Mummy Dust Trippers (Bay Area, California) –
Please welcome the fully doused duet of Bay Area, California instrument builder Idaho Joe Windslow & melted maestro of absorbent atmospherics Grant Corum (of Million Brazilians, Psychic Sounds founder) presenting six new critical-paranoiac methods from the freshly squeezed cacti-crypt that the Mummy Dust Trippers call home. This is a full multi-media performance of very strange proportions not to be missed !
Blessed Broke (Kansas City) –
The Blessed Broke produces no-frills Americana, avoiding the boozy melodrama of many alternative country bands in favor of stark narrative numbers. Featuring the occasional murder ballad (“Bloody Lafayette”), the Blessed Broke’s self-titled debut is soaked in the gloomy allure of frontman Brian Frame’s acoustic guitar and weathered vocals in vein of Towns Van Zandt.
Very Special Guests:
Nadia & Anoushe:
The enchanting Nadia weaves a minimal tapestry of treated field recordings and electronic experiments into a sonic backdrop for collaborator Anoushe, who’s provocative performances always stir the darker regions of the imagination through her bizarre visual presentations.
Greg Jamie (of O’ Death):
As leader of gothic folk acts O’Death and Blood Warrior, Maine-based singer-songwriter Greg Jamie specializes mood and suspense. It’s often restrained, with reverb-soaked guitars accompanying thudding drums and indeterminable noise, but the mood remains intriguing, benefiting the freaky sonic space that Jamie conjures up.
