The end of September in our fine city of charm is shaping up to be pretty stacked show-wise, including a much anticipated appearance from Northwest droners Sunn O))).
Greg Anderson and Stephen O'Malley are bringing their ambient noise metal dominance to Sonar on September 23rd. The duo has been at the peak of their genre for over a decade, and the punishing volume of their live act is nothing to overlook.
Sunn O)))'s most recent LP, Monoliths & Dimensions, is further proof of the band's mastery of grandiose horror. Aural nightmare bliss at it's absolute finest.
Gathering various other experts of drone, this one capitalizes on the use of bass and guitar and adds some horns into the mix. "Alice" is a look into new territory, a terrifyingly beautiful closing track that utilizes a small orchestra to create some of the most elegant noise to be heard all summer.
Clearly this one's a must see, and I've got a pair of tickets to give away courtesy of Sonar. Send something scary to firstname.lastname@example.org, and consider yourself entered. I'll pick a winner a few nights before the show, so check inboxes then. The show starts at 8 PM, and tickets are $15 in advance, $17 at the door.
