The Empty Bottle
$20 // 21+MARTIN REVWOLF EYESMYSTIC RULER-BENTLEY ANDERSON----------MARTIN REV is an American musician and the instrumentalist behind the protopunk band Suicide. His solo career has released several solo albums for a number of labels, including ROIR and Puu. REVS style varies widely from release to release, from no wave to melodic pop to heavy synth induced rock. His work inspired a legion of musicians including fellow warehouse-dwelling experimentalists Throbbing Gristle, Depeche Mode, Daft Punk and even Bruce Springsteen. An experimental songwriting icon of the 80s, MARTIN REV finally makes his mark on the Bottle after nearly four decades of playing around the world.Since the late 90s, Michigan trio WOLF EYES have been known to create harsh and hypnotic electronic landscapes that merge the frenzied energy of hardcore with the nihilistic menace of early industrial and noise. A homemade atomic bomb, the group has toured constantly since the early 2000s and their unfathomably prolific output has garnered a strong cult following, as well as a new generation of curious listeners. WOLF EYES most recent record, Undertow, released last year on their own record label, Lower Floor, finds the Detroit noise trio a bit tamer than usual, as they apply a wrecking ball to the spacious frameworks of world music, ambient, and even reggae. Brooklyn’s MYSTIC RULER and BENTLEY ANDERSON seep a dark and cosmic haze across our stage this evening, engulfing your mind with their sorcerous and otherworldy electronic reign on the listener’s mind and soul. Beware of their energy sapping dark synth and experimental drone, this duo is here to make you obey.
