Zyanose at the Acheron, 2012 (more by Sarja Hasan)
INSANE NOISE RAIDAs discussed, NYC will host the 2014 edition of the New York's Alright on the weekend of April 17-20 in various venues. The schedule was recently posted, and among the shows attached to the festival is an "aftershow" at Acheron on April 18 that stars brutal Japanese punks Zyanose, along with La Misma, Aspects of War, & Life Chain. It's a late show, with a 10pm door time, and -- oddly, given the existence of a Ticketfly page for the show -- no advance tickets are on sale. That means that you'll have to book it if you want to get to the gig from the other New York's Alright show at LPR that night.
We make NOISE NOT MUSIC!!!!
Unsurprisingly, Zyanose have booked some other North American dates after their NYC appearance, but all of them are on the West Coast. If you live in the East and want to catch Zyanose on this round of dates, NYC is your only option. Check those dates and some Zyanose recorded work, below...
Back in 2011, it was announced that new Brooklyn venue The Wick would open in a former brewery at 260 Meserole St (next to the barely-open outdoor venue The Well), and that venue is finally set to open this March.
Four shows have been announced so far. The first is experimental Japanese musician Keiji Haino on March 27 before he heads to Tennessee for the Big Ears Festival. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Then, as discussed, The Wick is one of the venues that NYC's experimental music festival Unsound happens in. That fest will have Porter Ricks, Vladislav Delay, Miles, Leisure Muffin, Ital & Halal and Le Petit Garcon on April 5. Tickets are on sale now.
The Wick will also be one of the venues used for hardcore/punk fest New York's Alright. That includes the Dawn of Humans, Contingent, Blotter, Asile and Goosebumps show on April 17 (tickets) and the Hank Wood & the Hammerheads, DiE, Savageheads, The Impalers and Razorheads show on April 20 (tickets). The other NY's Alright shows happen at Le Poisson Rouge, Acheron, and ABC No Rio. Updated schedule below.
