 SATURDAY April 30 TOMORROW!

 DAWN OF MAN
 
 ++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 Warehouse Next Door

 The APES "Baba's Mountain" full-length has arrived at last out on Birdman Records.

 ++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 Before Comets on Fire discovered the secret to turning sludge into gold, a number of equally talented bands were hard at work on a similar sort of alchemy. The unique presence of Washington DC's The Apes removes the band far enough from the realms of the regular to earn a place on the same shelf as household names like Royal Trux (well, at least among Dusted's households). Their label
 explains: "They compose songs around drawings they make and compose drawings around stories they imagine, stories that would burn green into the eyes of Philip K Dick, Jorge Luis Borges, and Ray Bradbury." The Apes have choogled their way through releases on Planaria and French Kiss records, and their latest album, Baba Mountain, was released by the venerable Birdman imprint. The Apes will be on tour of the US very soon.

Wednesday, May 4
 $6, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9:15
 
 Psychic Paramount (Public Guilt Rec., ex-Laddio Bolocko/Panicsville)
 Jenna & Barbara Bush (ex-Shortstack/Tuohy/Ruby Dare)
 Trephine (Public Guilt Rec., heavy math/prog rock from MD)
 
 Psychic Paramount
 
 The best part of a band breakup is the aftermath ‚?? - the spilling-over of the former unit's now factionalized guts. Of course, this kind of rock postmortem is available to the general public only when the former band becomes two or three or four new ones. For Laddio Bolocko the split was even: Marcus DeGrazia and Blake Fleming became part of Electric Turn to Me; Drew St. Ivany and Ben Armstrong found a drummer and played as the Psychic Paramount. Though Fleming's tight, complex drumming is enough to almost make any band, Electric Turn to Me did not get the better part of this deal. The Psychic Paramount's noisy, churning rock more readily recalls Laddio Bolocko's best moments -‚?? and might even indicate who was behind that band after all. (Mike Kanin, Washington City Paper)
 
 The Psychic Paramount features Drew St.Ivany (guitar) and Ben Armstrong (bass) both ex-Laddio Bolocko¬ļ (NYC). Jeff Conaway (drums) also plays in Sabers* (NYC).
 
 The group formed just five days before a scheduled tour of France and Italy in Nov./Dec. 2002 with original drummer Tatsuya Nakatani, prominently a free music improviser from NYC. The music and performances of the tour were often chaotic and unpredictable lent by a sense of urgency and chance elements. Some of these were documented resulting in the Live 2002: Franco-Italian Tour CD which captures the birth of the group in raw, immediate form. A film of this period (Live in Rome) shot by Aran Tharp is also available on the website.
 
 After touring the U.S. in 2004, The Psychic Paramount recorded sessions for a new CD on No Quarter titled Gamelan Into the Mink Supernatural, the first official studio release by the group. The disc features new drummer Jeff Conaway and also contains a short film shot during the recent tour on super8 by Aran Tharp.  A new 7‚?Ě picture disc will also be released in Feb. 2005 on the label Implied Sound (Baltimore).
 
 The double CD set Origins & Primitives vol.1+2 will be released on No Quarter in early April 2005. A collection of diverse musical settings, the set draws directly on the automatic method of composition to emphasize first impressions.
 
 The Psychic Paramount will be performing on the east coast U.S. in May 2005. European dates also in the works for later this year.  
 
 Trephine
 
 "Trephine is a heavy prog band...they have a dark and threatening sound, not dissimilar to Anekdoten or Red-era Crimson. To add to the musical dexterity on offer, and to inch up the psychotic meter a tad, they add some film samples...they have a super-over-the-top stage presentation, wearing bizarre masks and the like." (Ray Dorsey - Chaos Realm)
 
 "Imagine if Skeleton Key and Slayer had a love child who couldn`t speak...then you would be getting a close approximation of what this super heavy Baltimore band sounds like. Lots of metal served up with a heaping slab of extra percussion...oxygen tanks, metal, cans, etc. Heavy with a capital H."

TONIGHT!
 
