Actual Pain & Second Sight Presents: Psychic Circle 03/22/12
We are so stoked to present this awesome four day fest, the first annual Psychic Circle! Originally I started Second Sight a year ago with some friends to fill the void in Seattle for good underground DIY dance parties. A lot has happened in the past year! We switched venues, started to book national touring bands, and from the very first night we threw Seattle has been dancing their asses off.
So in order to commemorate our one year anniversary, we've gone ahead and booked four shows back to back at our favorite venues in town! And of course with some of our favorite bands in the world! Check it out!
Thursday May 10th - Day 1 - Deth Book Release Party at Pony - We are publishing a new magazine called "Deth Book" edited by the very talented and strange Ozma Otacava. Come to Pony early to get a free copy, stay late and dance the night away with Braxton & Palmer, resident Second Sight DJ Rxch Wxtch and special guest, Actual Pain AKA your's truly.
Friday May 11th - Day 2 - Second Sight at Electric Tea Garden - w/ Light Asylum and Litanic Mask - I am sure you have heard Light Asylum, they had the record of the year last year and the new record is heavy and dark as fuck. Litanic Mask is one of our favorite bands from Portland and they'll open this very special Second Sight along with our three resident DJs Rxch Wxtch, Ozma Otacava, and Sh6rl6s6.
Saturday May 12th - Day 3 - Demdike Stare, Tropic Of Cancer, S4NTA_MU3RTE, A Story Of Rats, at the Black Lodge - Demdike Stare travel all the way from Manchester UK to bring you the nauseating pitched sounds that only they bring. This amazing duo is responsible for some of the most authentic horror scores available for films that are only in your nightmares. Demdike is on tour with LA's Tropic Of Cancer and their minimal synth dance sounds should be a nice precursor to the evenings terror. With A Story Of Rats, one of Seattle's best ambient drone duo SF weirdo music pioneer S4NTA_MU3RTE playing records throughout the night, this should prove to be the most eclectic show of the fest!
Sunday May 13th - Crypts, Nightmare Fortress, Ononos, Vox Mod, at IN Arts NW - Crypts may be much hated but they are also much loved. These boys have carved themselves a niche here in Seattle as being one of the loudest, rudest, crudest, electronic groups to smash guitars since the days of Cobain. Nightmare Fortress (Sweating Tapes) brings one of the best live shows I've seen replete with fog, lights and musicianship that doesn't need either fog or lights. Ononos are of course Seattle's answer to the early Waxtrax sound and we couldn't be happier about that. Finally, Vox Mod is an amazing dance outfit comprised of one of the most talented producers in town. We are stoked for this show!!!
