Far-Out Fangtooth - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Far-Out Fangtooth
Philadelphia’s Far-Out Fangtooth have been meddling within their own poisonous cloud of murky, atmospheric noise for a while now, and after a stellar debut LP on Siltbreeze in 2011, and an amazing 3 song EP released on Hozac in 2012 they are set to release their follow-up LP "Borrowed Time" in 2013 .

Their solidly mid-tempo, gazey gait, braced with gothic flourishes of noise and carefully arranged explosions of angelic harmony are beautifully morose and radiant at the same time, combining the guit-architecture of Sonic Youth’s early primal scree with Circle Pit’s squalorous nuances and a surreal channeling of Syd Barrett to create a heavenly hypnotic, haunting haze. This is a band that seduces you when your guard is down, only to soar down and rip your heart out of your chest just at the moment when the rising tide of crashing noise hits you at full force, breaking any human down into their simplest parts.
K-Holes - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
K-Holes began in an inauspicious, unambitious way. The goal was to play one show as a dirge surf band and then call it a day. Everybody was involved in other bands (Golden Triangle, Bezoar, Georgiana Starlington). K-Holes was intended to be a big party with no strings attached. Somehow it stuck, though, as the big party with no strings attached lifestyle will sometimes do.

Through long nights holed-up in a concrete room, the surf was stripped away and the dirge remained. A saxophone replaced a guitar and the sewer gas sound was complete. All nighters staring at one another through a haze of smoke, Budwieser cans crashing like cymbals against the floor, two beat up drums throbbing along with a $100 bass and the confused rage of a low wage in the digital age. Everything fell apart over and over. Each hungover day felt like a new disaster. So many shows, so many practices brought humiliating failure. Yet, they couldn’t shake the green smoke of midnight’s dreams from their daytime thoughts. It has been said that to do the same thing over and over and expect different results is the height of folly. Well, if you had to choose between the height and folly and a lifetime of humiliation, tedium and Sisyphean struggle, what would your choice be?

Anyhow, K-Holes did the same thing over and over. In today’s New York City, barren as it is to those who are not born privileged, what else was there to do? New results came, the old adage was disproved, and this record was borne. They can still be found, making themselves sick with rage, beer and bewilderment in that concrete room, living at the height of folly. (Jack Hines)
Call Of The Wild - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Call Of The Wild
Brooklyn's Call of The Wild feature an ex-member of Awesome Color, but this trio is on an entirely different trip. The band plays a style of garage that borders on Metallica-style speed metal on their forthcoming Leave Your Leather On, as exhibited by the first single to appear from the record, "Autobahn" (no, not a Kraftwerk cover).
Hound - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
We are HOUND and we play ROCK & ROLL.
