Ultraam / Xaddax / Skryptor

$8 | 18+ | 8PM Doors / 9PM Show

Ultraam is a free-improvising, psychedelic, noise-rock, spazz-jazz band featuring members of Mercury Rev, Chron Turbine, Snowflake and various nefarious secret societies and self help groups come together to make joyful noise.

Xaddax is the spazz-rock outfit of Nick Sakes (Dazzling Killmen) and Chrissy Sakes. Working with a mad-scientist electroacoustic drum set-up — huge toms, no cymbals, various sample-triggering pads and a foot-controlled synth pedal — Rossettie pounds out lurching math-disco rhythms, haloed in scuzzy sci-fi FX. Sakes responds with perversely anthemic riffs and mantra-like shouts, resulting in a kind of hot-wired hardcore — like Devo gone nastily dystopic.
