F-SPACE and Drop Black Sky
StudioZ - 314 11th Street @ Folsom
Come for Happy Hour drink specials!
Drop Black Sky is a sonorous, sonically intense mesh of ethereal vocals, electronic programming, and ambient guitars.
"We've been writing new material and pushing our equipment to new levels in regards to sound-manipulation, digital programming, looping and sampling. We are very excited about the direction the new material is taking and look forward to performing it."
F-SPACE is an extreme experimental pyro-industrial art-punk rock-band project by Mobilization.com founders Scot Jenerik (23five.org) and Ethan Port (Savage Republic), with Aleph Kali (Chrome) drumming with the ferocity of a runaway locomotive. The result conjures an apocalyptic, feral, destructive trance state implying a catastrophic act of nature, a march through the desert on the path to war, or an offender's mental state during a crime of passion.
Here is the Bay Guardian review of F-Space.
"Then came the moment I'd been waiting for. F-Space battered the unsuspecting audience with a wall of noise. Port's instrumentation on an electric 12-string maintained the breakneck speed and ominous tones of early Savage Republic. He'd loop a string of notes into a mixer, then switch guitars, or forsake them for a homemade instrument created out of two thick metal springs stretched along the length of a four-foot-long segment of pipe, which he alternately beat on and picked up and let drop to the floor.
Jenerik used drumsticks and even a violin bow to elicit the most raw and, at times, excruciating sounds from a similar instrument propped on a metal sawhorse. Kali added the energy of a runaway locomotive on drums.
The result was apocalyptic: the music summoned a feral, destructive trance state that implied a catastrophic act of nature, a march through the desert on the path to war, or the offender's mental state during a crime of passion."
