Back in 2009 we hosted CALIFONE at the MCA around the release of the soundtrack and accompanying film for their 6th song based album, All My Friends Are Funeral Singers. It was a fantastic event around an album that continued to further the bands reputation as an outfit that creates entire universes in which to lose oneself. Full of layers and textures, offering endless depth and think spectrums of sound, CALIFONE remain vibrantly relevant through their uncompromisingly great song writing. The band and its music reaches new cohesion live and we are pleased to welcome them back for two shows today with heavy heartthrobs BLOODIEST. Featuring members of 90 DAY MEN, ATOMBOMBPOCKETKNIFE, STERLING, and YAKUZA - BLOODIEST continuously blow our minds and our eardrums with the menacing and malevolent classical and drone inspired metal found on their debut Descent, an album Trebuchet Magazine says will leave the listener "almost comatose. After returning to a normal state of mind a few minutes after the album has finished, uncurling from the fetal position on the floor you'll find yourself in if you have truly been listening, the only thing that will come to mind is simply, 'What the fuck was that?"
