a place both wonderful and strange WHAT I SPEAK I CREATE tour kickoff!
w/ GHOST COP (BK) and Voltheque

a place both wonderful and strange is the Brooklyn-based Occult Electronic Dance performance art moniker of Shanda Woods, Laura Hajek and Russ Marshalek. Dark, moody, experimental electronic dance music inspired in equal parts by David Lynch and Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814. This is the dark future. Their new album, «What I Speak I Create», will be released on Sony/The Orchard Aug 4. #NewJackWitch

GHOST COP
Time is omnidirectional and best viewed through slate tinted glass. A low rise concrete brutalist dwelling covered in graphical and colorful sigils. A robot siren call warning of unchecked technological progress. The continual low ambient drones in any city, in any country.

Voltheque
After a brief stint rehearsing as an 80s cover band, former members of Philadelphia bands TV Sound, Action Reaction and Silk Stockade have joined forces in a collective musical super-endeavor: Voltheque. Merging classic gothic rock influences such as Siouxsie and the Banshees and The Cult with Futurist and New Romantic styles of Depeche Mode and Visage, delightfully centered around a Duran Duran-esque groove, this band has all the elements of post-punk revival covered, along with plenty of originality to propel them into the modern age. In a live context, Voltheque conjures a unique and energetic performance like you’ve never seen, showcasing their pulsating rhythms, driving guitars, and ambient soundscapes to create a sound unique to the current Philadelphia music scene. Stay tuned for their upcoming single, Unearthed, which is currently in production at Philly Sound Studios.

Doors 7:30 / Show 8:00 / $10
