EARLY SHOW! 5-9pm. $10 at the door. 21+
Holed up in the far-flung Quonset of his mind, Sic Alps’ MIKE DONOVAN is free to beam his haunted falsetto on waves of ripping feedback into the yawning spaces of the lo-fi (but ever-expandin') rock and roll project universe. A craftsman, he casts his classic bubblegum ditties in shades of dream-strewn gray, an arrested envelopment of glitter rock/metal machine music for the DAC age. Flee the urban squall!
BRIGID DAWSON (Thee Oh Sees/OCS)
A rare solo show by interstellar chanteuse Brigid D., who's been recording and readying her debut solo LP.
"Hooky-heavy psychedelic-pop that never devolves into fake drug-haze BS. That’s not to say Bozmo’s not on drugs, he probably is, he just doesn’t drag that s*** into work with him. There’s two distinct flavors here: lip-smacking sunshiny pop tunes, like insta-hit Wig Strut, and heavier bummer-jams like Open Wide. Both are equally groovy." - Louder Sound
