MOVING UNITS have been kindly forcing people into fits of dancing with the power of their Italo-disco meets SONIC YOUTH fusion of dance punk since 2001. Formed in Los Angeles during the “dance-punk” heyday, this marks the third time they’ve ventured all the way from California to play our stage...and this time, it's a super special performance. MOVING UNITS will perform the best songs of English post-punk heroes JOY DIVISION. The band will also play a couple of selects from their new LP, Damage With Care, as well as classic MOVING UNITS material. VIKTOR FICTION is the new band / alter ego of veteran production impresario Dave Trumfio, the man behind the board for a vast group of artist that have included The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Rentals, Sia, Wilco, Grandaddy, My Morning Jacket, Ok Go, Mekons, Alternative TV and Built To Spill to only name a few. Trumfio was also the frontman and songwriter for 90’s New Wave revivalist Pulsars. SOVIET arose from the NYC electroclash scene in the early 2000s. Their first album We Are Eyes, We Are Builders fused humanemotions with embellished melodies, luscious synths, and austere beats. SOVIET embraced the pure remnants of the 80s and made them their own. The new record Ghosts is a return to their humble beginnings.