 Tuesday, May 10
 Warehouse Next Door
 www.warehousenextdoor.com
 1021 7th St NW
 $7, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 
 SIGHTINGS (NYC, Load Records noise rock!)
 MICHAEL COLUMBIA (ex-Bablicon/Olivia Tremor Control/Need New Body!)
 OVO (noise duo from Italy!)
 MR NATURAL (crazy one-man band from Nashville!)
 
 SIGHTINGS
 Never before has a band managed to erase themselves. New York City's SIGHTINGS have risen to the challenge of negation with this "what the fuck" of a record that rolls the twenty sided dice to dematerialize any trace of guitar, bass and drums into proton dust floating microns on top of the speaker cone. Minimal, yes. Previous records have gone from favorites at magazines as chocolate and peanut butter as the Wire and Terrorizer. Past records have been steaming knee burn befuddled by German technoid impulse and Yoko-damaged Beatles-busting intensity. A new icy coolness is added to the steaming soup this time allowing the sounds of mouth breathing to open up the record into a drug-fueled nightclub beast humping a bass bin as the sun rises.
 
 MICHAEL COLUMBIA
 http://www.galapagos4.com/mc/mchome.htm
 Veterans of the experimental indie-rock triangle of Chicago, Philly and Athens, the duo of David McDonnell, of Bablicon (Misra Records), Olivia Tremor Control (Elephant 6) and Need New Body (File 13), and Dylan Ryan, of Icey Demons (Cloud Recordings) and Orso (Perishable) came together to experiment with a new combination of sounds and beats. Through the filtered bass tones weaving in and around, synths, saxophone, clarinet, violin and delay, synthetic ambient vocals sinuously drone over pressurized machine crushing beats. Sonic payoffs build up, floating in and out of Michael Columbia‚??s heavy low end foundations and orchestral textures. Imagine you‚??re in Lee Perry‚??s studio with a robot clone of Don Henley who‚??s been raised on Kraftwerk, that almost sums up MC‚??s sound. These are Colored Bars gets to the core of electronic rock through heavy seductive drumming topped off with spaced-out vocal hand horn textures. Michael Columbia takes you from the streets of Chicago into the far reaches of space. One minute you're in the soundtrack to Blade Runner, the next you're driving underneath tracks racing trains, keeping pace with some classic power rock. Only a city like this could spawn such a moody, humorous and danceable album....
 
 OVO
 http://www.barlamuerte.com/bands/ovo/
 OVO is a project of music and life. OVO are Stefania Pedretti (also singer and guitar player of Allun) and Bruno Dorella (ex-Wolfango, Bugo, Lava, now involved in many bands and boss of Bar La Muerte records), often joined by friends that belong to many different musical scenes. Bruno and Stefania basically started this project to stay together: they were used to following their partner's different bands on tour, but they were also sick of the problems that every band has connected with the members' lives, works, studies. It was natural for them to form an open but autonomous duo, free to tour and record with or without the collaboration of other musicians. A lifestyle project, the last frontier of DIY, or the maximum freedom level. The big number of gigs played by OVO in their brief existence testifies about it. The spirit is: play everywhere, with no particular technical or economical requests, just for the pleasure of playing music. We'd like to keep OVO, if not outside the market rules, at least very free inside of them.
 
 The recoring of their first CD Assassine needed four different sessions, one for each guest musician, each one consisting in about one hour of free improv, methodic destructuration, no wave remembrances. They choose the craziest and most surprising tracks, no overdubs (all the sessions were recorded on DAT).
 
 MR NATURAL
 A Nashville one-man band who uses contact microphones, guitar pickups, and the surfaces of objects to create what could appropriately be called sound explorations. His approach shares a kinship with a totally different group of musicians, among them San Francisco's Loren Chasse and the UK's Jonathan Coleclough, who electronically process field recordings to create pieces that can be at once gentle and disorienting.

Tomorrow! Saturday, May 14
 Warehouse Next Door
 $7, all ages
 doors at 9, show at 9:30
 liquor license is back!
 
