We are excited that this week brings the return of Purple Rhinestone Eagle to Seattle. They were amazing at last years Escalator Fest and if ya haven’t seen em yet ya really ought to. What’s more they’ll be accompanied by their Portland brothers Eternal Tapestry who also blew everybody’s minds out at last years fest, along with Audiwasska Travelers (awesome new project from former members of Treetarantula) and of course ye olde (of Seattle, nottobeconfusedthoseother) Emeralds.

Thee Portable Shrines Light Show Society will supply visuals and hypnogogic apparitions.

Thursday April 1st at the Comet Tavern.

EMERALDS, PURPLE RHINESTONE EAGLE, ETERNAL TAPESTRY, AUDIWASKKA TRAVELERS

geysers of sound

2010.03.28

Just like Old Faithful the Japanese free-form space rock travelers Acid Mothers Temple can always be counted on to spew enormous geysers of pure sound-vibrational ecstasy on a regular basis as they will surely be doing tonight at the Sunset in Ballard. They will be joined by the earth-shaking and relatively new phenomena known as OGOD.

Surely an occasion most worthy of your attendance…

Hey kiddies, before you go see the new Runaways movie check the latest brilliant piece of audio garbage from the legendary rock super-villain and trash collector Kim Fowley.  There’s not really a word for what this man does…

ufo at the disco

This is apt to make one long for simpler times when all people worried about was rocking out at the disco and glowing flying saucers made of laser beams flying through the palm trees…

“The dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley”

2010.03.13

And now another spirited rant from Mr. John Gillanders, here’s his latest installment of “Extra Dimensional”…

If you were to think of our species as united cosmically as one being, which is something that most of our religions and prominent neuronauts have been telling us since the beginning of what we perceive as time – plotlines begin to emerge that don’t necessarily involve self destruction. In not listening to these viewpoints, we’ve separated ourselves from our own eternal nature and the essence of time. We’re kind of like an idiot savant that can program the shit out of a computer but couldn’t get a date if his life depended on it. Another way of putting it is that we’re becoming increasingly and dangerously unbalanced as an individual; a work-a-holic who’s career success has blinded him to the fact that his personal life is in shambles. This unbalance has produced some hilarious and mind blowingly horrific enchantments, but we need to diversify our science now more than ever. Pleasure rather than violence. Cooperation rather than competition. Self love rather than self hatred. Biology rather than synthetics. DMT rather than prozac. Read more…

mars hill church firmly aligns itself with genocidal scumbags throughout the universe

2010.03.02

Apparently a feeling of being in touch with nature, plants, trees and animals is one of the worst things Mark Driscoll can conceive of. “I own two entertainment centers and three Tivos…” So blinded by his own worldliness, he seems to identify more strongly with the napalm happy planet-rapers of Avatar. I guess that might be what you’d expect from a religion that confuses the god of nature with the devil. Still the circular logic is utterly incomprehensible. Let’s see- Satan wants you to connect with a lie and humans having a connection to the divine is Satanic… oh, nevermind.  I guess the dull saps who attend Mars Hill church become so confused all they can do is throw money. Dude is getting rich off a bunch of suckers who aren’t old enough to remember Jim and Tammy and the televangelist scams of the 80′s. This stuff still works??
Mark Driscoll you are a sad, ugly little man…
