Festival season is upon us - and all the hurried overwhelming madness gets kicked off this Saturday at the CAID
This weekend, sample the outsider-experimental freak, funk punk and folk styling of the line up at Curare III, Saturday at the CAID: Oscillating Fan Club (pictured), Chicago’s Netherfriends (recommended), Pinkeye, Jehova’s Witness Protection Program, The Frustrations, Beekeepers, The Directions, Lenny Stoofy, 1964, Lightshow Bob – and finally – electro-punk-rocker Carjack and freight-train-trounce-rockers Wildcatting will form like Voltron to become ‘Carjacking’ – the normally synth/sampled/drum machine punk tunes of Carjack as interpreted through a full live rock band of guitar gods and a devastating drummer with Carjack on vocals.
When reached for comment, Mr. Carjack himself shrugged and quipped sarcastically, “Fuck a synthesizer…”
This should be both a sight to see and a sound to hear - as both of these bands are extremely distinct, even in their own genres of electro-punk and instrumental math-rock - so the mind reels at what the possibilities hold when they combine forces...
Check it out at the CAID, Saturday! Starting at 5pm and going through the early morning!
