Self Released (2018)
Bindi-Eye is an experimental/ psychedelic/ post-punk project out of Chandler from the mind of Zach Wubbena (Sun Conscious) along a few familiar friends on the newest effort, Soapbox Synthesis.
After surviving and enjoying the hell out of day one it was back to the Plaza to start off day two catching Noise which was great because they were awesome on the big stage the day before. After melting a bit by the pool it was time to head over to the festival and get things going.
Negative Nancys were first up on the stage and like I have said many times it is great getting to see bands that I have never had a chance to see or are new to me. Loved being able to check them out and I hope they make it to AZ sometime soon. Be Like Max were up next and these dudes know how to work a crowd with their Ska/Punk sound and the singers desire to get as close to the crowd as possible. Nothing gets a crowd going like that kind of thing. Night Birds took the stage next and kept that energy going, these guys are so good live, seriously I hope to catch them again in the near future. If you get a chance to then be sure you do.
After a year off AZ KAOS was back at work covering, and enjoying, this yearly gathering in Sin City now on its 18th installment. Like every year before this was a long weekend of meeting up with friends, making new ones, buying to much merch and getting to shot some great bands.
“That motherfucker played a ball of string…”
I met Crank Sturgeon at his merch table, where he was selling CDs, field tape recorders, and home-made contact mics. An older fellow on tour with other experimental music-weirdo partners in crime The Haters, Styrofoam Sanchez, and Matt Taggart, Crank was at the Trunk Space on April 20th to perform as part of a night of Dadaist/Fluxus/noise/weird shit/performance art/music.
