Our Name is Legion//Our Projects are Many

Well, well, well, it seems I’ve returned to my own vizion, and with the same carni-barking hustle in tow.

Those of us living in the EV are often deeply contorted through a multitude of projects, and while I can’t speak for the total mass, I will say that Sean, Ian, and I are in the mires of productivity.

First, might I remind the creatures of the DMV that No Love Lost is happening once again this Sunday (8/21) at Velvet the Velvet Lounge:

In case you can’t read fliers, the details are:

No Love Lost
Sun 8/21
9pm-Close
21+
FREE
At
The Velvet Lounge
915 U St NW
Washington, DC

We even have one of those painfully nifty FB events for the digitally repaired…

This will be another NYC send off for Sean and I, but more on that later.

Don’t be prepared to retire just yet, as the record label Ian masterminds, Cricket Cemetery, is having its first showcase on Mon, 8/22. Not only that, but sir Ian will also be performing in his band Lions&Tigers&Whales,for which I also now sing. Don’t believe me? Here’s a rough rehearsal demo, recorded through a top of the line laptop:


Beyond that, AAA, and the Tender Thrill are also playing.

For the internet inclined, here again is an FB event. And for the rest of the world, the details are as follows:

Cricket Cemetery
SHOWCASE 8.22. 2011
9:00pm – 11:30pm
$5
Galaxy Hut
2711 Wilson Boulevard
Arlington, VA 22201

Incidentally, though Ian is always coursing through music projects, I could not be more excited for another band he’s conquering new territory with, Bitter American. It’s a new take on a throwback hardcore punk sound, (yeah, “hardcore punk,” that far back), in all the best ways possible. Their first release comes out on Cricket Cemetery soon, but in the meantime, burn your ears with this:

From there the storm only grows stronger as we find Sean and I moving the front back up to NY to spend another dark evening DJing at Wierd. Last time was an amazing experience, and we were ill-blessed by the sounds of Frank [Just Frank]. However, this time there is almost more a crackle of excitement as we join forces with Fan Death Records’ own Pleasure Leftists for an indescribable evening. If you’ve been trapped outside of the space time continuum, and are unfamiliar, Pleasure Leftists are like the reincarnation of some obscure, long lost Factory Band. It goes a little something like this:

Again, there is a handy FB event for the human impaired.

And so, in the spirit of no peace for the wicked, we march ever onward for the big finish of this round. Fan Death Records is also having a showcase in the next week. This one is the much hyped show at Mishka.

I’ll spare you the endless reams of frenzied excitement we’ve all been churning out about this, but I will let Mishka do a bit of the talking:
HERE

Again, there is a handy FB event.

But allow me to expound a bit.

Longtime, both Fan Death, and No Love Lost friends, Screen Vinyl Image will be coating the entire space with their rich aural webs.

Once again the aforementioned Pleasure Leftists will storm the planks in their frantically sour fashion.

But the black monolith of the entire event will be another elusive performance by the master of downtrodden synth pop: Puerto Rico Flowers.

It is physically impossible to have read any online music periodical and not know about the genius of this group. I myself have spent a substantial amount of time singing hymns of praise. In fact, shooting myself in foot a bit, I’d dare say, if you only attend one thing on this entire list, it should be seeing Puerto Rico Flowers, at all cost.


And from there friends, we retire back into the dark corners of the earth. But I assure you, it will not be for long. Join us, won’t you?
