Don’t miss this last chance to see the current set of songs Montreal’s longest lasting post-punk band The American Devices have been playing around (spanning 3 decades reflecting material off their CD released last year on Grenadine Records) cuz they’re putting them to rest after this show in order to complete a set of all-new songs & won’t be performing again until the new material is ready.
Devices singer/guitarist Rick Trembles provided the visuals for Bunco Unction & is also cartoonist/author of weekly Montreal Mirror comic-strip/movie review column Motion Picture Purgatory. Singer/guitarist Rob Labelle is also a published writer of fiction, bassist Andre Asselin moonlights for various jazz combos (contact him for weddings), & drummer Howard Chackowicz is a Harvey Award nominated cartoonist & radio personality on CBC’s Wire Tap. Both Howard & Andre also play in Nutsak & Bug-Eyed Monster.
Opening up are newcomers Nightwood who will be performing their first official show. According to Nightwood; after just a few short weeks, they have created their own brand of Inner-City story-telling rock music deeply influenced by a collective DIY vision where “projects” will be at the forefront. Nightwood is comprised of Amber Goodwyn, Erin Ross, & Famous Eric (previously of Grenadine Records). Amber Goodwyn also produces the local smutzine Lickety Split & hosts Audio Smut on CKUT radio 90.3 FM.
To celebrate this momentous event American Devices made a brand new music video for all to see on http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gifYouTube featuring one of the songs they’ll be playing at the show; Bunco Unction. This video includes giant reptiles, aliens from outer space, castles, glass-bottomed boats, claymation, 2-D animation, vintage super-8 footage, Napoleon hats, & of course members of The American Devices.
