Come get even more Distorted this Wednesday 11/28 during the Lunar Full Moon Eclipse! It’s the 2nd installment of the bi-monthly {{DISTORTIONS}} Psych DJ Night at the LoFi. Resident DJs Explorateur and Veins have been burning up the decks lately with some of the most finely curated and far-out sounds you are likely to hear on this backwoods planet. Alien soundtracks, acid rock, psych funk, vintage electronic futurism and uncategorizable delights will pass through your ear holes all night. This time they will be joined by DJ One Eye of Portable Shrines (who used to bring you ye olde Wednesday night freak-outs at The Living Room). One Eye’s Portable Shrines Light Show will be in full effect as well so prepare to have your orbs dazzled by synergistic 4-D light mandalas.

9:00PM-2:00AM 21+ The LoFi 429 Eastlake Ave East, Seattle

Sand Into Rain


Eternal Tapestry – Sand Into Rain from Thrill Jockey Records on Vimeo.

Video for a “pop” song from the new Eternal Tapestry album “A World Out of Time” on Thrill Jockey Records. Kinda reminds me of Land of the Lost. Watch out for Sleestacks.
Dewey from E.Tap plays solo under the name Plankton Wat and the vid below is from his latest album “Spirits”. Super nice jam.

Czech New Wave Masterpiece Daisies at the Grand Illusion


This week the Grand Illusion Cinema
is screening a new 35mm print of Vera Chytilová’s 1966 film Daisies. Called “one of the most anarchic films of all time”, Daisies is a mind blowing and hilarious experience that always makes me hungry and glad to be alive.
