PERFORMER: 

DEAFHEAVEN

 

As 2012 came to a close, George Clarke and Kerry McCoy were living off of food stamps in a small apartment in the Mission District of San Francisco with six other roommates. They slept in closets and partitioned corners, licking their wounds after a year of touring with their band Deafheaven. While their debut album Roads To Judah was met with high praise, there wasn’t a large audience for their signature hybrid of black metal, shoegaze, and post-rock. Consequently, the band amassed a mountain of debt on the road and lost 3/5ths of their members to the financial security of full-time employment.

SPECIAL GUESTS: 

DRAB MAJESTY

 

Drab Majesty is the solo project of Deb DeMure, the androgynous alter-ego of L.A.-based musician Andrew Clinco. With its combination of reverb-drenched guitars, synth bass lines, commanding vocals, and rhythmic drum machine beats, this project is a stark departure from Clinco’s previous stints as drummer in Marriages and Black Mare. Dubbed “Tragic Wave” and “Mid-Fi” by DeMure, Drab Majesty eloquently blends classic 80s New Wave and hints of early 4AD with a futuristic originality.

UNIFORM

 

Uniform are a New York band straight out of the blackest of no-wave nightmares. Utilizing a simple setup of guitar, drum machine, and vocals (along with a wall of huge amplifiers), they provide the soundtrack for our society's collective nervous breakdown. The duo, comprised of Ben Greenberg (ex-the Men, Pygmy Shrews, Zs) and Michael Berdan (ex-Believer/Law, Veins, Drunkdriver), calls to mind the confrontational catharsis of Suicide, and the pounding, total assault of Godflesh. Uniform’s dense sonic barrage reflects the claustrophobia of being locked in a paranoid mind, with no hope of release.
