The young prince of American Harsh Noise in the early-to-mid 2000's returns to Austin again for the first time in years, this time as a 2-piece. Pedestrian Deposit helped create the "modern" HN sound here in the States and has now started to work in beautiful compositions that rely as heavily on electroacoustic/sound-collage/academic elements as HN elements. Pedestrian Deposit is an unforgettable performance, pure sound worship. There's something in their set for everyone, every type of Experimental music fan. Classical fans take note as well!
JUST ADDED! One of Texas' most legendary Harsh Noise artists! Kevin Novak is one of the (many) kings of Noise in the South. Alongside acts such as Richard Ramirez and Concrete Violin, T.E.F. is one of the best and most popular in the area. He will not dissappoint. This will be his first time performing in Austin since performing as a member of BLJ at the very first Sux By Suxwest fest! DO. NOT. MISS.
NOTE: the above videos are NOT CURRENT. Fleeting Breath is a new project by Austin's Dillon Tulk, known for past solo Noise ventures such as Ferveur Noire and Scissortail. He also currently performs as part of 3-piece Industrial/PE group Askela (alongside Faiza of Mindless and Hunter aka Dakota Hogback). Who knows what Dillon's return to the world of solo performing has in store for us? I'm sure it'll be sick.
(Note: Sex Bruises are on tour in April. If you live outside of Austin, you should check them out!) Harsh Power Electronics, Noise, and Experimental sounds from Matt L. (Aunt's Analog) and Ali P. (Power Monster). Abused microphones, cymbals, guitars, cables, etc.
The awesome drummer of Pussyviolence, Aurora Plastics Company, and Plutonium Farmers brings us a full solo experience. Acoustic and electronic drumkits mix with samples, mic abuse, and absurdity for a freejazznoisecutupelectronicfuckfest.
Johnny and Connor, known for drinking/bathing in soy sauce, bringing a dead squirrel to a vegan place, eating each others' puke, feeding their cum & blood to a mouse, and other acts of performance FART, play the role of DJ at this event. Johnny does the KPWR show Wrestling Boner (DJ'ing Harsh Noise, Goregrind, Cybergrind, and funny crap) and has also DJ'd under the name DJ Nickelforth (Nickleback songs played in reverse). Connor has been a guest host on Wrestling Boner and has DJ'd a Bastrop fire benefit show with only songs relating to fire (such as "Firestarter" by Prodigy, "I'm On Fire" by Bruce Springsteen, "Chariots Of Fire," etc). They will keep you laughing between sets with their special brand of Funtertainment™.
..and in the Annex room, Haute Magie have set up a second Experimental show running at the same time!
Pan (on tour from New Jersey)
Pan Pan Pan (appropriate local openers, noodly guitar and drum noise with crazy vocalizations)
Pilgrimess (experimental lounge and ukelele)
Daze Of Heaven (drone/ambient)
Stoke Newington (ambient jazz meets harsh improv)
AND, AS ALWAYS, THIS IS A FREE SHOW! BRING DONATIONS FOR THE TOURING ACTs.