 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 GRAVES BROTHERS DELUXE (x-Thin White Rope and SubArachnoid Space)
 JANA HUNTER (split with Devendra Banhart coming soon on TMU)
 SEMAPHORE (from DC)
 HALTON MOOR (featuring Andy Olmstead, Jennifer Potter, Karie Reinertson)
 
 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 GRAVES BROTHERS DELUXE (from SF)
 www.gravesbrothers.com
 Members of Thin White Rope and SubArachnoid Space. The Brothers alternate between noise-scapey garage-pop and dark parlor music, drawing comparisons from SONIC YOUTH to CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL to THE STOOGES to SUN RA. ‚??Art-Fag Garage,‚?Ě if you will.  
 
 JANA HUNTER (from NY)
 www.janahunter.tk
 False heresy, the good mischief, acoustiks and ghosts cracking up in church haunt a small, shy person with glasses. She's been making and selling (at shows/record stores) her own CD-Rs for 6 or 7 years. For a short time, she sang and wrote for a band from Houston, Texas, called Matty & Mossy that released a CD (Fraimers Haimey) on Fleece Records. In 2004, her song "Farm, CA." was
 included in the "Golden Apples of the Sun" CD compiled by Devendra Banhart for Arthur Magazine's Bastet label. A live version of her song "The New Sane Scramble" will be released on Spleen's compilation "The Black and White Skins" for Les Disque Du Crespuscule (France). In the spring/summer of 2005, Troubleman Unlimited will release a Jana Hunter and Devendra Banhart split LP. Hunter is currently maxing in Brooklyn.
 
 "Jana Hunter is back in town. These days she's doing a solo thing, just her, a guitar, and a Mini-Disc full of backing tracks -- it doesn't sound like much, maybe, but it's absolutely mind-blowing. The songs are as creepy and
 kind-of-sort-of menacing as Matty & Mossy's could be, but Hunter's expanded her musical palette somewhat, breaking out of the prog-blues-rock of her old band and dabbling with electronics and even pretty pop. The voice, of course, is still the same, and that's what really makes the whole thing work -- on top of some amazing songwriting, she does the most incredible impersonation of a
 down-on-her-luck '40s blues diva trapped in the body of a shy, kinda geeky girl. Hunter looks a little strange sometimes up there on stage, but as soon as she opens her mouth, everybody in the room is absolutely transfixed. I swear, she's got that crazy Chan Marshall/Beth Gibbons magnetism...come to think of it, Beth Gibbons' own recent post-Portishead effort, "Out Of Season," is probably the closest thing to Jana Hunter's solo stuff. Will she keep doing her thing? Hell, I dunno...anybody know if she's recorded anything? I certainly hope so -- but just in case, I'd go see her at the first chance you get." (Space City Rock)

 I'm out of town on Sunday, alas, but I've seen Two if By Sea and they're good.  And I've heard a lot about the Cassettes -- a favorite local band of many folks around these parts...  I would definitely go to this show if I were here.
Originally the Cassettes were scheduled to go on last but for some reason they decided that they wanted to go third. So the line up was Pile of Face (who were okay), Bang! Bang!, The Cassettes, Two If By Sea.
 
 I didn't stay late enough to see Two If By Sea, and I hope I do get to see them soon. But the Cassettes did not impress me at all, especially playing right after Bang! Bang! who were great. They sound like a more punk or garage version of the B52s. They just rocked the place and really got a lot of people dancing.
 
 By the way Snailhook, you should encourage the bands to post something on MySpace- when I was deciding if I wanted to go I listened to clips for Bang! Bang! and Two If By Sea on MySpace and it made the decision for me. It really helps for bands that are not from this area.

Agreed on all counts. Bang! Bang! was tons-o-fun.  I really wanted to like The Cassettes, but I was a bit disappointed by their set.  A bit too wacky for me.  Two If By Sea were terrific.  They had everyone in the room dancing before they were done.  I'll definitely check them out again.  I missed the first band.
 
 The Cassettes mentioned that we were lucky to see one of their final shows. I'm not sure if "lucky" is the word I'd use, but if you wanna see them, you'd better do it soon.

