Farewell Show for Nirantha: Language Barrier / La Cerca / Crayola Daydream / Alex Benson

One of The Trunk Space's most beloved volunteers is moving away, so we're giving her a big send off! Featuring:

Language Barrier: Sadcore piano punk! Listened to too much American Football as a teenager. Let's cry together.

Crayola Daydream: Surprise new project, featuring members of post-punk heartthrobs Instructions. They won't be playing Instructions songs but you should listen to them anyway.

Alex Benson: The partymaker from Confetti Club and Rough Tough Dynamite! Dare you not to dance.

La Cerca: From Tucson. This will be their Phoenix CD release show! La Cerca have taken many stylistic detours over the years, but their latest, Sunrise for Everyone, is where they bring all their disparate strands together. Daydream Nation-esque maelstroms of expressionist guitar, expressive lyrics abstracted and refracted, pulled together with unforgettable pop hooks into a rock ‘n’ roll body. Fronted by Andrew Gardner, symphonically arranged with a multitude of players, recorded and mixed at Tucson’s esteemed Waterworks Studios (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, RL Burnside, Sonic Youth), the result is an abundance of instant classics that range from sunny blue-eyed soul had Galaxie 500 performed it to indie rock’s early ‘90s golden-age of reclaiming traditional rock ‘n’ roll styles to instrumental typhoons full of exaltation and destruction found in the wildest free jazz.
