Snake Rattle Rattle Snake Halloween Show
Join us SATURDAY OCTOBER 31st for HALLOWEEN at Syntax Physic Opera (554 S. Broadway, Denver)
Snake Rattle Rattle Snake with Reverend Deadeye, Church Fire and DJ Vince Voyeur.
21+ -- 8:00PM -- Costumes encouraged

With songs as seductively venomous as its name suggests, Snake Rattle Rattle Snake began in late 2008 when veterans of the Denver underground scene pursued a mutual interest in darkly atmospheric music with grounding in pulsing rhythms. Since its debut performance on Valentine's Day 2009, the band has shared the stage with The Dead Weather, Black Angels, The Rapture, Devotchka and Rocket From The Crypt. With severe yet ethereal guitars chiming over the top of tribal percussion and shot through with singer Hayley Helmericks' caustic lyrics, Snake sounds like a vital combination of spooky surf band, dark-wave rock and Siouxsie Sioux fronting a synth-driven New Order. The sense of menace and haunted introspection ultimately transforms into the kind of catharsis born of vanquishing personal demons with a joyfully cinematic flair. One of this band's secret weapons is the rhythmic structure created by drummer/percussionist Andrew Warner. The rich percussive textures allow the seething whirl of guitar interplay between Doug Spencer and Wilson Helmericks to ride on the waves of Jon Evans' driving bass lines.

The Reverend Deadeye is the Reverend's son of a Reverend's son. He spent his youth handlin' snakes and performin' at tent revivals alongside his Pentacostal family on the Navajo reservation in Arizona. This sacred musical heritage finds its way prominently into his performances. But don't expect a Sunday mornin' church service; instead, expect a Saturday night baptism with fire holy rollin' revival. Featuring his long time collaborator, the enigmatic time-keeper and shuffle-inducer Brother Al on drums, the duo deliver greasy gospel interpretations and gritty trance blues with a garage sensibility, capable of turnin' the whole joint into a spirit filled bar room revival..

Blending punk attitude and passionate vocal displays with expertly crafted dance songs, electronic pop duo Church Fire isn't really like anything else in Denver. Its closest musical equivalents might be bands like Phantogram, Future Islands and Crystal Castles due to their combination of physical presence with impossible to ignore pop melodies...Church Fire performs frequently in the city and somehow seems to get better with every entrancing show."
