Blue Sabbath Black Cheer

New York City is always an oppressively noisy place, but the atmosphere here becomes that much more grating in December. Not only do holiday shopping and travel planning put the populace on edge, but the most odious form of music in existence -- secular Christmas music -- blares from seemingly every available loudspeaker. Subway conductors who engage in this practice are obviously sadistic psychopaths.

If you need a respite from all the Plasticine cheer (if not from the noise) next weekend, this show should do the trick: Seattle noise/drone duo (and sometimes trio) Blue Sabbath Black Cheer are playing the Acheron on Friday the 13th, with a host of local & regional dark noise units in support: Whorid, Compactor, Existence in Decline, and I Say Fuck, several of which have ties to Theologian and Annihilvs Power Electronix.

You can't beat a good descriptive aphorism, and Blue Sabbath Black Cheer have one: "Sounds like Sunn O))) committing suicide." Tickets are available now. A similar lineup will appear in Providence the following night.

Get in the spirit of the season by streaming "music" by Blue Sabbath Black Cheer and some of the supporting acts below...

"Sounds like Sunn O))) committing suicide."

That's a pretty big statement. Almost too big for me to believe.

Is there a better band out? I think NOT

I am very open to this; however, these acts just do not provide anything interesting and unique to this genre, which really needs some innovation. A real kick in the butt.

Knock, Knock...
Who's there???