Wednesday, May 25
 $7, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 
 Meatjack (Baltimore proggy noise-rock on At A Loss Rec.)
 Weedeater (Wilmington NC heavy-ass swampy sludge metal)
 Mouth of the Architect (epic, atmospheric post-hardcore from Ohio)
 GreatDayForUp (classic stoner rock from Albany NY)
 
 Meatjack
 
 Founded by brothers Brian and Jason Daniloski, this hardworking, Baltimore, MD-based band has been constantly releasing material and touring since 1993. After a deluge of releases on 7-inch vinyl and compilations, MEATJACK found a home with At A Loss Recordings in 1999 and released their first full length CD, Trust. A split CD and 10-inch vinyl record with Prank Records artists Damad followed in 2000. Also in 2000, infamous filmmaker John Waters used the MEATJACK song "Upstart" in his motion picture "Cecil B. Demented"; the song appeared on the soundtrack along with songs by The Locust, Moby, and Liberace (no kidding!!!).
 
 In Spring 2003, MEATJACK proudly welcomed their new drummer, Charlie Baum, and the group is now working harder than ever. In addition to releasing their new full length CD Days of Fire in the fall of 2003, the band's current plans are to tour extensively and continue to record. Days of Fire is MEATJACK's most fully realized release to date. Listeners encounter the band melding a well-crafted melodic sensibility with their traditional storm of sonic pummeling. Dense and multi-layered, the 10 new songs invoke a rollercoaster ride of aural energy, ranging from the all-out riff-rock of "Sleep," to the dark and foreboding title track, from the III-era Zeppelin-esque acoustic instrumental "Blue" and the manic ".45" to the ethereal monolith that is "Crawl." Renowned artist Stephen Kasner provides his otherworldly art as the perfect compliment to MEATJACK's music.
 
 Weedeater
 
 Fronted by Dave "Dixie" Collins, WEEDEATER first came to prominence by way of Collins' term of duty with the mayhemic BUZZOV*EN. When BUZZOV*EN ran out of steam in 1998, Collins was freed up to concentrate on WEEDEATER, an act that had actually been gigging for some five years previous. Billy Anderson would produce the debut And Justice For Y'All album for Game Two/Berserker Records in 2000, included on which was a radical re-work of CROSBY, STILLS & NASH's "Southern Cross." The sophomore effort, once again produced by Billy Anderson and provisionally entitled Beezlebubba but emerging as Sixteen Tons, was delivered in March of 2002 and released on Berserker/Crucial Blast. Sixteen Tons remains a classic landmark in the sludgecore/doom/crust underground based on its unrelenting heaviness and southern swagger.
 
 Mouth of the Architect
 
 It‚??s definitely a triumph when a band can keep the attention of someone who possesses a near-ADHD attention span (like myself) with songs that haughtily surpass and defecate on the ten-minute mark. There has to be something special about any band that can keep me -- a person who rises suspicion in speed enforcement cops and border guards the world over due to an inability to keep my eyes from darting to-and-fro while in conversation -- fist-banging like a drunken Slayer fan, foot-stomping like the hillbillies in "Deliverance," and mouthing lyrics like that lazy-eyed kid in your English class who read everything while moving his lips. For Ohio‚??s Mouth of the Architecture, the cure for what ails as they rumble along with three epic-length tracks -- plus the five underdeveloped minutes that make up ‚??Heart Eaters‚?Ě -- that are eerie and airy, yet of crushing capacity and Herculean proportions. Taking a page from the dog-eared textbook of Neurosis, Godflesh and Isis‚?? monumental Oceanic album, MotA hypnotically entice the listener into ‚??A Vivid Chaos‚?Ě and ‚??The Worm‚?Ě with teasing melodies and deceptively catchy, Ennio Morricone-affected sounds before crashing down with orchestrated guitars that wrangle moods, strangle emotions, and crush like the pneumatic press that killed Governor Schwarzenegger in the first Terminator movie. Their sound is as equally warm and inviting as it is ballistic and unrelenting and they make the most with the space and time they give themselves to build, layer, pillage, kill, and destroy before starting the process all over again. Fuck Ritalin when you‚??ve got Mouth of the Architect. (Kevin Stewart - Decibel Magazine)
 
