ATTENTION METAL FRANCOPHILES! Alcest is from France. That’s where I’m going with this. Please allow me to apologize in advance, but I can’t think of a more apt term to descibe them than EPIC (anyone who uses this term IRL/unironically deserves to be hanged, drawn and quartered). It’s also very pretty. And heavy. And French.
Alcest – that is music from another world, a world that is real, but that exists beyond ours and cannot be grasped by our senses. A world where all appearances – trees, glades, streams – emit a pearly light and where a faraway and celestial music fills the air like sweet perfume. A world inhabited by infinitely benevolent and protective beings of light, communicating in a wordless ‘language’ directly from one soul to another. A world where the soul knows neither pain nor sickness nor sorrow, but is filled with a deep peace and an ineffable bliss. A world that lies ‘before’ and ‘after,’ ‘beside’ and ‘behind’ our world and the awareness of which stills mankind’s fears of death.
Mercurial Void and Brujas del Sol open.
8pm doors, 9pm show
$13 at the door
I’m not sure what you’re up to tonight, but if you like super totally bad ass live rock shows, then there’s no reason you shouldn’t be attending this show. I saw Priestess open for High on Fire last time they came through (which was the night I called 911 for the first time in my life because some chick fell through my glass coffee table and was bleeding from her back) and 2 things real quick-they slayed my brain and their albums don’t do their live show justice.
What I’m saying is if you like cool shit you should go to this show because Priestess will rock your socks off.
naam and LO-PAN open
8pm door, 9pm show
In case you didn’t know. Why wouldn’t you know High on Fire is playing. (dumb stoner) Also it’s Gallery Hop. Also Priestess open and killed it all at SXSW
Super secret super cool gallery show that you should go to first. Info after the jump. (it’s at Short North Tattoo)
The psych rock tour de force that is The Entrance Band brings its brand of dirty, loud psychedelia to The Summit on Wednesday night (yes, that’s A Perfect Circle’s Paz Lenchantin on the far right). Brooklyn band Lights(they make me think of a psychedelic School of Seven Bells) and local dudes Brainbow open.
The Entrance Band killed last time they were through. What else is there to do on a Wednesday night?
EARLY SHOW ALERT
The Entrance Band 11pm
