Space Junk Is Forever, Tiberius Strange
2105 S. State St.
Chicago, IL, 60616
This event is 21 and over
Shifting between experimental rock, downtempo electronic and industrial aesthetics, Chicago's »radiant devices« explore non-traditional sounds and arrangements, pairing metal percussion with synths and undeniable punk energy. Front woman, Mojdeh, combines rich sung vocals and spoken word commonly exploring a range of social and intimate topics. In the words of CJ Laity (Chicago Poetry webzine): "When I think of Mojdeh performing her poetry into a bullhorn, I think of a female Jello Biafra."
The band has shared the stage with Saul Williams, Pere Ubu, Elzhi, Sorne, Making Movies, and numerous HBO Def Poets among others.
Mojdeh - vocals, bass, acoustic guitar, & percussion
Fyodor Sakhnovski - electric guitar, bass, metal percussion
Mason Payne - drums
Nick Webster - synths, electronics, samples
Space Junk Is Forever
Space Junk is Forever use vintage instruments to weave simple melodies, stirring harmonic language, and frequent key and meter changes into impressionistic, aptly titled tunes that ’70s prog lovers, mathy drummers, synthesizer geeks, and music theory nerds are all sure to enjoy.
Spawning from an idea about what a band would sound like would sound like in the Dune universe and spinning into something much more, three musicians have come together to explore the realms of sonic space-time through improvised jams. Come along and we'll see where the journey leads!
