Giveaway (and Belated Poster of the Week): A Pair of Tickets and Two Free Posters to Sunday Night's Lightning Bolt Show at Trees
Designed by Matt Barnes of Austin's PowerHouse Factories, this hand-designed ordeal promotes Sunday night's highly anticipated show at Trees featuring Lightning Bolt, Indian Jewelry and Best Fwends. And it does a phenomenal job--not only because it includes actual lightning bolts, but also because its overall presentation accurately reflects the spazzy aesthetic of this end-of-weekend bill.
In this week's paper, Randall Roberts explains why this show is a must-see:
Lightning Bolt is a two-piece band from Providence, Rhode Island, and in the past 12 years, Brian Chippendale (drums) and Brian Gibson (guitar) have released four chaotic, spazzy art-metal albums that are metal only in the loosest way. Lightning Bolt songs are like crazy, wounded wildcats: dangerous and unpredictable, with jagged claws and scary fury (and speed and beauty).Continue reading...Just as interesting, though, is the undercard, what with Indian Jewelry's noisy, industrial drone and Best Fwends' spastic, unpredictable dance- and art-punk
