Oneohtrix Point Never @ Coco66
Oneohtrix Point Never

There were several peculiar sights at the Oneohtrix Point Never performance on Friday night, but none more so than the handful of fans clustered near the front of the stage, nodding their heads rhythmically.

To what, exactly? Oneohtrix Point Never - a k a the ambient-noise musician Daniel Lopatin - generally forgoes percussion altogether, instead creating beautiful, glistening caverns of space that shift in sneaky, oceanic fashion. At once they're vast and also slippery. But something as pedestrian as a beat? Never that.

For this show, the back room at Coco 66, near the waterfront in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, was almost completely dark, punctured only by columnar white lights rotating on either side of Mr. Lopatin and by red and green pinpoint lasers, which strafed his face and the heads of those near the front of the room. There was smoke, too, or if there wasn't, there probably should have been. Everything was a haze. -[New York Times]

Oneohtrix Point Never headlined the show, presented by Last Friday and Visitation Rites, with Arp, James Ferraro, and Future Shuttle on 8/27. One half of duo Blondes (one of Stereogum's "Best New Bands") was responsible for DJing. The next show for Oneohtrix Point Never is Friday in San Francisco. Shortly after, the electronic/ambient artist will ship out to Latvia (!) before skipping across Europe.

And though Oneohtrix was headlining, it was Arp's record release show. The Soft Wave is out September 7th on Smalltown Supersound. Both free MP3s above are from that album. Full tracklisting below.

All tour dates and more photos from the show, and the afterparty (at Coco 68), are also below...

Arp killed it, great set. Too many hipsters that looked like Adam Goldberg from Dazed & Confused. I didn't even want to catch OPN's set because of it.

Did Ferraro have anything new for sale? He's been oddly quiet for a guy who usually has something new out once every 2 months.

you left a show because you didn't like somebody's hair? dude, I grew up in the South. I've stayed at shows where people were spitting on the floor, getting in fights, and dressed up like skinheads. There are bigger fish to fry and you're a whiny little fuck.

You should have stayed in the South son.

perhaps, but hipster hatred is super-passe, i mean really. don't whine because you don't have any style...

Perhaps...but we're not talking about some indie rock band here...it seemed like more people were there to be seen than to hear the music. And the style comment...please.

u aRE both fags having a swordfight.

I know who 3:02 is and can only expect that kind of a comment from him.... yes shows that are see and be seen events suck regardless of the music

FASHION people lets focus on fashion at a concert lets fuse fashion and music lets do it and rule the world style style style

to complain about image in nyc is quite childish. how come the comment section never actually comments on the music?
