WIERD Presents a Very Rare performance by DOGPOP!

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Tonite WIERD is proud to host the first night of TESCO USA's 10 Year Anniversary Festival, featuring the US debut of DOGPOP(feat. members of Genocide Organ) from Germany! Dogpop traverse the sounds of classic minimal electronics, old school industrial and Neue Deutsche Welle, and should make for a Krautastically celebratory evening to kickoff four nights that will showcase an ultra solid, who's who line-up of artists, DJs, labelheads and writers from the worlds of power electronics, Noise, Martial industrial, Neofolk, and Dark Ambient music that have populated the ever-expansive Tesco universe the past decade. The fest will run through the weekend in various venues in NYC and end in Philly on sat., and a full line-up of all activities and concerts is up over at Tesco central, along with a teaser for the forthcoming God Blast America DVD that will be available to commemorate this momentous occasion.:

In addition to all the incredible bands soon to sexually assault your welcoming, pleasure-starved bodies and minds with a thunderous onslaught of Industrial Darkness this weekend, I'd like to suggest that above all this festival should truly be seen as a tribute to WIERD's longtime, forever-beloved ally, and the curator of this excellent fest - the ever-humble, lovely Empress of Tesco USA herself Ms. Jane Elizabeth. Jane's amazing efforts, passion and tireless love of this specific music so important to so many of us have almost single-handedly kept this world alive and available in the US for the past 10 years. Long before noise was re-energized and got back on its feet in the mid-naughts, Jane was organizing countless shows and DJ nights, flying bands in from Europe to play the US for the first time, and helping so many triumphantly taboo unknown artists from here and abroad to be heard, and her spirit should be an inspiration to fans of underground music everywhere. Back in the dark days of the WIERD when show after show went by, year after year, with just a handful of courageous VR loners on hand in support late into the night, Jane was always there in every way. So everyone please come on out this evening as we all raise a glass to the Queen of NYC Industrial music and beyond...Jane darling, this WIERD's for you, Very Rare indeed!
