Resonatormag.com Presents: RESoteric
Resonator Magazine: you aint never had a friend like us. Were kind of like that cool older brother or sister that tipped you off via mixtapes to music that was way ahead of its (and your) time, so that you got to walk around your middle-school cafeteria acting like you were incredibly clued-in and impressing all the 8th graders.
In fact, we at Res are EXACTLY like that. So, for this installment of Resonator Magazines monthly live music showcase at the Tank (354 W 45th St, Manhattan), were bringing you RESoteric-stuff that we love and that we can guarantee youve never heard anything like, ever. These bands are ones that youd use to bookend mix tapes (screw CDs, tapes take love) to impress potential suitors, friends, bosses, baristas. These are bands that make you stop and say daaaamn. Thats it, just daaaamn.
All the way from Hotlanta, GA (which is what the cool kids call it, trust us we know these things), are both The Constellations and Judi Chicago. The Constellations bring an energetic, massive stage spectacular comprised of a whos-who of the best in Atlanta bands. Judi Chicago is a band Res Mags been writing about forever and a day, and its about time you finally get to see them if you havent-one of the craziest, most insanely fun live shows ever, perfect music for drinking and dancing at the same time. Trixie says Judi Chicago sounds like Happy Mondays with circuit bending. Youve never heard anything like that? EXACTLY.
Headliners for the night, NY-based Ava Luna, focus in on the tension between a charged post-punk drum-and-synth-bass rhythm section and the combined vocal talents of manic frontman Carlos Hernandez and a trio of startlingly gospel voiced backup singers. Post-punk futuristic gospel? Youll be thanking us and begging for more.
As per usual, Res folks Shaun, Hacks and Trixie will be DJing throughout the night to make one flowing, cohesive experience, and therell be a three-VJ showdown between Paris, Mary Ann and Jean to ensure that youll have never seen anything like RESoteric, either.
RESoteric: Youll have never had a night like this.
