Faces come out of the rain (when you’re strange)

Tonight, Saturday August 28th, 10pm, Roofless Records presents the fourth edition of our monthly flagship experimental music showcase, STRANGE DAYS. The name of the game is diversity, and the name of our headliners is actually the names of the individual performers. Alex Diaz (electronics), Eric Lopez-Zareno (saxophone and guitar) and Ed Wilcox (wipeout percussion) are known independently for their work as Xela Zaid, Teepee and Temple of Bon Matin. When the trio gets together they display their incredible prowess for group improvisation as they artfully wander through unpredictable free noise jams with heavy jazz undertones. A rare performance from a true supergroup! Check out this video of Diaz, Lopez-Zareno, & Wilcox at Churchill’s last September.

Making their Miami debut will be The Band In Heaven, a shoegaze duo with a forthcoming split tape with Surfer Blood side-project, Weird Wives (who, by the way, will be performing next Friday at The Guest Lab). Also performing: Peasants With Feathers, Otto Von Schirach‘s voodoo witch doctor playing “space music,” and 5,000 year old hip-hop collective, Dismas Gestas.

Background sound by: King Pubert, DJ Laz and DJ K-Hole, spinning 60s rock, 70s proto/punk, 80s new wave, 90s grunge & indie, Dead Milkmen remixes, local favorites and much more. As always, Bar = no cover / cheap drinks / no hassle.
