Filthy symphony...

Last night, I caught 75% of the Brightblack Morning Light show at Cafe du Nord. Despite the fact that these aficionados likely haven't bathed in nearly a decade, their sound was pretty remarkable. I was warned by a friend who went saw the Tuesday night show that they were so good, he wondered if they were in fact pulling an Ashlee Simpson and lip-syncing to prerecorded tunes. But these guys are the real deal. Absolutely filthy, but quite talented. Too bad they didn't go on until 11pm... I left around midnight, a bit past my bedtime, but well worth the sleep lost...

Sadly I missed the opening acts I heard so much about - the musical "group" with no humans, rather a projection of psychedelic screen savers, set to "celestial" music. Lucky for us both, all this swirly-colored wonderment is available gratis online. Check it: Iasos
