EFRIM MANUEL MENUCK (OF GY!BE/THEE SILVER MT ZION)
Efrim Manuel Menuck returns with his second album Pissing Stars, the brilliantly intense follow-up to his 2011 solo debut Plays “High Gospel” and the first new material with Menuck as central songwriter and vocalist since 2014’s acclaimed Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything from his chamber-punk-rock band Thee Silver Mt. Zion.
The Montréal-based co-founder of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver Mt. Zion has much-deserved cult status among fans of political punk, post-rock and avant-noise songcraft. Menuck celebrates 25 years of unflinching and uncompromising sonic output with Pissing Stars, wherein he launches acerbic darts, impassioned salvos and fragile flowers into gusts of noise-battered song built around pulsing maximalist electronics and drone, composed on modular synthesizer and guitar, shot through with alternately plaintive, chilling, often processed vocals. Pissing Stars is Menuck at his most vulnerable and his most adventurous – with a timely narrative framework that only he could conjure.

Olympia experimental musician Kevin Doria is a member of Growing, Hiss Tracks (with David Bryant of GY!BE) and records solo under the monikers Total Life and KGD. He'll be opening this show with a solo set as well as performing with Efrim.
