The Candy Snatchers. With Zodiac Panthers, The Spells, and NFK Nightmares at the Taphouse

November 18, 20191617Views

The half-shut doors through which we heard that music

Are softly closed. Horns mutter down to silence.

The stars whirl out, the night grows deep.

Darkness settles upon us. A vague refrain

Drowsily teases at the drowsy brain.

In numberless rooms we stretch ourselves and sleep.

Where have we been? What savage chaos of music

Whirls in our dreams?—We suddenly rise in darkness,

Open our eyes, cry out, and sleep once more.

We dream we are numberless sea-waves languidly foaming

A warm white moonlit shore;

Or clouds blown windily over a sky at midnight,

Or chords of music scattered in hurrying darkness,

Or a singing sound of rain . . .

We open our eyes and stare at the coiling darkness,

And enter our dreams again.

-- Conrad Aiken, Poet Laureate of the United States 1950-1952

"The House Of Dust: Part 03: 13"

This show rocked because all of these bands rock. If you missed it, you got screwed. And that's pretty much all I have to say on the topic.
