Aftermath of a Sonic Boom
Sure-- it was over a week ago, but good things warrant heralding, even after the fact.
Sonic Boom who consists soley of Pete Kember of Spaceman 3- played a psychedelic, experimental set at Silverlake Lounge on January 30th, and folks are still yammering about The Awesome that ensued.
Like a switchboard operator, he mastered over a bay of analog circuitry, stabbing cables in and out to create signals which were fed directly into the PA systems. No microphones. No computers. Pure spacey, throbbing noise.
175 people stood in stunned silence watching, and I'm so pissed I wasnt one of them. Hindsight is a bitch.
