Igneous Eyes

The Writhing Squares Record Release Show at KFN Aug. 11

Kevin Nickles (Ecstatic Vision, Taiwan Housing Project) and Daniel Provenzano (Purling Hiss, Spacin') rocket through space as The Writhing Squares. Tonight, the duo celebrates their latest album In The Void Above (Siltbreeze) with a performance at Kung Fu Necktie. The hard-driving record circles as components of chaotic noise emanate amid the locked-down bass and percussion, while the vocal interjections serve as captain-esque reference points. Splashed with the additional sonic colors of flute and saxophone, this noise-rock meets jazz ambiance steers toward the unexplored in a twisted futuristic groove. This evening’s festivities will also feature the local psych-punk of Igneous Eyes and the commanding psych-rock power of Birds of Maya. The genre-elusive, jazz-rock freak-out that is Massachusetts’s The Blues Dream Box completes this adventurous night of music. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N.

The Opening Party for the 2nd Annual EÉL OÜY or not at PhilaMOCA May 2

This evening, PhilaMOCA will be hosting the opening party for the 2nd annual EÉL OÜY or not, which is a variety show that celebrates the visual, aural, cinematic and culinary arts. The event will feature mind-expanding works from Neil Burke (Monoroid), Rodger Binyone (NO-Man Illustration), and Jason Killinger (JK Design & Direction). Killinger will also be performing a solo set of rad jams as Spacin’ Chillinger. Psych-punk outfit Igneous Eyes and Sinking Body will once again be joining in the festivities. And no one else there will be caring about the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight either. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7pm, All Ages - Alexis V.
