Nite of Respite Pt. 2 Drone Show at Eyedrum - Dec. 11, 2009

From Creative Loafing:

"Tonight (Fri., Dec. 11) Respite From the Cold II billows over Eyedrum with an evening of warm ambient drones, atmospheric dirges, head-cleaning noise and various other guises of minimal aural pleasantries. There will be plenty of warm beverages on-hand to enhance the listening experience as well." - Chad Radford


The Lineup includes:
Lotus Plaza - drones, tapes, and general awesomeness
Magic Apron - quiet guitar meditations with resonant filters and soft vocal attachments..so pretty
Brainworlds - guitar drones deep and wide, mind-bogglingly nice
Nomen Novum - field recordings, samples, and bleepy blippy synth terrificness
Marvelous – members of 1000 holy shards and Lid Emba with David Kirby drone with synths and percussion manipulations

(...apparently this meant "A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack on repeat. - Bradford)

I went to the Eyedrum with the intention of making a recording of Lockett's show but was so impressed by all the performers that night i decided to record them all. Highly recommended dispatches from Atlanta's apparently burgeoning new wave of drone acts. (Note - Unfortunately there was a technical problem with my recording of Nomen Novum's set. It was my first attempt at using a new device and i fucked up. Great set though.)
