston’s feral Rotten Piece, the magik lullabies of Book of Shadows, and death-cult beats of Dromez. Sunday, Ralph White, Venison Whirled, and many more bring down the three-day high. Visit www.salvagevanguard.org
