MOLTEN EARTH Mixed genre Bay Area experimental / punk / dark wave / industrial acts gather at an underground space in Oakland next Saturday July 28th for raising money for the Florence Project, an organization bringing together separated families at the Arizona border. There will be live performances, DJ’s raffles, and who knows what else. For a brief preview of what to expect sonically; Moira Scar blast out loud, dense, sonic explosions of Queer forward dark wave/ acid punk, with a wide array of sonic approaches on their just released “Wound World, Part 1” Also performing, Oakland’s Daisy World known for their uniquely original psychedelic, antagonistic, dark, noisy punk sets that fly by before you even know you’re in a tripped out fog of inverted reality. Daisy World is a well oiled machine with razor like precision, and thunderous drumming, walls of drenched guitars and basses that bend together like a tripods of intense sound of chaos. Echoed vocals scream and cascade right on the cusp of the mix; beautiful intense sound. Also on the bill is Oakland’s Yama Uba, on Psychic Eye Records is darkwave and dark noise from the singer/bassist of Ötzi, with their unique and crafted blending of heavy and intentioned takes on industrial, dark wave, and noise. Sailor Neptune of the bay area industrial collective S.B.S.M. will be opening the event, stay tuned for a link to their work but for now it’s under wraps, as well as a resurrection of bay area morphing anti-conceptual troublemakers x/Nerfbau. Dj Sly Ida will be providing the relief in between blasts of sonic mayhem and even some enjoyment. Look up these artists and support their work if possible.
