Vancouver band Nü Sensae perform at Allston basement show 6/23/2011
Halfway through their two month North American tour, WHITE LUNG and NU SENSAE -- both Vancouver-based female-fronted hardcore bands -- made their way to a sweltering Allston basement last night for a show with FOREIGN OBJECTS, ANCIENT FILTH and SKIMASK
GA'AN, Skimask, and Fat History Month tore up Allston’s Problem House last night. In between fits of allergic sneezing in a dusty basement, I stood at the front of the room, next to the only light bulb, soaking up every second of it.
The set from Chicago trio Ga'an consisted of jams that swayed nimbly across a psychedelic progressive soundscape, very reminiscent of Manhattan’s electro psych band Gang Gang Dance.
Skimask. Live it, learn it, love it... then follow them down to North Carolina on their December tour -- doesn't even matter that the venues aren't listed on the flyer below, because the Boston noise-punk trio apparently doesn't just play venues, THEY PLAY CITIES. Phlipcam above from last night's show at Great Scott, when Skimask offered a mid-show sonic suckerpunch beatdown between local cats the Beat Awfuls and Atlanta girl gang the Coathangers.
