Plate XII Records Presents: SINISTER SOLSTICE

[[$7 AT THE DOOR. NO PRESALES.]]

A night of sonic darkness, specially curated for the longest night of the year.......
Come celebrate the death and rebirth of the sun with some of the southeast's finest acts of musical malice!
INCLUDING...

Pyre
Pyre combine elements of thrash, punk, and classic metal into a rollicking good ol' time. Their songs leap and crackle with energy, and their riffs and vocal melodies stay in your head long after listening.
Their newest release, the mini-masterpiece of southern metal..."SWAMP WITCH" is available for you to listen to right here:
https://pyregvl.bandcamp.com/album/swamp-witch

And here's Pyre ripping up The Atlantic back in January!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLEzz47FyxQ

Bound for the Ground
Bound for the Ground is an occult sonic collective. A southern tent revival of nefarious means and purposes. Moon soaked blues meets dirt covered death worship.
Their most recent release, "Professional As Hell" is available for you to listen to here:
https://boundfortheground.bandcamp.com/album/professional-as-hell

Here's some video evidence of a Bound for the Ground performance in Sacramento...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT1445BdxoQ

VITREOUS
Vitreous is avant garde black metal. Their roots as a symphonic black metal band have flourished into a new...stranger entity. Elements of jazz, prog, and psychedelia combine with grim black metal to create a wholly unique darkness.
Their symphonic black metal material can be heard here:
https://vitreous666.bandcamp.com/album/once-offered-the-greatest-of-light

VItreous will be debuting their BRAND NEW material at Sinister Solstice!

Rot In Coffins
Rot In Coffins is grindy, blackened, and HEAVY AS HELL. This is metal that rips and shreds like a razor edged chainsaw. With monster riffs, searing leads, and vicious vocals that manage to be accessible and memorable yet outright savage and brief.
Hear their track "UNMAKER" here:
https://rotincoffins.bandcamp.com/track/unmaker

Hear and see them destroy The Atlantic here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv3X2QJdg-g

Thunderclap
Thunderclap combine elements of doom and sludge with a classic rock sensibility to create their very own brand of southern heavy. Tectonic sized bass and drums meet psych-tinged, blues soaked guitar that screams and roars. Vocals howl into smoke filled aether. CRUSHING is the word.
Hear Thunderclap here:
https://thunderclap666.bandcamp.com/releases

Hear and see Thunderclap level Loosey's a few years back...

THURS 11.15 - Bit Brigade performs The Legend of Zelda

42535571_2060873223957498_4228626930498273280_o.jpg

Bit Brigade performs rock covers of full NES game soundtracks as their gamer speedruns the game live on stage. 
On November 15th at the Atlantic in Gainesville, FL, they will be performing The Legend of Zelda.

w/ Velocirapture & The Mermers

Doors: 9PM
Show: 9:30PM
Cover: $10
Tickets: https://www.showclix.com/event/bitbrigadeatatlantic

Bit Brigade (11:10)
Velocirapture (10:20)
The Mermers (9:30)

"When was the last time you attended a live music performance with a genuine element of risk involved? And no, going to a Gwar show with a white t-shirt on doesn't count. When Bit Brigade takes the stage your mind will frantically oscillate between "Oh! Agh!! Please don't die!!" and "YES! He's doing it!!" Combining the dread and daring of a live video game speed run with the spot-on technique of a live band covering the musical accompaniment to everything you're seeing on-screen in real time, Bit Brigade will have you swinging between the two mediums. From thrashing about to live renditions of your favorite stage themes, fingers yearning to the sky in a rock 'n roll parody of sea anemones seeming to silently plead, "Please, feed us more fretboard pyrotechnics!," to being locked in stock-still rapture as the infallible maestro of the d-pad, Noah McCarthy, takes on the final boss and risks his video game life under the threat of intense peer scorn (or the reward of night-long glory and a credits score). No matter the outcome, Bit Brigade must play on until the deed is done - which it always is - on the first (and last) try. Once Noah’s NES buzzes on, there's no turning back." - Metalhead Mike of The Shizz, summer 2011

SAT 10.20 - Over Easy & Friends feat. Christian Martin - 10pm

 Over Easy Creative presents  Christian Martin    Dirtybird  -  Trippy Ass Technologies  The Atlantic + Arcade Bar  Saturday October 20 2017   Over Easy Creative returns for a family reunion with a very special guest… Christian Martin!   Since 1995, Christian Martin has explored electronic music from one end of the earth to the other; from full-moon parties in the deserts of California to the thumping, dark corners of the London club scene. Christian followed his love for spleen-rattling bass to San Francisco in 2000, where he met up with the now legendary dirtybird crew. The dirtybird BBQ was the brainchild of the four original members: Christian & his brother Justin Martin, and friends Claude VonStroke and Worthy. They had a personal mission to change the landscape of San Francisco house music by throwing an epic free party in the park, based on their new signature sound.  In 2003, with nothing to lose and everything to gain, Christian bought a massive yet necessary sound system. This set the standard for a new era of die-hard dedicated DIY producers, all with productions based on heavy bass-lines, smiling faces and dance floor delights.  Ten years later the original dirtybird crew remains fully intact and as close knit as ever - traversing the globe, releasing records, and throwing the best parties in their wake.

ABOUT: DETROIT HOUSE GUESTS
The Detroit House Guests project concept was conceived in the early 2000s and became a reality in 2014 after receiving a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation grant. The project was based on the "visual" artist residency model but for musicians. Each musician would come for up to a three week period with the parameter that we live, work and collaborate together. The results - a total anthropological sound experiment and a full length album. ADULT. is the Detroit duo Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller. They played their first live show together in Germany in 1997 under the name Artificial Material. In early '98 they released their first 12" under the moniker Plasma Co. Later that year, they released their first 12" under the name ADULT. Currently, they have released six albums and 19 EPs or singles on Ghostly International, Thrill Jockey, Clone Records as well as on their own label Ersatz Audio, (which currently has over 40 releases since it was founded in '95) They have remixed over 20 acts as well, including Tuxedomoon, John Foxx, Death in Vegas and Pet Shop Boys (for Moog Music).

Kuperus and Miller also make sculpture, paintings, films, photographs, performances, videos and installations. They strive to intersect the lines between art and audio. They have exhibited their work at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY), Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh), Detroit Institute of Arts (Detroit), MOMAS (Saitama, Japan) and Centre d'art contemporain de Meymac (FR). They have shown their film The Three Grace(s) triptych at places such as Anthology Film Archives (NY), Distrital Film Festival (Mexico City) and Grey Area for Art and Technology (SF).
