This event is 21 and over
Connecting threads from the synth-heavy "Minneapolis Sound" to the future of sleazy electro-funk, Tickle Torture has been making waves in the local underground, as well as the national blogosphere. His chaotic live shows are half-party, half-performance art, and can often include up to 4 pounds of confetti. Armed with an all new live-band, Tickle Torture is the sex-pop soundtrack for a new generation of freaks.
DREAM MACHINES IS AN LA-BASED NEW NEW-WAVE DUO SPREADING ROUGH RAVE AND ROCK 'N ROLL MIX, FULLY GUITARED AND HEAVILY FOLDED, IT'S SO IGNITIOUS YET UNPOPULAR DUE DEMOLITION CHARGE SOUNDSCAPE. ADDICTIVE BY RUMBUSTIOUS COVERAGE, SLACKING BY PROPULSIVE MOMENTS AND VOCALS. BANGER.
After years of studying, performing, and writing a wide range of music separate of one another, LA-native twin brothers Jack and Benny Lipson ruminated upon what kind of material they could create and share together, plagued by the postmodern search for an artistic voice that compounds myriad and perhaps disparate influences. They finally realized that their knack for dramatic melody and harmony coupled with meticulously provocative lyrics about more than hetero-love can unify the gamut of artistic styles they continue to explore. They teamed with drummer Nicole Marcus and thus birthed a new musical family: jackbenny. And together, in a compartmentalizing world insisting to preach fear, jackbenny strives to spread, through the music, happiness and a love of unconditional diversity over the globe.
Chrome Canyon (DJ set)
Chrome Canyon is the solo project of composer / producer Morgan Z, who was a member of the NY underground cult band Apes & Androids. Since their break-up Morgan has spent his time collecting a wide range of rare analog synths and gear in his Brooklyn studio while writing, recording and producing his brand of original soundtrack sci-fi / space disco. His remixes (for artist such as Phoenix, Passion Pit, Anoraak, and Erika Spring) have been widely circulated and praised, and his remix of Foster the Peoples "Pumped Up Kicks" was in the Top 20 downloads of 2011 for RCRDLBL.com and released as a b-side to the UK single. His first release "Body Music" was put out by the French label On The Fruit. His first full length "Elemental Themes" is due out later this year.
