FEB. 26: DOPE BODY + GUARDIAN ALIEN + CHAT LOGS +TOM BLACKLUNG + LUSHES + SLONK DONKERSON @ 285 KENT
Chat Logs, a hyper-visceral noise punk trio from Brooklyn, NY, will be headlining a powerhouse lineup at 285 Kent, an underground DIY warehouse on what has become a prominent strip for Brooklyn music venues. This will be their first performance in the space. The band has been curiously alienating the tame Brooklyn scene for some time, most recently packing venues such as Secret Project Robot, Shea Stadium, Death By Audio, and Big Snow Buffalo Lodge, all the way down to the Rockaway waterfront at the Low Tide Bar.
From their habit of dousing the crowd in a cloud of baby powder to finger-pointing, miniature instruments, and oft-naked bodies, one never knows what to expect from the band whose first live performance was at the Whitney Museum of Fine Art. The band's recent performance installation at Southfirst Gallery, Dark Side of the Room, brought to life a butcher's nightmare: musicians costumed as pigs, all melting away amongst animal carcasses in a slaughterhouse. You will want to move your feet; there will be a wall of sound. The perfect soundtrack for your pity party.
285 Kent is an all ages venue on Kent Ave and South 1st. It is accessible via the Bedford Ave L, the G at Metropolitan and the Marcy Ave JMZ, show starts at 8pm, Chat Logs is scheduled to play around midnight.
And here are a bunch o' URLs… Yeah!
