Eagle Twin
Eagle Twin

As members of a secretive brotherhood, Freemasons are no strangers to conspiracy theories. They've heard it all before: that they're child-sacrificing cult members, or religious zealots plotting a New World Order with the Jews, or satanic anti-religious alien spies.

With Dan Brown's newest novel, "The Lost Symbol," hitting bookstores on Sept. 15--much of it rumored to center around Masonic myths--the Masons are in preemptive damage-control mode. [Religion News]

Now that Dan Brown wrote a book on the Masons, it's safe to say that mom, dad, grandma, and my 14 year old cousin will probably know a thing or two about the secret society. Thankfully, Southern Lord will cast a little darkness back upon the Brooklyn Masonic Temple when the label hosts an absolutely mind-bottling lineup of sunn O))), Earth, Pelican, and Eagle Twin on 9/22 as part of The Blackened Music Series. Tickets are still available, though if you're lucky, you can WIN A PAIR as well as a copy of sunn O)))'s Domkirke 2xLP! Just email us at BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM with the subject line of "pronounced sunn not sunno" (include your first and last name).

The Blackened Music series is also responsible for Nadja and Mick Barr, which takes place on Saturday at Union Pool (9/19). Tickets are on sale.

Great show. Eagle twin had a good set and Sunn O))) absolutely destroyed. I can't imagine it was easy to get pics with the incredibly thick smoke, though.

earth were amazing but three songs from "bees made honey" is hardly a set.

my body feels like jello from sunn's 2 hour sonic assault.

the last song they played was actually a new jam. i think they definitely wanted to play one more but because Sunn had to make us wait 40 minutes in the fog they couldn't play more. Sunn destroyed though...best Sunn I've ever seen. Anyone have pics???

2 hours? Damn! I had to split by 2am and they were still slaying.

You listened to 2 hrs of distorted power chord reverb under a veil of thick smoke and enjoyed it?

It was probably an hour and forty minutes. Great set...amazing vocals and costumes from Attila, really nice extra musical touches from Oren Ambarchi (I think) on synths, etc. All around the best Sunn show I could imagine.

Attila Csihar and the band absolutely destroyed. To people, for some reason, have nothing better to do than criticize tis band : If you don't like/get Sunn O)))'s music, fine, just shut the fuck up about it. People said the same thing about jazz when it first started "It's boring/not music". *yawn*.
