Saturday night: Serious Beak, Pirate and Dumbsaint at the Lansdowne

Posted by Lachlan

Serious Beak album launch with Pirate and Dumbsaint at the Lansdowne HotelThis Saturday 26 November, Serious Beak will be launching their debut album 'Huxwhukw' at a free show at the Lansdowne Hotel, joined by their progressive pals Pirate and Dumbsaint.

The even kicks off at 8pm and is absolutely free. More info over at the Facebook event.

Haven't heard Serious Beak? You can stream the album here. The band features members of Squat Club, Adrift for Days, Slimey Things, Battle Pope, Squid, Ebolie, the Mabobs, Push Air and the Puffy Jackets, Dyke Destroyer and many more.

Press release to follow:

"Huxwhukw" is an eccentric amalgamation of mind-melting, toe-tapping, psychedelic, progressive and poly-rhythmic discordant music, sure to please fans of Meshuggah, Mastodon, Botch, The Mars Volta and King Crimson.

Huxwhukw is the supernatural long-beaked cannibal bird and servant to Baxwbakwalnuksiwe, the Cannibal-at-the-North-end-of-the-world in Kwakwaka'wakw mythology. Huxwhukw uses his long, snapping beak to crack open the skulls of men to eat their brains and pluck out their eyeballs.

All hail Huxwkwux and the Crooked Beak of Heaven.

31/07: Sydney Weekend Gig Guide (Helm, Backyard Mortuary, Kill A Celebrity, Corpsickle)

Posted by Lachlan

I'm very hungover so I'll make this short and sweet. Friends; family; religion. These are the three things you must slay if you wish to succeed in grimness.

Whatever.

Tonight at the Lansdowne Hotel:
Kill A Celebrity (midnight)
Backyard Mortuary (11pm)
Beer Corpse (10pm)
Corpsickle (9pm)

This is Kill A Celebrity's 2nd last gig. We're going to do a final one probably around the end of the year with our mates and then we can both go on with our lives and pretend this never happened. I'll probably be giving away our new split CD with Krupskaya too. Why not?

Tomorrow night at the Bald Faced Stag: Helm are playing. Helm RULE. Check them out.

Love and doom.
