What’s This Called? w/ Holy Filament, Overdose The Katatonic & Death Pact Jazz Ensemble, LIVE!
(Featuring the usual What’s This Called? chicanery, plus live performances by Holy Filament, Overdose The Katatonic & the noise super-group, Death Pact Jazz Ensemble, in preparation for their show tonight at Habesha Lounge.)
Join Ricardo Wang and I as we squeeze an excellent DJ set – and three live performances – into a show that almost wasn’t, on kpsu.org. This week’s show couldn’t have happened without the stellar assistance of DJ Dirty Mollie of the Whitechappel Circus, for helping out with both the gear, and contacting staff members to help out in a pinch. This show was truly a group effort, and you will get to hear it all in this nearly two-hour set of fantastic radio.
Ricardo’s pre-game show, featuring all of Sun Ra’s Atlantis, was enough to put anyone in the mood, but not only was he able to fit in a fantastic DJ set, but live performances by two noise masters, and their super-group, Death Pact Jazz Ensemble. All three are performing tonight at Habesha Lounge for a noise show that features Abusive Consumer, and the legendary Dead Air Fresheners, featuring me, Austin Rich, delivering an actual Blasphuphmus sermon as part of the show. Both Holy Filament and Overdose The Katatonic have releases on Den Of Dead Trees Recordings, a label that specializes in experimental and avant-guard recording projects. Their split – Absolute Insult – is a tribute to their kind of forward-thinking soundscapes that alter as well as focus the mind.
If you like what you hear, come to the show! This promises to be a lot of fun. Personally, I’ve already had a great day working with these guys once today. Playing a show with them is going to be pretty fantastic.
See ya there.
