Caught 5 bands last night at my favorite Floristree Space in Baltimore. Man, these marathon shows are tiring. I didn't get home until 2am. Lichens started things. This is a side project of TV on the Radio's Rob Lowe. He did a lot of effects pedals distortion of his voice and guitar - very ambient.
This gradually blended into the next act, Pit Er Pat from Chicago. There sound was very nice and poppy with female vocals accompanied by electronics and a little dub-noise instrumentals. I really enjoyed them.
Third performing was Daniel Higgs from the band Lungfish. He played acoustic guitar and jews harp with a lot of distortion and feedback, and his voice was rough and smoky. I liked this, but I was starting to feel the length of the show by this time.
Fourth up was locals WZT Hearts, with Floristree Space resident Jason Urick. They combined electronic sounds with a drum kit- really nice and driving. I liked their energy.
Finally, headliners, Excepter hit the stage at about 1am. They sounded great- really cool electronics. For some reason the singer reminded me of Leon Redbone- the hat?!?
