Tonight: Midday Veil, Warm Climate (LA), Hekate, Marcus Price
Los Angeles-based power trio Warm Climate play angular garage rock with a prog twist. Led by veteran experimental vocalist/guitarist Seth Kasselman, WC delivers surprisingly hooky pop gems with warped indie bravado, while drummer Caitlin Mitchell shreds like a mathematically-inclined wild animal. Bassist M. Geddes Gengras is a solo artist in his own right (check out his excellent new LP on Holy Mountain) and also plays synths with Sun Araw.
Here’s some video I shot of these guys at Human Resources Gallery when they played with Midday Veil in LA last month:
Seattle-based “femme-fatale stoner doom” outfit Hekate is led by Micaela Tobin of Thousand Statues and Ambrosia Bartosek of Moths. This will be my first time to see them live; based on the haunted, fractured incantations I’ve heard on Soundcloud, I’m looking forward to it!
Here’s another act I haven’t seen live yet. In fact, Marcus is just starting to play shows, although his Soundcloud page is full of psychedelic, minimalistic compositions forged in the crucible of his studio in Everett, WA.
Please note that this is an early show for the Rendezvous. Doors at 9 pm. See you tonight!
