NoViCE's first annual Pride Week concludes tomorrow night with another show in the Mug, featuring High Places, Lucky Dragons, and Pictureplane.
Here's what NoVice has to say about the bands:
HIGH PLACES (http://myspace.com/hellohighplaces)
"Classic indie pop re-envisioned with beatz electronics and chimes - in matching hoodies! - twee intact. High Places channels the spirit of school bus sing-a-longs, back country camping trips, and first prize science fair projects, while conjuring dreams of faraway places through the use of field recordings, contact mics on household items, wind instruments and electronic thingamabobs. The most loved new band in Brooklyn hands down." seen on tour with YACHT, THE BLOW, MIRAH, NO AGE, and ATLAS SOUND, and last year at 148 COLLEGE AVE.
LUCKY DRAGONS (http://myspace.com/luckydragons)
los angeles one-man psychedelic lovefest with touchyfeely electronic audience participation and awesomely positive cheer. "hawks and sparrows" is made up entirely of field recordings from anti-war protests across the US in 2003! exhibits in the VENICE and WHITNEY BIENNIALS, seen on tour with DIRTY PROJECTORS, WHITE RAINBOW, and BOBBY BIRDMAN.
raver synth party jams make you dance and vibe hard, how cool is that? based outta denver, plays shows with HEALTH, CRYSTAL CASTLES, GANG GANG DANCE, BLACK DICE.
