Additional Information

XIU XIU was born on a dance floor, arriving alone at the club and going home alone from the club. That night the first XIU XIU song, Jennifer Lopez, was recorded. Its line, “is it tough to watch, Friday after Friday!?,” began what XIU XIU was going to try to say. The songs would always be about specific events in the personal lives of the band, the people close to them, and about the social and economic politics that effect and deform subjugated life from everywhere in this wobbling, wreck of a solar system.XIU XIU has never shied away from any topic that is honest and meaningful to them. Their songs are about gender dysphoria, suicide, loneliness, going insane, child soldiers, the tsunami in Indonesia, hideous sex, the Sanrio character Pandapple, abortion politics, incest, cats, queer life, being raped by the police and the individual responsibility of U.S. military personnel for the families they murder. Somehow within all of this, cuteness attempts to find a way to embrace death and horrible emotion. The music is drawn from British post punk and synth pop, modern Western classical, noise and experimental musics, Asian percussion musics, American folk, torch singers, house, techno, 1950s rock n roll and this second’s top 40.

We are thrilled to have FACS; the new project from Disappears members, Brian Case, Noah Leger, and Jonathan Van Herik, making their Empty Bottle debut tonight.
