APR 21: Control + Buildings (MPLS) + Tyranny Is Tyranny

Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

APR 21: Control + Buildings (MPLS) + Tyranny Is Tyranny

EARLY SHOW: Control + Buildings (MPLS) + Tyranny Is Tyranny

Sunday, April 21, 2013 6:00pm until 9:00pm $5
The Frequency 121 W. Main St., Madison, Wisconsin 53703 (608) 819-8777

Control: Still the best band in Madison. They lay out languid passages and ambiences but nearly always work themselves into a frenzy by the end of each song. Control is utterly unique, deftly tying together dub, noise, and math into mesmerizing guitar histrionics.

Buildings: On the surface, Minneapolis' Buildings is simply worshiping at the altar of Jesus Lizard and their disciples Young Widows. But upon closer inspection, they are churning out their own rather twisted take on noise rock with almost psychedelic overtones. Visceral and satisfying. http://buildingsband.bandcamp.com/

Tyranny Is Tyranny: Post-noiserock focusing on dynamics, repetition, and the dismantling of capitalism. Ex-USoT.

The Onion has this to say this about Buildings:

'We should all be talking about Minneapolis three-piece punk band Buildings more. At the rock ’n’ roll town hall meeting, first on our list of talking points would be how the band somehow seems to net together grunge, punk, and hardcore into one thrashing, streamlined, compact punch in the teeth, all the while simultaneously nodding throwbacks to bands like At The Drive-In, The Mars Volta, and even the Melvins. Our second point would be how Buildings have been packing that same punch in the teeth for longer than we could have guessed. Buildings’ Braille Animal, reissued in 2008 on label Doubleplusgood, is about as strong of a debut as any—and the follow-up, Melt Cry Sleep, is arguably even better. Songs like “Rainboat,” “Red Embassy,” and “Snake Charmers” teem with the kind of guttural energy that begs to be banged out on the stage.'