 GreatDayForUp
 
 ‚??Dude, Curve‚??s new band is fuckin‚?? indie rock, man. You believe that?‚?Ě
 
 This is what I‚??ve been told about half a dozen times in the past cuppla months from various and sundry Boston rocker, so it was with at least a twinge of dread when I popped this fucker in. See, for years now, Curve of the Earth records has been ground zero for Boston‚??s kill-for-thrills hard rock bands -- they were home to Crash and Burn, Rock City Crimewave, Lamont, Half Cocked and Cracktorch, for Crissakes -- so I was more n‚?? a little surprised to hear that they‚??d signed an indie rock band. I still am, really, but just ask Josh Todd -- nobody‚??s paying the bills with sleazy, heavy-ass rock and roll these days. Well, the proof of the pudding is that GDFU ain‚??t really indie rock in any world ‚??cept for Sleazegrinder‚??s, so rest easy. ‚??GLAS‚?Ě is rife with churning Queens of the Stoneage-y groove riffs and pounding drums (same kinda Neanderthal whacka-whacka as pre-pussy Lars Ulrich, matter of fact), and dizzy rhythms and vox straight outta the Stone Temple Pilots school of purple powered, post-grunge radio rawk. Although it has about zero‚??s worth of sleaze or ham-fisted glory mongering, and there ain‚??t nothin‚?? naked or sweaty about any of it, I can still see the appeal here. It‚??s smart rock, ya know. In fact, it pretty much reeks of smart kid-ism, and as we all know, smart kids will inherent the earth. ‚??Below‚?Ě is a high-brow stoner epic full of propulsive, elastic riffs, the 7 minute hellslog ‚??Siempre‚?Ě flirts with full-on acid doom, and the rest of the tracks vacillate between deep-fried crunch and, yeah, indie clang. So, there ya go. GreatDayForUp ain‚??t exactly my kinda slug of the hard stuff, but what the hell. If you dig Cave-In as much as you dig Soundgarden, you‚??ll probably pop a neck vein when ya hear this, bro. (Sleazegrinder)

Psych blow-out on Thursday at the Warehouse!
 
 Thursday, May 26
 $7, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 
 (The Sounds of) Kaleidoscope (DC)
 Relay (Philly)
 The Grey Daturas (Australia!)
 Kohoutek (DC)
 
 (The Sounds of) Kaleidoscope
 
 The debut release by DC '60s power trio featuring two former members of The Ropers. The fellows are getting a new sound out of that '60s-influenced groovy guitar-pop thing. These are (the sounds of) kaleidoscope: guitars in red, bass in blue, bleeding into purple, drums in black and white, together they paint a tale the way a lonely schizophrenic tells stories to his friends. Songs jut like trees out of the soundscape - not simply trees, but treehouses, inhabitable space. Vocals meander in and out of the spectrum giving clues to a proper interpretation. Still, none is forthcoming; the songs flee. Catchy numbers can be caught but slyly avoid adding up, preferring to attend a giddy picnic beyond the grasp of consciousnes, where 1+1+1 equals something inexplicable, a glimpse of beautiful form: kaleidoscope. These are their sounds. With a wink to the past and a nod to the future, these sounds are now. Close your eyes and have a look. (Tonevendor)
 
 (The Sounds of) Kaleidoscope excel at producing that whirling, swirling D.C. (okay, mid-Atlantic, maybe even all the way up to Boston) indie sound. With ex-members of The Ropers and The Still joining founder Damien Taylor, and Lilys Kurt Heasley lending a helping hand, how could they not? Your toes are gonna be tapping in no time. I guarantee it. (3hive)
 
 The Grey Daturas
 
 It‚??s hard to categorize the sound of a band like THE GREY DATURAS from Melbourne, Australia. But if it has to be done, they are probably best described as an improvised/instrumental noise-rock band. Since their earliest shows in 2001, the Grey Daturas have been celebrated as one of the loudest and most uncompromising live acts in Australia.
 
