This is a truly amazing and exciting event that should not be missed. There are only 7 shows on this tour and Toronto is one of the seven. This means that this is a rare and special occurrence that should be respected and witnessed. Toronto has been given a gift we need to receive this with open arms and an open mind.
BOTH LIGHTNING BOLT and DAN DEACON are notorious for their live shows-----with that in mind, this is not an I will just check out their record type of situation. GO TO THE SHOW!!!!
Lightning Bolt emerged from Providence, RI, in 1995 as a three-piece art school project. Initially there was Brian Chippendale's explosive, nonstop drumming, Brian Gibson's Contortions-like basslines, and Hisham Baroocha's vocals propelling them in a fury of volatile noise and orgiastic tribalism. The group helped found Fort Thunder, a music and art collective, and recorded a self-titled album that was issued through Load in 1999. By 2001's Ride the Skies, Baroocha had departed (he eventually formed Black Dice). This left the vocal duties to Chippendale, who jammed the microphone into his mouth as he drummed. Lightning Bolt did a series of tours with bands like the Locust, Arab on Radar, Orchid, and Melt Banana before returning in 2003 with the studio album Wonderful Rainbow. The album did very well in underground music circles, and set up the release of 2005's Hypermagic Mountain. (cited from ALLMUSICGUIDE)
Equally influenced by diverse artists like Devo, Talking Heads, Scratch Orchestra, Raymond Scott, and Conlon Nancarrow, electronic music composer Dan Deacon studied electro-acoustic and computer music composition at Purchase College in New York. While he was a student, he issued his first recordings in small runs on CD-R, including Green Cobra Is Awesome vs. the Sun, Silly Hat vs. Egale Hat (yes, "Egale"), and Meetle Mice, all released in 2003. He later moved to Baltimore, MD, and became an instant figurehead of the city's fledgling electronic music community, joining the Wham City collective and evangelizing his and his fellow whimsical peers' "future shock" output. Linking up with the Carpark label, he released Spiderman of the Rings (2007) and Bromst (2009), two albums filled with hyperactive and often challenging electronic detritus.
