Heatsick, all the way from Berlin, headlines Haçeteria tonight

Here’s the scoop:

This month Haçeteria is beyond proud to present a very rare out-of-town guest, Heatsick, alias of Berlin-based producer Stephen Warwick. Occupying a space between experimental electronics and outsider house, Heatsick is a rising star associated with the ever-dynamic PAN records and just dropped his new hyper-modern, inventive, dystopian LP Re-engineering on PAN. Heatsick’s live P.A.s are famously both playful and heady, rhythmic and exploratory, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what he has in store for us.

RSVP and invite your friends! And watch this mellow but mesmerizing video:

Cheap Time

Cheap Time rules! They used to tour with Jay Reatard and they’re responsible for a couple of the best live shows I’ve ever seen in my life and they’re headlining the Knockout tonight! Also, they wrote the best song ever:

We are presenting this No Age show at Noise Pop 2014

No Age are responsible for two of our favorite Noise Pop memories of all time (a public service announcement regarding the Foo Fighters and lameness and a panel discussion about album art that included a cool picture of David Letterman), so we’re thrilled and honored to be co-presenting their Noise Pop 2014 appearance next month at Bottom of the Hill.

You may RSVP and invite your friends on Facebook, and tickets are on sale now, though we’ll be giving away a pair in the coming weeks, so be on the lookout for that. And we’ll be taking a look at the rest of the bill too, so be on the lookout for that.

And be sure to check out the rest of the Noise Pop 2014 lineup, which includes a Mikal Cronin show at the Chapel and another No Age show at Brick & Mortar.

I made the poster; what do you think?

Cocktails at the Converse Store

I saw Cocktails open for Mikal Cronin last night at Rickshaw Stop’s 10th anniversary party they RULED, and tonight at 6pm they’re playing a free show at the Converse Store downtown!

Here’s their latest single:

Horrifying scene at Rickshaw Stop’s 10th anniversary party

Rickshaw Stop‘s weeklong 10th anniversary bash kicked off last night with a rip-roaring show by the Spits. The drummer was a definite highlight, as usual.

The festivities continue tonight with Mikal Cronin, Cool Ghouls, and Cocktails! And tickets are almost gone! Get ‘em here! (Geographer and YACHT are totally sold out already, so better get on that Craigslist.)
