A sonic free-for-all this Thursday night?

August 4, 2009

This looks like it could be a really wild spectacle/phenomenological-clusterfuck. I’ve never seen Deerhunter live, despite digging them since the point when everyone decided they were irrefutably diggable (around the time that Cryptograms was released); No Age, who I saw play at Union South (R.I.P.) last Fall, are certainly capable of conjuring sonic textures as tactile as they are aural (in other words, they take this so-called “face-melting” business very seriously); I can’t vouch for Dan Deacon, but what a gorgeous first-name. If any of you are planning to attend (and if the show actually happens, which I guess it will), don’t forget to ask Bradford Cox to sign your Jean Genet paperbacks after or during the performance.
