Maineline the WIERD with TABOO and ANCESTRAL DIET with DJs Jeralyn and Frankie Teardrop!
February 15, 2012
Few shows in recent memory come more enshrouded in mystery than this evening's WIERD holds in store. Thus far we have but a scattered handful of darkly shining VRagments word of mouth style from the likes of the Red Light District and the Rosenkopf crew's seasonal Solstice pilgrimages up to the great black North to go on, to piece together a brittle, private image of Maine's isolationist electronic punk underground. Tales of complex occult-driven ritualistic performances deep in the deliciously seething blood of the woods, often lasting days, so varied from one to the next ITs quite impossible to convey, and with scantly any internet presence to speak of(gasp...)...and just a few charmed beholders in attendance beyond the eyes of the earthly elements fortunate enough to gaze onto the mise-en-scène unfolding.
Something tells me a New England's Hidden Reverse is congealing, and it was with pleasure we recently heard rumours they're comin out of the forest, and hitting the cold road to seep into the bulbously welcoming veins of our Very Rare World... So tonite WIERD Maineline's the darkness as we welcome the double-billed intensity of TABOO and ANCESTRAL DIET for a seamless live performance at midnite! I hope everyone can make out for this one, you're in for the frighteningly wild ride of a lifetime.

For those of you who scored a copy of WIERD Presents: Coldwaves and Minimal Electronics from a few years ago you know the melody, one so infectious certain shadowy types have rightly perhaps dubbed it the "Freebird" of minimal synth, VR.
