WIERD Presents a Very Rare live performance by NITE JEWELL!

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

This week WIERD welcomes the Very Rare sounds of NITE JEWEL from minimal electronic Los Angeles for a live performance at midnite! this will be the first in a series of 3 excellent new frozen hot LA minimal synth bands to hit the WIERD stage in the next 6 weeks, soon to be followed by the great Frank Alpine(coming to the WIERD March 3rd) and Tearist(March 24th), all of whom recently joined us at the first annual L.A. WIERD Festival 2009 this past November. Ramona and co. have crafted a truly idiosyncratic sound in the night jewel crown, combining the sounds of classic minimal synth with those of both mid-period Italodisco and 70s US/UK soft rock, its quite unlike anything synthworthy out there right now, so slide on in on the JEWEL-encrusted Angelino ice and get Very Rare to-NITE!

I'm proud to finally be able to say the WIERD will be making a long overdue return to the continent this March and April! Xeno & Oaklander will be joined on stage in Paris by our beloved French allies Frank(just Frank) Thursday evening March 11th, and X&O will play a second show Sat. night March 13th at the great 'Nullzeit' Party inside the mysterious WORM in Rotterdam, The Netherlands: http://agenda.wormweb.nl/agenda.php?id=3129 where Sean and Liz will be joined by our old friends Twilight Ritual from Belgium as well as Dutch minimal electronic legends Das Ding! The full-scale Xeno & Oaklander/Led Er Est European tour will officially commence on April 13th in London and take both bands on an 18 date tour through the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Holland, Germany, France and Italy! Many more details to come on all these shows in the next few weeks, rest assured the WIERD is coming to the theatre in you at long last!

The next release on Wierd Records will be the long awaited debut LP from Frank(just Frank) due out in April! The band did their first ever interview this past week in Paris for Rockfort.com:
In case anyone missed their fantastic show last year at the weekly party here is the live video for your froide-tastic afternoon pleasure:

Thanks to everyone who packed out the WIERD World last week to catch a VRlimpse of the first new MARTIAL CANTEREL trax from his epic opus of an LP forthcoming later this year from WIERD, as Sean played them all live for the first time! Our in-house videological pleasureseeker Jimi Patterson just posted a nice vignette of one of these killer songs that shall remained eminently unnamed for now:
