Mon Nov 3rd TIME GHOST & BERNARD HERMAN + + + @ Bunker Projects

By | events | No Comments

TIMEGHOST (Providence RI, Load Records)
Symbol-laden angular electronic meditation, synchronized to flickering lights and altered by prosthetic sensors. Sounds ranging from exotic minimalism to industrial pulverization.

BERNARD HERMAN (NYC)
Writhing soothsayer invoking characters who embody the aspects of Western civilization shrouded in shame and regret. Cold, digital synthesizers fed through a folk song structure and choreographed to video with automated stage lighting.

Week of October 19th: Blotter

By | blotter | No Comments

Looking at picking this back up as October is typically super busy and full of events. Being busy myself has put a hamper on knocking
these out every week. But here goes. Picks for what to get into this week:

TUESDAY

1015696_955262157834343_2104164614017425120_o

A once in a lifetime event for Steel City! Legendary Cold Meat Industry artists Brighter Death Now. Deutsch Nepal (Official) and Raison d’être (official) land on US shores. It’s a Swedish Invasion!

BRIGHTER DEATH NOW (Swe)
BDN is one of the single most influential industrial acts of the past two decades. Responsible for the coinage of the genre that is known as “death industrial”, Roger Karmanik — founder of the seminal record label COLD MEAT INDUSTRY — has provided the world with his own brand of cold, dismal and disgruntled power electronics/death industrial.

DEUTSCH NEPAL (Swe)
Herr Generalstaab Lina Baby Doll has been active as DEUTSCH NEPAL for more than two decades, having evolved over time into a sort of “industrial crooner”, standing at the front and belting out tribal anthems over martial rhythms. Cheers to the end!

raison d’être (Swe)
Peter Andersson stands as one of the most important artists working under the “dark ambient” monicker, crafting some of the genre’s most incredibly somber and emotionally charged work. Raison d’être is the sound of all hope nullified.

Requiem (US)
Pittsburgh native David Graham’s project Requiem has been active since the mid to late 90s, pulling in influences from all across the industrial board. Twisted and dense dark ambient industrial soundscapes.

Shock Frontier (US)
Pittsburgh and Ohio based dark ambient/death industrial released by Malignant Records. This will be their first official live performance. Music for a crumbling society and born from a hatred for the human animal.

7PM-12AM
$10 21+

Belvederes Ultra Dive 4104 Butler Street

WEDNESDAY

SCHWARZ is a true inspirational club king for the future. On the mic he exists in a place between Andrew WK and Fatman Scoop. On the internet his original tracks and remixes reinvent genres and transcend contexts. He has been featured in SPIN, FACT, NOISEY and more.

ABDU ALI is a musician who raps, sings, and chants over unorthodox beats that smash together influences from club, noise and rap to create a singular style that feels fresh and boundless. Abdu Ali’s musical force has pushed him to be a must-see performer, delivering riveting and cathartic shows. He has been featured in THE FADER, STEREOGUM, COMPLEX and more.

KILBOURNE is an emerging club producer whose frenetic tracks and remixes are constantly pushing the limit of the dance world. She has done mixes for THUMP and DIS, while also playing guitar in hardcore punk/grind band Pyka.
Together on tour Schwarz, Kilbourne, and Abdu Ali, are an enchanting and dynamic trio, showcasing as compelling symbols of the current state of DIY club, punk, and rap culture. BE MOTIVATED.

Everybody knows it’s easier to pull off that sexy shrimp costume with something substantial in your belly. And you need a steady hand to carve that heirloom pumpkin you spent $50 on, and you’re not going to have an easy time pulling that off after all that yellow 5 and sugar. Maybe you just need some fresh eyes on those neon cat whiskers you’re trying to pull off.
Either way, stop by for some wicked pho and fall pierogi- you can get a to-go in your pillowcase but we don’t recommend it.

$10 BUFFET
$10 TAKEOUT (5 pierogi + bowl of pho)

As always, all vegan.

Thu May 8th NOW IS WHY presents AVANT GARDE CORE w/ Statas, Speak Onion, Redhat, Liability and Tropic @ Gus’s

By | events | No Comments

Wanted to get ahead of this and post about this show that’s happening in a week or so. Last year 8C had Speak Onion and Redhat play at Kopecs, and it was quite a blast. These guys are keeping the DIY breakcore scene rolling in their respective cities of New York and Philadelphia, and have been pushing things with great dedication and skill. On top of that, they got our pal STATAS, formerly NODAL TERROR of 215NOISE to come out on the road with them. This is as solid a representation of east cost breakcore as you’ll probably see any time soon, so make sure to stop down for this night. Gus’s is a rad spot as well with decent gluten-free bar food, space to dance or chill and a good selection of beers. Nice to have this night (run by Jason / Mind Tiger) in regular rotation. – cutups

Week of March 9th 2014: Blotter

By | blotter, events | No Comments

Going to try this out as a feature.   A weekly blotter of goings on, events, happenings or observations, either personal or general.  Mostly “stuff to do”  in and around Pittsburgh, unless I’m out of town or something notable is going on elsewhere.

It’s finally *starting* to become spring-like in Pittsburgh, the weather is bearable, the sun is out, you can hear birds and that means a rash of shows will be on the horizon.

Wednesday

1622475_10152121559024792_864021085_o

A good lineup of noisy, experimental stuff.   Check the FB post for more details on all the acts.

Hardon Collider – Cincinnati glitchnoise

“Using homemade circuit-bent devices, Hardon Collider damages ears and hearts with an unrelenting storm of electronic bastardized sound. Playing numerous shows both local and abroad, Hardon Collider has cemented itself in time as being one of the greatest unknown endeavors in the history of man.”

They periodically do after (gallery) hours events at Wood Street downtown, typically with good listening oriented electronic music, possibly a keg and definitely BYOB.  And it’s free.   This is one of those.

Hot Mass is a weekly afterhours that mostly books house and techno, but has some specific crews curating certain monthly nights.   This week they’re bringing in a really excellent live PA from Italy, Voices from the Lake.  Plus sets from Humanaut crew members Aaron Clark and Relative Q.  Essential.
