It List: Thursday
These fliers were so cool, I had to include both of them...
Kilt/Acre/Bully Pulpit/PSOAS (House Of Tinntus): This noise show looks to be heavy on formlessness and drone, and it sounds like it will be on the harsher side of things, as opposed to ambient. Acre might be the lone exception, as their serene name suggests. PSOAS is a collaboration between House Of Tinnitus/Aphonic Curtains' member Rob Buttrum and Jonah from The 8th Continent. Jonah will be using his DIY electronics which I've seen him use live before, and they create a pretty impressive racket. By the way Kilt, that's a hell of a URL you've got there.
Antelope/Attractive and Popular/El Paso Hot Button/Balthazar/Prince William (City Tavern): This looks like a pretty good show, especially since it's free. Antelope describe themselves as playing "meditative, stripped-down punk music" of the sort that you don't hear much anymore. Attractive And Popular make yet another appearance featuring their straight-ahead dance rock and uniformed live antics. El Paso Hot Button has a pretty interesting one-man band routine, but the music is fairly standard riff rock. Prince William will be spinning records in between bands.
Matthew And The Arrogant Sea/Florene/A Childlike Fear/Verulf/Backflap (Rubber Gloves)
Deathray Davies (Granada): How many current and former Observer writers can you fit in the Granada?
