Free Blood is John & Gorman from !!! & their friend doing m/f vocals over bass and beats and messed up old keyboard sounds - in white fur coats. booty shaking & awesome.
the Cave is this new space in LIC, right over the bridge from Brooklyn. it's in an ancient building's cellar (like 1870's style), with these rad old schist rock walls, and has this patio back yard with trees that looks out onto an abandoned rail revine from the original LIRR Montauk linethat went to the gantries @ Gantry State Park. it's pretty awesome & cozy & drinks are really stiff there.
see y'all out.

[ FREE BLOOD ] John XI Pugh & Gorman from !!! & their new super trashy bass and beats white fur funk outfit. Coed three piece, "bass, busted synth, male/female vocals. sound like Sexual Harrassment." - Lauren Podis
[ JAPANTHER ] two guys, bass, drums, tapes falling over awesomeness. the best dance band in New York. think: "Holiday Road" from the Natl Lampoon's Vacation soundtrack played super loud with equipment falling and shirts off and metal tapping bass riffs and totally soulful hip hop hardcore drumming and crazy samples and drum machine beats on old cassettes and singing along. *website: http://www.tapesrecords.com/secretsight.html
[ ZEKE HEALY ] Zeke also plays in the Boggs, an astoundingly great guitar player, bluegrass / Fahey like songs played super fast with a lot of soul and - right there under all the fingerpicking - a great ear for melodies. Zeke'll be playing outside and unamplified under the stars on the patio.
[ SLEEPY DOUG SHAW ] Doug is from the UK and plays really great bluesy folk guitar and sings, with touches of noise experimentalism, John Fahey moments. Doug'll play out unamplified on the patio.
[ PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ ] it ain't Taco. Big BJ Rubin (x Ferrari Testarossa) & Kevin The Shea (x Storm & Stress) play the standards. Sometimes dudes take their shirts off, be warned. drums and vocals and that's it.

1041 Manhattan Ave @ Freeman St | Greenpoint, Brooklyn G train to Greenpoint Ave | doors 8pm | $5 | 718.383.9699
[ X27 ] "X27 is currently a three-piece headed by the dynamic duo of Chicago legends Rikkeh Suhtn on Electric Guitar and Boy Voice and Carmen X on Bass and Girl Voice. In the mid-nineties Rikkeh led the Chicago No-Wave pioneers Duotron into explorations of microtonal and polyrhythmic pop music that blurred idiot with brilliance. In X27, Rikkeh re-creates the prehistoric haunted swamp feel of his childhood homeland in Mississippi with catchy pop hooks. Carmen's twisted vocals and Sub-sonic tidal waves on bass drown the screams of childhood ghosts and rips a gash in the human psyche. Instinct takes over, time is obsolete... past present and future become one. The members of X27 spew caveman mojo with screeching sound-these orgasmic blasts ripping thru metallic skies boasting futuristic electric fear. X27 put their listeners in a primordial genius state of mind where they're reduced to single cell ooze, dividing and splitting and dividing again with each splintering note. X27's brutal assault weeds out the weak and only the strongest survive. Fans will crawl away from the speakers battered, bruised and naked but more alive than ever before." - Narnack Records. Full length out on Narnack. *mp3: http://www.narnackrecords.com/mp3/nck7005.mp3 *press: http://www.indieville.com/reviews/x27.htm *images: http://x27labs.com/photos.htm
[ BREAKER! BREAKER! ] "The dirgy disco beat continues coursing through new indie circuitry like a spit-slicked finger jamming on a cracked electric socket. Case in point: Breaker! Breaker!, a lo-fi art punk band pairing vocals that crackle with forceful dance commanders and riot girl cheers, adding tinny synths that appear to be a couple clicks away from shooting sparks and guitars that churn on a spin cycle of effects. The Brooklyn band's debut on Velocidrecords sounds like it was recorded in stark basement warmed only by the body heat drummed up in the songs--so what B!B! lack in a more complicated, textured sound they make up for with an organic, excitable energy that paints the trio to be heroes of the DIY dancefloor. And sometimes that's all you need to get the party started." - Portland Mercury. full length out on Velocirecords *mp3: http://www.breakerbreaker.org/music.htm *press: http://www.almostcool.org/mr/b/b100mu.html *images: http://www.breakerbreaker.org/pictures.htm
[ DIRTY PROJECTORS ] Dirty Projectors is Mr. Dave Longstreth, 20, of New Haven, Connecticut - one time pop crooner now crooning over computerised experimental beats and sampled found sounds. The resulting trnsformation is familiar while all the while more textured and interesting than the straight on pop Dave used to produce. It's still chilling though, just more restrained and more mature, and way more out there. "Dwelling within the emotional ambiguities and contradictions that have always tortured the sensitive ones, the Dirty Projectors offer songs bursting with melodies that seem to have been sent from some beautiful and erratic netherworld. The songs surprise and deceive, constantly defying our expectations of emotional and musical resolution." - Western Vinyl. Dave has five full lengthy albums on as many labels. "This is scary, evocative music, like an Alan Lomax field recording of a dusty, punk troubadour from the imaginary past; Kid A covered under 80 years of dust and gloom, only exchange the robots and clones for forests and abandoned farmhouses. Dave Longstreth is making his own f***ed-up version of American music." - Dusted Magazine *mp3: http://www.westernvinyl.com/The%20Dirty%20Projectors%20-%20Track%2011.mp3 *mp3: http://www.statesrightsrecords.com/mp3s/The%20Dirty%20Projectors-Hazard%20Lights.mp3 *press: http://www.dustedmagazine.com/reviews/1012 *press: http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/d/dirty-projectors/glad-fact.shtml
[ THANKSGIVING ] Portland, OR's Adrian Orange has been playing shows since he was 10 years old, writing songs since before that, but do not take him for another Connor Oberst or Ben Lee or even a Dave Longstreth. With an almost possessed intensity, Adrian writes and sings songs with a healthy touch of morbidity and overwhelming passion, pared down to just downward strums on bar chords - stretched together by haunting lyrics that belie more meaning than his unpretentious delivery could lead you to believe. be not afraid - there's no emo here though, these are anthems. For comparison's sake, think a solo Young People, or an un-cynical Kurt Cobain, or an un-self-indulgent Will Oldham with restraint - who can sing. Completely uncliched intensity and sincerity that you will stand in awe over rather than wanting to roll your eyes, Adrian Orange is a rare singer and songwriter who effortlessly and uniquely sings and writes songs that sound nothing like a singer-songwriter. Full length on Phil Elverum's new label forthcoming. *mp3: http://www.thepoisondart.com/marriage/sound/now%20it%20is%20all%20over%20mp3.mp3 *mp3: http://www.thepoisondart.com/marriage/sound/before%20you%20died% 20mp3.mp3 *image: http://www.thepoisondart.com/marriage/images/tour1.jpg *image: http://www.thepoisondart.com/marriage/images/ao.JPG *press: http://www.adequacy.net/reviews/t/thanksgiving.shtml *press: http://www.inmusicwetrust.com/articles/61r57.html
