Jayson Gerycz w/ Cloud Nothings in Chicago (more by Zach Pollack)
NYC's Spy Music Festival is returning next weekend (9/7-8) with
Thurston Moore, Ava Luna, Loren Connors and more, and they've just announced a pre-show happening on Friday, September 6 at Grand Victory with Swindlella and Colin L. Orchestra. Sticky Greg will be your host for the evening, and Shannon Cornett is DJing. Tickets for the pre-show are on sale now, and tickets for the festival are still available too.
UPDATE: Thurston Moore dropped off Spy Fest.
Swindlella is the "brutal noise band" of Cloud Nothings drummer Jayson Gerycz (also of Chomp and Total Babes) and Chris Brown (Jayson's bandmate in the latter two). For this show, Cloud Nothings frontman Dylan Baldi will be joining the band on saxophone.
Meanwhile, Dylan recently debuted an acoustic version of a new song, "Psychic Trauma" (working title), in Vienna. This, and the other new music they've previewed this year, will presumably appear on their upcoming "noisier" album, which is now due out in early 2014.
