About this Event

Behavior is three-piece band from Los Angeles whose roots in hardcore have evolved through deft art-punk and into pop asymmetries. This concert celebrates the release of their 3rd LP Spirits & Embellishments on the venerated Los Angeles label Post Present Medium. Key takeaways from the album’s announcement include thoughts on 1) Their collaboration: ”…a shifting ad hoc agreement, organized around a permissive sensibility that is anchored to consistency of image rather than genre myopia.” and 2) Songs on this new record: “They were conceived with irreverence for the distinction between Crass and The Rolling Stones, to leverage the evaporating space of antagonism between first wave post-punk and its commercially unambivalent counterparts.”

Whether whispered or howled, her voice swims in a sea of drenched guitar. An electric folk music that sometimes seems of another time, until it creeps up on you that that time is now. Syko Friend – the solo project of Los Angeles based artist, musician, poet, and publisher Sophie Weil – riffs on intimacy and immediacy. A new full length release will coming in 2020 on Post Present Medium.

Via actions at noise shows and PAs at later-night raves, Michael DeMaio makes precarity music, His hardware based jams are grounded in barren stretches of distort, with a roughness present in his semi-kiltered rhythmic discursions as well as the infectious and insistent beats “for the floor.” DeMaio has released on Opal Tapes and Music for Downers, with more coming shortly.
