Gnaw, Prana Bindu, Sonic Suicide Squad, Capacities, Ubasute at the Stanhope House

The Stanhope House and MuteAnt Sounds Netlabel are planning an uncompromising night of experimental music, hardcore, and grind for the underground connoisseur. Here are a few artists from here on the Free Music Archive who will be performing at the event.

Gnaw (facebook) is a genre destroying journey, utilizing pounding percussion, factory noise, chordal slabs of guitar and bass, homemade electro-acoustic instruments and Dubin’s unique and legendary vocalizations. They're the brainchild of Alan Dubin (Old Lady Driver/Khanate), with members of Enos Slaughter and Ike Yard. The five-piece have been assaulting audiences in the US as well as Europe with live shows since 2009 and have just completed their second album, "Horrible Chamber" to be released on Seventh Rule Records in October, 2013.

Prana-Bindu (facebookwebsite) features members of The Hat City Intuitive, Mittimus & 76% Uncertain that freely improvise through space and time. Matt SekelTodd KnappGene Moore, Gene Janas, and John Howard (Hat City Intuitive/DC noise-rockers The Plums) are slated for performance. 

Sonic Suicide Squad (bandcamp) were highly active from 2008-2010 releasing a slew of CDR's on such infamous labels as DC's Panic Research and Halifax's Snapped in Half; as well as a self released 7". The band brought their free jazz noise terror style on tour as the opening act for Acid Mothers Temple's 2009 US and Canada tour routing them 15,000 miles in 6 weeks. This is the first emergence of the Squad since the hiatus of 2010. Core members Sam Lohman (drums; Sheer Terror/Nimrod) and Vinnie Paternostro (tenor sax, tronics) will collab with Mike Graziano (bass; Earthly One).

Also performing that night will be Capacities (bandcamp), known for unapologetic hardcore from members of Black Kites, The Saddest Landscape, Less Life and more. The sound is chaotic, cathartic, fast and heavy, straddling a line between bands like Orchid, Neil Perry and Portraits Of Past. Also, Ubasute, taking their name from an alleged Japanese custom where the elderly are taken to a remote place and left to die, grindcore freaks Ubasute produce a sound to live up to their name. Brutal grind featuring the vocals of Alex Caprio, you better not blink or you'll miss their 15 minute live set.

The show is 18+ $8.00 advance/$10.00 at the door, doors 6pm, music 8pm. Get advanced tickets through TicketWeb.

The band Ubasute is worth checking out, I got their lp recently and seen them live a bunch of times. Don't know why they linked to the singer's facebook instead of a bandcamp link...
