The Fall of Troy

Saturday, November 14
SA Harsh Noise & Power Electronics Fest

Imagine what Armageddon will sound like - all twisting metal, cacophonous explosions, grinding alloy and inhuman screams of pain and despair. People will run through the streets tearing out their hair. Some will throw themselves from the greatest of heights, surrendering to the thunderous belches and roars, the soundtrack of Oblivion, provided by "bands" with names like Swallowing Bile, Rape-X, Garbage Mask, Molestar, Aqua-Eroticum, Rancid Ejaculator and Pissthrone. !!!NOISE!!! This is working music. You work to enjoy it. You gotta give yourself to it. It sure as hell isn't the Eagles and it ain't even Sabbath; maybe if Tony Lommi had lost his whole hand and played with just a scabrous, sored and rotten pulpy nub, beating the strings of his guitar, tuned to drop-Z while Wild Bill took a shit on his snare drum looking for the brown note and Geezer and Ozzy drank piss to the point of poisoning, puked into a mic, looped it and played it backwards. Noise, mama, NOISE!!!!! $9, 4pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N St Mary's St.
