Venetian Snares to Play Respectables in October
Snares's music is a fire-breathing swirl of off-kilter rhythms and sonic assaults, given to abrupt time changes and brutal tones similar to John Zorn's more aggressive stuff. Not that it doesn't possess of beauty, it's just that if you are really wedded to typical music tropes like melody and harmony, you might be a little put off.
Live action Snares has a kung-fu grip and is excessively interesing to watch and absorb. Also appearing is Miami's noise pop genius Dino Felipe and something I don't know called Wisp, which after listening to a little bit on myspace is some pretty cool IDM-type stuff. The Wisp music is a LOT more accessible than either Snares or Felipe's tracks.
Venetian Snares appears live at Respectable Street Cafe on Saturday, October 24 with Dino Felipe and Wisp. Show starts at 8 p.m. and tix are available online at the Respectable Web site