 As for their influences, they couldn‚??t be any more varied. Their influences range from such diverse acts as Sonic Youth, The Stooges, Earth, John Coltrane, Cluster, John Cage, Dark Throne, and '70s no-wave and post-punk.
 
 Thunderous heavy psychedelia masquerading as metal
 soundscapes performed in an arthouse manner reminiscent of other like-minded, contemporary sonic explorers (i.e. Wolf Eyes, Acid Mothers Temple, SubArachnoid Space, Paik (they even sport a similar multi-media show), Sunno))), Boris, Sonic Youth, Melvins, Glenn Branca, etc....) that is heavy and metal-ish and focused on darker vibes but without the weight of negative emotions to tie them down to a particular style or mood or that need for "toughness" that hampers other metal bands' ability to be everything the Grey Daturas are...simultaneously beautiful, menacing, scary, loud, and serene...
 
 Kohoutek
 
 Improvised psych with noise tendencies and abstraction. Sonic explorations in any combination of drums, percussion, guitar, bass, laptop, homemade electronics, field recordings, contact mics, chord organ, and household appliances. Have been described as "if Can were a 4AD band" and been compared to Jessamine, Acid Mothers Temple, and Skullflower, for what that's worth.
 
 upcoming Clavius productions at the Warehouse:
 
 5/31: The Dirty Projectors/Thw Wind-Up Bird/Stamen & Pistils
 6/1: Wooly Mammoth/Test-Site (math-metal from Milwaukee)/Nitroseed
 6/2: DCIC/Na (Japanese electro-acoustic improv)/Spaceships Panic Orbit
 6/7: The Impossible Shapes (Secretly Canadian)/Odwalas (Secretly Canadian)/Donny Hue & the Colors
 6/11: Navies (record release party)/Air Conditioning/Pissed Jeans/Double Dagger
 6/14: Alcian Blue/The Antiques/Unlucky Atlas
 6/20: Green Milk From the Planet Orange (Japanese space-rock/prog/psych)/WZT Hearts/The Cutest Puppy in the World

SATURDAY! May 28
 Warehouse Next Door
 9:00 / $7
 
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 REVIVAL (x-Canyon)
 COYOTE (Birdman Records/ex-The Holy Fallout, Excelsior)
 MOUNTAIN HIGH (ex-Ink and Dagger, Excelsior, Franklin, AM/FM etc)
 
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 
 REVIVAL formed in May 2004 in Washington, D.C. when three former members of the band Canyon ...Evan Berodt, bass; Dave Bryson, Drums; and Derry Deborja, keys...joined singer/guitarist Josh Read, formerly of The Getaway and The Child Ballads.
 
 COYOTE formed when members of The Holy Fallout, Excelsior and The Rabble Rousers convened in a West Philadelphia basement. Meaning: the heart of the Philadelphia music scene thrown into one supergroup is releasing their debut, and you are there. The driving pianos, screaming vocals, and fuzzed-out champion guitar leads produce a unique sound that is ready to be unleashed. They have been compared to The Black Heart Procession, The Doors, and the VSS/Slaves. By pulling from a multitude of musical influences, Coyote creates a sometimes haunting, sometimes sonic sound that allows the listener to take joy from pain. With
 lyrics that often portray unnerving situations, Coyote immediately grab your attention. The piano-driven melodies invite the audience inside their frenzied spirit.
 
 MOUNTAIN HIGH supply the snarling Excelsior sounds but adding a dual drumming attack rock that brings to mind a tribal Monorchid.

Tonight!
 
