The following Thursday (12/19), local noisy punkers Heaven’s Gate (whose debut album is pretty good) will play with locals Advaeta and Chicago noise rockers Millions.
The ensuing Friday (12/20), avant-garde ensemble Zs (whose Sam Hillmer put out a sax-based solo record in the spring) play with Cibo Matto’s Miho Hatori and DJ Bubbles.
Finally, on January 3 (1/3), Kayo Dot will join Hospital Productions noise artist Lussuria and Jeremiah Cymerman for the first edition of a monthly series curated by Psalm Zero bandmates Andrew Hock (of Castevet) and Charlie Looker (ex-Extra Life).
Bedford & Bowery stopped by for a preview show last Thursday:
Todd Patrick’s latest all-ages venture, Trans-Pecos, opened last night in the old Silent Barn space on the Bushwick/Ridgewood border. There wasn’t an overabundance of fanfare at the “preview show,” maybe because of an unforeseen pause in L train service. A decent-sized crowd came out to watch Gnaw, Notekillers and Psalm Zero, a lineup curated by Northern Spy Records. But the unknowing visitor might not have guessed that the occasion was semi-momentous, or, more likely, he or she wouldn’t have even known about it at all.
The same trippy murals that decorated the walls when this was the Silent Barn remain now that it’s called Trans-Pecos, and a liquor license was prominently displayed near the bar. The mellow opening seemed like a harbinger of what’s to come at what Patrick describes on his site as an “all-ages music venue for ‘new music’ (aka noise, avant composition, artistic rock, etc).”
