Bird Names are freaky freak pop from Athens, GA. One of the lines from the press release was, "When Bird Names performs their ritual correctly the disarming glow of beauty lingers beyond the event in time, and people remember themselves as seen refracted in song." I have no fucking clue what that means. Bird Names are equal parts demented and catchy, though, and pretty damn good. Beat Happening minus Calvin Johnson plus lots and lots of cough syrup and legitimate musical ability? You decide.
Check out The Beach at the Lake or Phantoms & Fortunes.
Hartford Sound Alliance opens. This Hartford based collective of composers and performers is dedicated to the creation, performance and promotion of new music via composition, improvisation and sound installation, as well as intermedia and interdisciplinary projects.
