DAIKAIJU, BOUND & BURIED, ROUND EYE

daikaiju

 $4 Dos Equis, $5 Heineken Drafts from 11 PM to close. Free entry. 21+ only.

 Who is the Daikaiju??? Premium action heroes deliver most high rocket music! Special reverb skill combo for full impact! Loud sonic boom for earful pleasure!Beautiful radiation of hyper-dimensional springy sound creates divine psychic wind for your special protection.

Bound & Buried are no strangers to the ways of rock and roll. Three east coasters and a Chicagoan, B&B have spent the last year honing a sound founded on Surf, Rock-a-Billy and Hardcore. Featuring members of Boy Sets Fire, Lugosi, Pumps and Habits, their roots are taken to a more ruthless and dynamic level. Never stepping back or falling forward, the band delivers a sense of attitude, urgency and realism that has become a much needed wake up call and one needing to be heard.

Round Eye is the sexiest, hairiest and loudest band in China! The freakish malformed spawn of doo-wop, punk and free-jazz, we seek to help audiences across the globe ascend into a nirvana of noise, weirdness and sax-powered mayhem. With a psychotic live act that may or may not feature nudity/body paint/destruction/degeneracy this band is not for the faint of heart and not to be missed.

Yonatan Gat Band

 $3 PBR’s from 11 PM to close. Free entry. 21+ only

A masterful guitarist, Gat recently won Village Voice’s “Best Guitarist of 2013″ with a sound he describes as “homeless between the Middle East and New York.” Gat’s first single, “Escorpião” off of his full-length album, “Iberian Passage”, to be released by Joyful Noise, is one that easily transports the listener to an exotic land. It effortlessly encompasses the very core of Gat; the free-spirited intricateness of his worldly influences, while carrying the raw intensity he sported in Monotonix. His second single ‘Kotonou’ is a continuation of these themes and can be heard at Brooklyn Vegan.
