Tonight we welcome back local electro poppers/psych-rockers LOYAL DIVIDE, celebrating the release of their debut LP, the old timey racy-named Bodice Ripper. The praise has already begun rolling in for these fine fellows, with the FADER postulating, “if all things have a time and space, then LOYAL DIVIDE’s is in the air, probably above Turkey, when you’re taking the long way to Japan from Chicago, say around 1973,” and MTV dubbing the outfit, “infectious.” Earlier this year LASERS AND FAST AND SHIT released Second, an engaging mixture of punk abandon with a healthy dose of stoner metal's nodding and self-knowing winks and they open here tonight with VERMA, who have been reigning over the psyche scene with their atmospheric, synth heavy, trance rock.

    Lasers and Fast and S**t

    Pop

    In simple terms, Lasers And Fast And Shit are an engaging mixture of punk abandon with a healthy dose of stoner metal's nodding and self-knowing winks. Their stage show is loud and raucous, typified by Joe Carsello leaning over a homemade light board to control the visuals with one hand while gripping a mic he's screaming into with the other. The Jesse Ewan's guitar and Eric Kratz's bass chug in lockstep while Mike Mizzola pounds out precise, clean, and thundering rhythms on his drum kit.

    Verma

    Alternative Rock

    Bent equally on bristling psychedelic squall and driving motorik, Verma emerged in the wake of an experimental improvisational collective. Blending a wide range of influences from proto-metal, minimalism, electronic, space rock and drone, the group constructs and explores cinematic sonic landscapes. Verma is amoebic in nature, coexisting with the mechanical. The driving rhythm section creates a solid architecture for swirling guitars and haunting vocal melodies, all beneath a haze of sweeping synthesizers. This repetitive dervish of sound rises from dark roots to a meditative plane, at once the atmosphere of metamorphosis and cerebral introspection.
