After a sellout forced a second show, Merzbow and Wold teamed up pair of appearances at Saint Vitus on June 4th. Both bands were on their way back from appearances in Tampa for Scion Rock Fest, their only other dates aside from these Saint Vitus shows. Pictures from both the early and late appearances are below.

Merzbow was not solo at the Saint Vitus show, as the Japanese noise artist was joined by drummer Balazs Pandi who provided the insane fills to help punctuate Merzbow's maddening atonal attack. Check out video of both Merzbow/Balazs Pandi's set and Wold's set below, along with both sets of pics.

Kinda felt ripped off by early show - only 40 minutes of Merzbow - crowd wanted an encore, seemed like he wanted to do it too but club said no and kicked everyone out. Hope the late show was more chill and longer...

late show was a notch shorter, but got a 4min encore, which in total matched the 45min of the first set. you did not get 'cheated' out of anything, 2:42. personally, I thought the set was way too long. Same old 'banjo' strumming throughout, not much progression if you don't count the mid set laptop noodling. Could have been condensed to 20 minutes easily without artistic loss. actually the set would have gained plenty in that department.

Oh my god Wold is ridiculous.

I'm disappointment I missed this but it seems like Merzbow comes to NY at least once every other year, so I'll see him next time! Last time I missed him when he was headlining No Fun Fest a few years ago. :(

The singer for Wold kinda looks like a sales associate from Z. Cavaricci circa 1988.

Does anyone know what Wold was doing with that little timer (or whatever it was) that he kept picking up and staring at repeatedly?

The timer is so they know when their Wiener schnitzels are done & to know when to hit the DOOM note.

And the fan on the oil drum is to cool off the oven for their sausages.

Yeah what was that thermostat/timer thing he kept looking at? And what was up with his talking to himself, and the wierd faces and poses? The dude looked really mental in a disturbing way. Made me not really want to watch them. interesting set, but really boring after a while.
