Taiwan Housing Project is a Philadelphia based group featuring Kilynn Lundsford, of Little Claw, Mark Feehan, of Harry Pussy, Kevin Nickels of Writhing Squares, Kevin Boyer of Tyvek, along with Adam Neung and Pat Ganley who also play with Dan Mechior on occasion. The band was started by Kilynn and Mark back in 2013 and it just keeps getting bigger - along with the decibel levels. Last fall saw the release of their debut 7" record and they are currently finishing up their full length record album to be released early next year.
ESCAPE-ISM - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
ESCAPE-ISM is a found-sound dream-drama starring Ian
Svenonius, singer (Chain & the Gang, The Make-Up, Weird
War, etc), author (‘The Psychic Soviet,’ ‘Supernatural
Strategies for Making a Rock ’n’ Roll Group,’ ‘Censorship
Now!!’), talk show host (Soft Focus), experimental
filmmaker (‘Launching of the Dream Weapon,’ ‘What is a
Group?,’ ‘The Seduction of Paolo Hewitt’), and public
ESCAPE-ISM is “live collage” with a beat box, a ritual
offering to the fractured landscape of AM radio. It features
original performances of songs, game-time sportcasts, eyein-the-sky
traffic reports, doppler radar weather forecasts,
live interviews, sermons, world news and opinion, guest
appearances, electric guitars, drum machine, electromagnetic
tapes, fuzz box, sickening sounds, and stolen
samples. Critics have been unanimous in saying “I didn’t see
anything; I mind my own business. Listen, I don’t want any
ESCAPE-ISM originally was designed as a live performance
to accompany the book tour promoting Svenonius’
“Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock ’n’ Roll
Group”(2013 Akashic) but has since mutated, devolved, and
is now sought out to play rock ’n’ roll gigs, art openings,
shindigs, conventions, and the like.
Igneous Eyes - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
