Shoegaze Extravaganza With Chapterhouse At LPR Tonight
It's 1991 all over again.
Chapterhouse headlines a incredible lineup over at LPR tonight. The band was part of the short-lived but incredibly awesome shoegaze movement, along with My Bloody Valentine, Ride, Slowdive and the like, and their influence on more recent indie rock and electronic music is pretty massive. Swirly guitars, woozy vocals, effects pedals are alive and well - you need only look at the openers, which mine various shoegaze styles. A Place to Bury Strangers cranks up its amps to a screech, while Ulrich Schnauss creates churning digital dreamscapes, and Soundpool entwines its 'gazing with ethereal female vocals.
Tickets are, alas, sold out, but to those who made it, stay dry!
For everyone else, here's Chapterhouse's "Mesmerise."
Videos from the openers after the jump.
A Place to Bury Strangers - "To Fix The Gash In Your Head"
