ROCK OF ASIAN: Adventures in Modern Music Festival

September 26th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Dear DISGRASIAN friends in Chi-town–get yr asses down to The Empty Bottle tonight for five days of nonstop, avant-garde, indie-rawkousness. The full lineup of the fifth annual Adventures in Modern Music fest can be found on Pitchfork, but September 30th is the date not to miss, when Japanese metal gods Boris, psychedelic guitar legend Michio Kurihara (who played on Boris’s most recent and critically-acclaimed record), and Damon and Naomi (of Galaxie 500 fame) will all perform. Kurihara will be doing double duty, playing solo and with Boris, whose video “Furi” is featured here:

Chi-town, I expect nothing less than for you to rock out with yr cock out!

In honor of the summer solstice, I give you Michio Kurihara’s “Pendulum on a G-String/The Last Cicada” from Sunset Notes, the legendary, Japanese psychedelic guitarist’s 2005 album that was just released in the States. Dreamy, shoe-gazey, perfect for summer.

Click this to listen. Enjoy the sun.
