Dark pagan-fueled folk wrapped tight with outsider Americana, steeped in themes of love, death and redemption, KING DUDE released his prophetic and stark 2012 album Love on Dais Records this fall to widespread critical acclaim. Pulling together the biblical sound and isolation of the Northwest, the record’s bleakness is curbed by hope and salvation, drawing sound influence akin to DEATH IN JUNE and SOL INVICTUS while sewing together a hybrid of true folk tradition alongside WOODY GUTHRIE and JOHNNY CASH. Likened to the VU and SPACMEN 3, ENERGY GOWN follows the proto-motorik code for live performances churning up heady chants in extended experimentation. A strange take on the psychedelia, foggy fancy, and dark arts from discoveries made in a dim Chicago basement. Ghostly interstellar psych-pop soloist SPOOKY MOON returns to the stage tonight to deliver another stirring opening set.

    King Dude

    Pop

    Dark pagan-fueled folk wrapped tight with outsider Americana, steeped in themes of love, death and redemption. King Dude was initially projected forth using his Actual Pain vehicle for his metaphysical leaning and occultist tendencies. Reverent as it is prophetic and stark, King Dude has previously swooned audiences with releases on Avant!, Bathetic and Clan Destine, now his masterpiece album "Love" on Dais pulls together the biblical sound and isolation of the Northwest. Stepping forward alone, King Dude has now toured across America, as well as two highly successful European tours… An atmosphere filled with hope and salvation, drawing sound influence akin to Death In June & Sol Invictus but sewing together a hybrid of true folk tradition alongside Woody Guthrie and Johnny Cash.

  • Energy Gown

    Energy Gown

    Pop

    Hypno-cult faction formed Vernal Equinox 2012 on a mission to deliver both long-form minimalist harmonic haze and the boogie. Likened to the VU and Spacemen3, Energy Gown follows the proto-motorik code for live performances churning up heady chants in extended experimentation. A strange take on the psychedelia, foggy fancy, & dark arts from discoveries made in a dim Chicago basement.

  • Spooky Moon

    Spooky Moon

    Dance

    From the outer fringe of the ionosphere, where the ghostly remnants of long forgotten AM stations commingle with the blackness of space. Bathed in etherial green, looming, ominous. The dream of a thousand furious moths caressing your face. A night filled with dogs.
