weekend gig update

Two shows for good causes! Two shows with Amateur Takes Control! Two shows I’ll be missing because I’ll be running about the jungles of P. Tekong all weekend!

*SCAPE Confessions presents: YOU KNOW, YOU CARE.
feat. Amateur Takes Control with Lunar Node and Silhouette

Saturday, 4th Sep
8pm - 10.30pm
*SCAPE Lab, *SCAPE Youth Centre, 113 Somerset Road

The recent news story of a family’s sole breadwinner killed in a tragic freak accident moved one young band into wanting to use their music to help the family in need.

From that desire to help arose You Know, You Care, a special Confessions initiative by homegrown band Amateur Takes Control. Alongside their friends and special guests Silhouette and Lunar Node, the band believes in using music to raise awareness of the needs of those around us, and wants to encourage young people just like them to use the talents they have to help others.

Tickets at $16 can be purchased at the door. Each ticket comes with a sticker/button pack!

Organised by Amateur Takes Control and *SCAPE. Supported by KittyWu Records. Presented by NYC. Facebook events page here.

Lunar Node’s “Exploring Unknown Territory” EP launch ticket/bookmark thingy. 167/300… should’ve reserved my ticket early
The CD packaging is totally awesome too — a shiny silver sleeve holds a grayscale print, folded into a sort of origami pocket with the CD in it, which actually unfolds into a large poster of the aurora/space-y design on the ticket. I can’t be bothered to photograph everything with my shitty phone so if you want a look+feel you should buy the EP :P

Lunar Node - Times Escape. Pretty archetypal guitar-driven post-rock, but it’s a spectacular first impression nonetheless. Can’t wait for the EP launch! Apologies to Dan and friends for ripping it off their MySpace — if you enjoyed this please hop along and make some play counts where it counts.
