WIERD Presents a Very Rare Evening with TOG!

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

This week WIERD proudly welcomes Tog for a live performance at midnite! Hailing from Bergen, Norway this fantastic 7 piece dark synth outfit has been making some serious cold waved mania of late up in the Fjord-encrusted Norsk synth world, as their 1st single 'Sansen' spent a good part of 2010 on the Norwegian pop charts. More info is below on Bill P. from Brooklyn Vegan's feature on the band yesterday, come on down tonite to feel the pleasures of what the world that brought the darkest guitar driven black metal music of the last 20 years does with a big pile of cold synths...and how the hell we're gonna fit 7 artists on the WIERD stage, its gonna be a great one!

Also this evening I'm very excited to welcome back as guest DJs three of our favorite San Francisco based heavy hitters in the synth/wave world - the great Josh Cheon from Dark Entries Records, Nihar, who has been the man behind the all-important Warm Leatherette party active in SF since 2008, and of course our beloved Mr. Phil Maier aka Goutroy from the venerable 'A Viable Commercial Blog' site who recently defected to BK to continually blow our minds week after week with his arsenal of obscure Very Rarities as he did last wed. after which Humanbeast wrecked the place. Josh will also be spinning the opening reception tonite for the 'self-publish, be happy' opening at Float Gallery which should also be a great event as well: http://www.darkentriesrecords.com/ http://goutroy.blogspot.com/ http://www.facebook.com/warmleatherettesf

The WIERD will return next week with my new long-underdue(...or overdone?...or soon-to-be-undone?...or who he fuck cares why should anyone?...lovely) discourse on the undeniable fact that Emoticons are no longer confined to the virtual world of the web, but have become actual... I met one this week. It was a dark day. ...believe me, you don't want to hear about it now its horrible. OMG! :)

Josh Cheon, Nihar, and Goutroy Spin the Pleasures of Norwegian Electronics!