 Tuesday, May 31
 $7, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 
 DIRTY PROJECTORS (from CT, Western Vinyl/The Music Fellowship)
 THE WIND-UP BIRD (The Music Fellowship)
 STAMEN & PISTILS (lo-fi bedroom pop from DC)
 
 DIRTY PROJECTORS "The Getty Address" Western Vinyl
 
 The purpose of "glitch," the undanceable electronica that replaced beats and samples with stutters and burps, was to be, well, glitchy. That's all there was to it, which explains the
 style's limited appeal. Like other out-there forms, however, glitch provided inspiration to musicians who had no intention of simply making more of the stuff. Enter bicoastal multi-instrumentalist Dave Longstreth, who records as Dirty Projectors, and who labels his new The Getty Address an "epic glitch-opera" about the Eagles' Don Henley. The Projectors perform this week on the same bill with Washington's Stamen & Pistils, whose new EP is easygoing folk pop that's also tempered by synthetic thumps and squawks.
 
 On The Getty Address, Longstreth sings the role of Henley, whose connection to the Eagles singer-guitarist is less explicit than the composer's statement indicates. This Henley meets one Sacagawea Petrillo (sung by Lucy Greene), and the two explore an America of dwindling wilderness, expanding highways, and rapacious oil interests. Most of the scenario is explained by Longstreth's notes, not his lyrics, which tend to be cryptic. The female chorus frequently repeats a single sound or word, such as "Gilt Gold Scabs's" refrain of "kangarwomb."
    
 
 As a choral composer, Longstreth seems indebted to Steve Reich, and his other influences aren't all that novel: "Tour Along the Potomac," for example, combines Balinese gamelan with old-timey jazz. It's what Longstreth does after he's written and recorded the orchestral and choral parts that
 makes his work distinctive. He chops and recombines them, so that fairly conventional "modern classical" passages alternate with ones that have been reduced to pulses and loops. The
 Getty Address
may not have a lot to say about the state of the union, but it's an intriguing glimpse into a realm where indie pop, laptop noise, and conservatory music all blur together.
 
 STAMEN & PISTILS "End of the Sweet Parade" Echelon Productions
 
 Stamen & Pistils' eight-song End of the Sweet Parade is simpler in conception than The Getty Address, but still appealingly dense. Such songs as "Hand Painted Characters" and "Sleep for the Bells" seem to have started simply with acoustic guitar and voice, but then were layered with overdubs, many of them harshly electronic. Titles such as "Penny Farthing Fair" give some idea of this duo's folkie core, but not of what happens next. Drones, bangs, and whooshes
 mingle with the multitracked harmonies, creating both stylistic friction and a formidable sense of space. The result may not be exactly operatic, but it is richly textured and consistently inventive. (Mark Jenkins)
 
 Appearing Tuesday at the Warehouse Next Door with the Wind-Up Bird.

Wednesday, June 1
 $7, all ages
 doors at 8:30, show at 9
 
 Wooly Mammoth
 Test-Site (mostly instru-metal prog from Milwaukee!)
 Nitroseed (instru-metal doom from MD, mem. of Earthride/Spirit Caravan)
 
 Wooly Mammoth and Nitroseed need no description as two of the area's most forward-thinking heavy bands. Joining them on tour is Test-Site:
 
 The first thing you need to know is that Test-Site is mostly instrumental. The second thing you need to know about Test-Site is that they were formerly called Blackwater. It seemed that there were a hundred other bands with the name. They are now Test-Site. Test-Site is led by guitarist James Potter. Potter has played in some of Milwaukee's heaviest bands. He wielded the lead guitar for the legendary Dr. Shrinker then went along for the ride when Shrinker morphed into the mighty Feck. Feck imploded under their own weight leaving Potter bandless. He even gave up the guitar for a while. Soon the Gods of the Mighty Riff came calling again. He teamed up with Tim Wick on drums (Epsom Blu) and Matt Budda on bass (Ballpoint) to form the crushing Test-Site. The Test-Site sound is like the universes of Dr. Shrinker and Feck colliding in a Big Bang of crushing riff-laden mayhem. Sparse harsh vocals pepper the decimated landscape leaving you devastated. Heavy, catchy, powerful, and mesmerizing, taking the strength of metal infusing it with'70s prog-rock (leaving all the crap out). Throwing the influences of Italian horror films and the psych films of Alejandro Jodorowsky into the mix makes Test-Site the powerful entity it is.
