Experimental sounds interesting

Those who were lucky enough to witness the inspired sets by Ross Manning, Grayson Cooke and Muttboy at Lismore Regional Gallery recently will already know that Part 2 of Sound Crucible in the Blue Room at the Italo Club in Lismore this Friday, April 30, will be nothing if not transformative.

The line-up for this gig includes The Scrapes, a guitar and violin duo from Brisbane, playing songs from their recent release Mourning Blues; last year’s guest and welcome returnee Mike Cooper, doing amazing things with his lap steel guitar and electronica, and who’ll be accompanied by visual artist Grayson Cooke; Heil Sprits showering the room with harsh electronics; and Festive Jackyls will perform with Muttboy to a visual score by VJ Nuth’n.

This is definitely not a night with a covers band. This is something different; something experimental; and something stimulating.

Unfortunately due to scheduling clashes Sky Needle will not be able to appear for Friday’s gig. Awww. But the good news is that they’ll be replaced by local outfit Ouija. Hooray!

Entry is $15/10.

The aural action starts at 7.30pm.
