Brooklyn’s TALK NORMAL are high-tailing it from Austin up to the Midwest after SXSWhatever and tonight’s show is a circus of sonic weirdness. The lady-duo’s most recent record, Sunshine, out last October via Joyful Noise, is an unconventionally melodic noise-rock album that sparkles and pops with delightful dissonance, jarring rhythms and feedback-drenched guitars. Channeling the sound of their predecessors with a strikingly refreshing approach, TALK NORMAL’s live show intense and jubilant, taking on a meditative quality that we strongly recommend you witness. E+, featuring members of DISAPPEARS and HEAVY TIMES, is a band that shimmers with alien vocal harmonies, infectious synth flourishes and steady driving beats. Giant System says their songs are “like spooky stories about ancient astronauts waking up from carbon sleep on distant planets” and their live shows typically result in a state of rock-the-fuck-out hypnosis. DIY-newcomers ONYX SYSTEM returns to the Bottle tonight to kick things off with their fresh take on synthed-out lo-fi no wave discombobulation. BLIZZARDO is PETE F. from DINOWALRUS and he'll be performing a late-night set of house and techno after TALK NORMAL plays - stick around and get down, y'all!
