Natur @ Public Assembly
Thrashy Brooklyn crew Natur headlined a mostly doom bill at Public Assembly on March 1st, featuring appearances from Richmond's Windhand, Providence's Pilgrim and Boston newcomers Magic Circle. The show, part of a larger tour for Natur & Pilgrim, was the first of a set of dates before both hit SXSW and a sort of celebration for Pilgrim's well-executed Misery Wizard LP.
For Magic Circle, which features members of Rival Mob, Boston Strangler, Innumerable Forms, Mind Eraser, and more, the Public Assembly date was their live debut. So far the band has nothing more than a demo to speak of, but we'll keep an eye out. In the meantime, keep on the lookout for Boston Strangler's debut LP Primitive (out now via Fun with Smack Records) and catch them live with Tragedy, Perdition & Sickoids. Tickets are on sale for this 5/12 show at Le Poisson Rouge.
