Wolf Eyes @ Saint Vitus, 7/6/2013
Wolf Eyes

Antagonistic noise gang Wolf Eyes headlined a sold-out show at Saint Vitus on Saturday (7/6), joined by Hubble (Ben Greenberg, also of The Men), Foreplay (mem Warthog) and Soren (mem Rosenkopf) for a night of experimentalism and noise. Pictures from the show are in this post.

If you missed Saint Vitus, you can still get your Wolf Eyes fix by heading to Nothing Changes on Wednesday (July 10) when Nate Young (Wolf Eyes) hits Home Sweet Home for a late night appearance. The party will also host upcoming appearances from Bestial Mouths / Bootblacks on July 17th, La Urss / Sad Boys on July 24th and last but certainly not least, Lost Tribe / Anasazi on July 31st.

Wolf Eyes will again be back in NYC at Issue Project Room in late August as part on an ongoing celebration of their new LP No Answer: Lower Floors.

More pictures from a packed out (and superbly air-conditioned!) Saint Vitus on Saturday are below.

Jason Lescalleet

Hands down, the most intriguingly difficult album I encountered last year was Jason Lescalleet's massive double album, Songs About Nothing. The title and album cover was an obvious riff on Big Black's Songs About Fucking, as were some of the song titles (Big Black's "The Power of Independent Trucking" gave us Jason's "The Power of Pussy" and "The Beauty of Independent Music"). But while Big Black gave us abrasive in-your-face noise, Jason withheld, creating noise that slowly built up into one of those feedback sounds a singer's mic makes at a show and causes the whole crowd to yell "ahh!" and plug their ears. If it doesn't sound like a nice thing to listen, that's because it isn't. But there's something alluring about the record that after successfully scaring you away, eventually pulls you back in. You can stream three of its tracks below.

Jason will be in NYC for a show with a great lineup of fellow experimentalists, Wolf Eyes main man Nate Young, and two regulars on the NYC noise scene, Spencer Yeh Trio and Pharmakon. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

The 285 Kent is Jason Lescalleet's only show that we're currently aware of. Song streams below...

WIERD

On behalf of the Wierd World I wanted to let you all know that the last Wierd Party at Home Sweet Home will be on Wednesday, February 27th. We have staged 500+ events over the course of the last decade, and I feel we have achieved what we all set out to do together when the party began.

Needless to say, the idea of ending IT is a very complex proposition. For above all the one thing I have learned from the Wierd is that because 'IT' is Very Rare - IT does not exist, and as a result ending IT is impossible. VR.

We have built a thorough archive of the party's history with all the fliers and weekly Wierd emails which is now live and up to date, check it out here:

Thank you for your devoted, undying interest and support all these years. I hope you enjoy the last month in the Wierd, we have an incredible set of shows lined up for February. See you all soon once again in our wild latenight world of the fog and the lights.

All good things must come to an end and that, apparently, goes for WIERD things too. The long-running Wednesday party, which currently happens at LES club Home Sweet Home, will be hosting their final four nights this month. The final four schedule February 6 is Wolf Eyes' Nate Young w/ DJs Miz Margo and Frankie Teardrop; February 13 is Frank Alpine live w/ DJs Pre Op Trans, Hi Fi Hillary and Frankie Teardrop; February 20 plays host to Genesis Breyer P-Orridge with Aaron Dilloway plus DJs Anearexia, Tesco Jane, Frankie Teardrop; and the final night on February 27 is with WIERD vets Xeno & Oaklander w/ DJs Jeralyn, Glenn, Frankie Teardrop.

Don't get too sad, though. WIERD may well host events in the future, and the record label will continue. Still, it's an end of an era (troll the archives here), so do try to make it out to one of these last Home Sweet Home nights, say goodbye and dance amid the fog and cracked glitterball one last time. Flyer for the final shows is below.
