Androids on the Boardwalk: An Evening of Far-Out Indie Acts
Jul 27, 2015 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm| $10
THE SKY CAPTAINS OF INDUSTRY
DALTON DESCHAIN & THE TRAVELING SHOW
MONDAY, JULY 27, 8:30PM, $10
Parallel dimensions converge over Brooklyn for one night only in this showcase of New York’s best and most bizarre indie bands. All of these up-and-coming acts are bound to make you dance, flail, and maybe feel some weird feelings you weren’t planning on experiencing on a Monday night.
The Sky Captains of Industry are New York’s premiere rockabilly sci-fi act, and hold the universe-wide record for most fun you can have dancing to songs about cannibals. Robot Princess’ fast and aggressive punk mixed with vivid throwback lyrics feels like a high school dance DJ’d by the “indoor kids.” Meanwhile, Dalton Deschain & The Traveling Show take you back in time to the 1940s, when circus freaks ruled Detroit. And finally, Duckspeak’s uplifting melodies and chord structures clash brilliantly with their lonely and isolationist lyrics that you won’t be able to stop yourself from singing along to.
There’s never been a night of music like this, and there just may never be again. Come to the Knitting Factory on July 27, 8:30pm, and lose yourself in another space and time. 21 and over, $10 at the door.
