Three bands / and one drawing event during the show!
Ever screw around on MySpace, following friend links and listening to bands you've never heard of . . . and suddenly get your brain split open? Yeah, hardly ever, I know. But this unsigned Baltimore outfit, which I ran across just that way, works an astonishingly heavy and bouncy drone-dance style, thick with grainy bowed cello and indebted to Indian and north African trance music—plus they use an organ in a way that ought to get them arrested for indecent exposure. Granted, my soft spot for bands that do the Theatre of Eternal Music thing is amply documented, but that just means I know how rare it is for one to get so much mileage out of it—I think it's the way the drums and percussion drag the songs out of the lotus position and onto the dance floor."--Chicago Reader
gold ghost surely rock the hazy side of rock and roll. the songs, while breaching melancholic territory, ring loud and true with catchy pop influenced punk-in-spirit voracity. thick guitar, spaced out vocals and high energy drumming...so much fun...
Atlanta disco/postpunk band Roman Photos formed in the Summer of 2009. Utilizing rave-able synth textures instead of the traditional guitars and a solid disco drum and bass, Roman Photos have played a dozen shows with all kinds of Atlanta bands. Roman Photos attempts to bridge the gap between current live disco bands and the various electronic only house cultures.
"We gave the audience shakers and cow bells, so no matter what, we could never re-record that song the way it sounds because it was a spur of the moment thing to do an all percussion song like that, and get some of our friends to play with us — friends that had no idea that they were going to even play"
COLLABORATIVE DRAWING EVENT:
"Collabodoodle is back ya'll! Started by Em! in the summer of 2007, local hangout kids would gather round weekly on a coffee house patio and doodle in to the night. Large table top boards, paintmarkers, paint, and brushes will be provided courtesy of the Back Pocket Famile.Gather round and doodle for the sheer sake of doodling while soaking in the magical jams of travelling band Teeth Mt. and A-town's very own, Gold Ghost. Completed doodle boards will potentially be placed along Atlanta's Beltline for public display."
