SHOW AND TELL is a biweekly listening party for new and veteran electronic music producers every other Wednesday at the Living Room Bar on Capitol Hill.
SHOW AND TELL provides an opportunity for aspiring and familiar producers to debut, preview, and/or showcase live sets and material – all in the cozy confines of the Living Room Bar.
And, damn, we're happy about our guests this time around, Relcad and ndCv! Two absolute stunning a...rtists that both epitomize creativity and originality.
RELCAD is a world-class and heavily-trained experimental house/techno musician that conjures up wild soundscapes and stunning atmospheres that combine the pulse of house music, the detail-centered tweaks of micro-dub, and the relentless energy of techno. Recently he release the full-length album Capitol Island on Pleasure Boat Records and received nationwide radio play.
Dave Segal of The Stranger says that "Capitol Island is another phenomenal excursion into unconventional dance music. Once again, Relcad proves himself to be an artist of fathoms-deep sound-design skills. He imbues the nine tracks on Capitol Island with singularly strange textures and beats that skirt fancifully around the 4/4 template you've heard in millions of techno tracks. Everything old sounds new in Relcad's hands. Many of the tracks here feature spectral voices haunting the periphery (see especially "Morning Breaks" and "You Bring the Juice"), adding intrigue to already fascinating pieces. The concluding title track—which meshes the most sublime elements of Detroit and Köln techno—contains possibly the most gorgeous electronic music you will hear all year... This album belongs in all techno lovers' top 10 for '10." www.relcad.com
NDCV is Andy Seaver, whose musical knack involves creating pieces that feel suspended in air. Creating many pieces from found sound, Andy creates such fragile and glowing tunes that they've stopped me dead in my tracks in the past. ndCv has released a few albums that are definitely worth your time, check them out at ndcv.basskamp.com. This is the first ndCv show to happen in quite a while, and we can't say enough good things about his music.
Hosted by Naturebot , who'll be djing a panoply of local and forgotten tunes. Bring your ears!
We're going to try a special setup at the Living Room this time around... also bring your dance slacks.
Its also Naturebot's birthday party, so there may be a bit less clothing that usual. You've been warned.
No cover, 9PM start, happy hour specials until 10PM- $1 pizzas/sliders and $3 drafts/well drinks. Now isn't that fun?
