Showcase: Wednesday At Bar Matchless In Brooklyn

New York – The first real signs of Spring are finally beginning to emerge for us here in the city that never sleeps, but just because the nights are getting shorter and the sun’s rays are getting longer doesn’t mean we’re easing up on our monthly showcase. This round we’ve got some great bands with some real grit.

Wednesday, April 16 at 8pm 

11pm GHXST

10pm Ceramics

9:15 pm Maquina Supervium

8:30pm Skull Practitioners 

Bar Matchless Doors @ 8pm / Music @ 8:30pm / $7 @ the door

GHXST is a dark noise pop trio, who rock droning guitars and dissonant vocals that are a direct reflection of NYC nights. They just released a video for their single “Dead Town,” largely a tribute to The Velvet Underground. It doesn’t get more NYC than that.

Skull Practitioners just released a cassette

The guys of Ceramics dip heavily into post-punk with their latest full length, Badside on Black Bell, where they are in good company with the likes of Total Slacker and Honduras. 

The members of Brooklyn band Maquina Supervium have diverse backgrounds, but all become grounded in their fuzzy, melodic post-punk with shoegaze atmosphere. They are best seen and felt.

Skull Practitioners make some heavy psych garage rock, with a real DIY punk ethic. February saw their first self-produced release on cassette, st1, and with every show they play the buzz is building.
