it was a groovy happening

viennagramSay what you will about local auteur (RIFC) Mike Ryan, he throws one helluva party. Last night he and the lovely Cat had a few friends over to Studio Blue in Riverside (I’m pretty sure he had permission). Normally a recording and production studio/performance venue etc. etc., for a few hours it was taken over by a happy crew of loonies who danced like mad to The Viennagram. Sounds like (in their own words) “Tom Waits played backwards… sex-cat mating calls… underwater noise nostalgia…” that sort of thing. But that doesn’t begin to describe how dance-able this music is. Fronted by their weirdly charismatic drummer, the band also found time to work on their painting.
