Live Music: Bassment Beats/New World Show Presents !¡YAKI PA’YAH!¡

Live Music: Bassment Beats/New World Show Presents !¡YAKI PA’YAH!¡

“…uniting musicians, visual artists, and dancers from around the world to bridge the gaps between movements ‘from here to there’ through bass.”

Bassment Beats and New World Show from WESU 88.1FM will host a new monthly series: !¡YAKI PA’YAH!¡ (pronunciation guide = de aquí para allá, but faster) an event that unites musicians, visual artists, and dancers from around the world to bridge the gaps between the various movements ‘from here to there’ through bass.

From the barrios to the burbs; the condos to the conjuntos; the high-rises to the hilltops- there is one thing all people have in common: a desire to dance to the sounds of bass rhythms. It’s what makes us undulate while it modulates.

This first installment of !¡YAKI PA’YAH!¡ stars Geko Jones from Brooklyn, NY. The Puertolombian (Puerto Rican & Colombian) tropical bass specialist is a seminal member of the Dutty Artz crew. He is also one of the co-founders of the world-famous “Qué Bajo?!” party in New York City.

DJ LOKASH, your resident yaki, will be making his last public Connecticut performance of 2012 with an eclectic set of bass-heavy transnational sounds featuring a very special appearance by Lady Elizabeth.

Kilbourne from New Jersey will also be dropping his latest Philly Bass creations as well as supporting his Faye Reagan EP on Rebel Records from earlier this year.

There will be additional special guests along with visuals by You B (the Stepkids),, Geoff Rasco, Channel1 and others. Plus, giveaways by SkateShopSwap and Redscroll Records (that’s us).

Club INT (map)
16 Broad Street
New Britain, CT

8:00pm – All Ages – $20

Sunn O))) is an American drone metal/experimental band based in New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA and formed in 1998. The band’s core members consist of Stephen O’Malley (Khanate, Burning Witch, SARIN, Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine, Lotus Eaters, Ginnungagap, Thorr’s Hammer, Fungal Hex, KTL, Æthenor, Gravetemple) and Greg Anderson (Goatsnake, Thorr’s Hammer, Burning Witch, Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine, Brotherhood, Engine Kid, False Liberty, Burial Chamber Trio, Ascend). The band was formed as a tribute of sorts to Earth, another very heavy band noted as the pioneers of drone metal. G. Stuart Dahlquist currently of Asva and ex-Burning Witch performed bass on The Grimmrobe Demos and ØØ Void.

Dead In The Dirt
Dead in the Dirt was formed by guitarist Blake Connally (ex final expression, me and him call it us) in Dec. 2008. This project did not see much progress occur in the first two years until the addition of drummer Hank Pratt (foundation, daymark, skull kingdom). Bo Orr (Mosaic) would then join on bass and provide vocals as well. Their debut release “Vold”was self released in summer 2010. Their follow up release was a Tour EP for the band’s first west coast tour with Foundation. Their third release will be a 10 song 7” released by Southern Lord Recordings in September 2011.

Dead in the Dirt also played “here” (at the secret location near Redscroll) last September – it was a powerfully loud and fast good time.

Vold e.p. by dead in the dirt

Rick will also be playing records between bands (fun fact: Rick booked the first sunnO))) show with Manic Productions). Incidental music for talking over and making conversation about that is relevant in some way to the bands playing will be played (read that clunky sentence 5x fast).

Club INT is a new (a revitalized Sports Palace) club in New Britain and is very promising for the future of live music in CT.  The sound system is impressive and I know that Manic is bringing even more than what they already have there to accommodate sunnO)))’s requests completely! Here’s a shot of its insides with As I Lay Dying playing:

The Redscroll mobile distro will be making a rare appearance here.  It may be the only one of the year! We’ll be bringing plenty of metal (very focused selection), but if you want something specific brought to this please let us know ( is the best way).
