Kinski/Low Hums/Diminished Men
January 18 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$12
-KINKSI are a legendary Seattle outfit that offer up a jagged crystalline sonic experience that tips its hat to the disparate influences of punk, post-punk, psych, krautrock and everything in between. Kinski is celebrating 20 years of bringing critically acclaimed song craftsmanship and has just released their newest offering : “Accustomed to Your Face” Kill Rock Stars https://www.killrockstars.com/artists/kinski
-LOW HUMS are another seminal Seattle music act known for their genre blending. They dig from a swirling tool box of musical influences as diverse as “The first Psychedelic Era 1965-1968, Acid Rock, 70’s rock, 80’s skate rock, The Sonics, Dead Moon, Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd… Early British Invasion like ‘Them’ or you know the Rolling Stones, and perhaps a bit of Weird Spaghetti Western, Funkadelic, Howlin’ Wolf, and Sun Ra” http://lowhums.com/
-DIMINISHED MEN “By distorting hard boiled film and classic instrumental music through a dark, overcast lens, Diminished Men refocus their influences into something entirely unique. Their jagged, hard-charging approach evokes images of slit jugulars and accelerated heart rates, all the while swathing you in a blissful claustrophobia. Drawing elements of Link Wray, Morricone’s dissonant horror scores, gritty noir and Joe Meek’s sickly productions, as well as the provocative imagery of filmmakers like Wim Wenders and Jean-Pierre Melville, synthesizing them into something truly organic and original. “ https://www.diminishedmen.com/bio.php
