Technophobia @ Black Cat DC July 19 2014

I’ve almost gotten myself all caught up blogging all of the shows I’ve been to for the year. Before I let any more time slip by I’m going to do my best to get us all caught up in the next few days. I know, I’ve said this before…

Curse from Baltimore opened up the show this evening.   The hard hitting duo put on a performance that bounced between analogue and digital sounds. Primarily because the drummer/programmerLogan Terkelsen was switching between a live drum kit and a programmed drum machine on ever track they performed. Definitely an interesting concept indeed.  On the synth was Jane Vincent.  I recall remembering how cool it was that her settings sounded so raw, powerful, and like electric guitars.  I’m kicking myself I didn’t get a photo of their set up.

Void Vision from Philadelphia was not only easy on the eyes, but the pop sensibilities in her music was enjoyable too.

I was at the Black Cat this evening to support Technophobia. A trio consisting of Steve EP, Katie Petix, and Denman C. Anderson.  I’ve been knocking around in the same circles/scene as Denman for a few years, so it was nice to finally take a moment to check out what he is up to musically.  Technophobia’s sound was dark and haunting, yet pop elements reared themselves in their tunes. Complete with LED light show, Denman’s performance was spectacular.  A ton of state presence was demonstrated. Probably because the crew had been performing steadily for about a year leading up to this performance. While manning the programming and synths Katie and Steve concocted a soundscape that is perfect for Denman’s versatile vocal styling’s.  I’m glad I got to catch this performance.  It was Denman’s last weekend in DC before he moved to NYC.  I know the group is gearing up more music, performances, and who knows what else.  I just know I’m excited to hear and see it.
