BXI
BXI

ATP NY have a plethora of exclusives upstate in early September, and now they're bringing one to NYC. On September 7th, The Blackened Music Series and ATP will combine forces for a show at Brooklyn Masonic Temple where sunn o))) & Boris will perform Altar in its entirety (a NYC first) and BXI will make their US debut! The melancholic and heart-wrenching Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter will sweeten the deal/provide awesome contrast for the rage. Tickets are on sale.

The show is one day before Sleep smokes out the same venue with Lichens and the newly added A Storm of Light (tickets still on sale for that too)...

As previously discussed, BXI is the collaboration of Boris and Ian Astbury (The Cult) who will release their debut EP in September via Southern Lord. The four song EP will feature three new tracks, as well as a cover of The Cult's "Rain". Dig on the EP cover, as well as a video of BXI in action (performing The Door's "The End") in Sydney Australia below.

Reminder, Boris plays MHOW on August 6 with Torche and Russian Circles (the day after UNSANE/Keelhaul at Santos!). Tickets are on sale.

@ 10:48 - I'm excited too, but do even know what monolithic means? Yah, didn't think so.

where does it say they start at midnight?

The last time Sunno))) played here midway through the show the crowd looked either bored out of their mind or half-asleep. Think I'll skip this one.

yes... LA show pls!

Great bands, but I am not a fan of the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. The space itself is nice with a good mix of general admission floor and wrap around balcony, but the sound is terrible. Too muddy, no definition. I have seen two shows there, and no matter where I stood (or sat), the sound was awful.

finally some news about the Cult instead of that shite band Cults

I love that I can see three of my favorite bands two days in a row three blocks from my house. Brooklyn fucking rules.

@11:52- I love the posters too but they never sell and there's always tons left over.

Bring a pillow and a book and some toothpicks to keep your eyelids propped open

1:21 - Really? I love the Blackened series posters... wanted one of the last Sunn show really bad and wasn't able to get one.

Can you bring cameras to shows at this venue?

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2010 10:27 AM

Yes 10:27am but I doubt you'll get any decent pics since it'll be full of smokes and what not!

Posted by Anon | September 7, 2010 10:35 AM

That's why I'm bringing my camera!

Anyone know the set times?

Posted by venision | September 7, 2010 12:42 PM

With 12:42...
Does anyone have an average start/end time of shows at the Masonic Temple? I'm coming up from Philly and trying to figure this stuff out.
