WIERD Presents a Very Rare live performance by CLAPS!

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

This weeks WIERD is in honor of everyone who enjoys troubleshooting' when there is nothing wrong...also known to those of us who enjoy the hobbyistic pleasures of 'A-Mature' psychoanalysis 101...pathos. Or perhaps more luxuriously...sucking ones thumb...ahhh... :)

And speaking of the Very Rare pleasures of the famously underaVReciated thumb, the phonetico-corporeal articulation of tonite's performers simply could not occur without one - as WIERD is proud to present the NYC live debut of CLAPS from Minneapolis for a live performance at midnight!!! Along with the likes of YOU and Moon Patrol, Claps are one of the best new minimal synth bands from the frozen, dusty ice planes of the midwest and evidence the analog electronic infection is slowly seeping west. I highly encourage everyone to check out their fantastic debut CDep just released on the Guilt Ridden Pop label, we have copies available in the WIERDshop, and the band will have them for sale this evening, their trax 'Fold' and 'Fireworks' are 2 of the best of 2010 thus far, come on down to hear them alive and colder than ever tonite! www.myspace.com/clapsus

Otherwise this past I was happy to receive word Home Sweet Home will officially be getting a major facelift and a proper new soundsystem installed at long last. The club is midway through the transition over to the new PA tonite which will be up and on fire in 2 weeks.

Lastly and very importantly many of you may have heard the great Market Hotel was sadly shut down this past weekend and in the interim, Friday evening's 'Wierd Presents:' show featuring live performances by Xeno & Oaklander, Led Er Est, Claps, and Epee du Bois has been moved to Monster Island in Williamsburg(128 River St. at Metropolitan Ave.). This will be a sendoff party for X&O and LeEst who will both be off on a 3 week European tour beginning next Tuesday in London and finishing 3 weeks later in Rome, hope everyone can make it out to wish them well on the VRourney ahead. This is the first full-scale WIERD tour, many years in the making...needless to say...VR.

Pieter, Anarexia, and Miz Margo spin the Quiet Intricacies of the One-Handed Clap...
