On Tuesday, October 9th @ 1:30PM, DJ Sparkle Motion hosts Brooklyn based noise rock trio, A Place To Bury Strangers, for a very special in-studio live performance. Be sure to tune in and sample the band’s explosive aural assault ahead of their show later that same night at The Starline Social Club in Oakland.
For well over a decade now, A Place to Bury Strangers—Lunadon, founding guitarist/singer Oliver Ackermann, and, officially, Braswell—have become well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable, often bewildering live shows, and total, some might say dangerous volume. They don’t write setlists. They frequently write new songs mid-set. They deliberately provoke and sabotage sound people in a variety of cruel yet innovative ways. They can and will always surprise you. “When something goes wrong on-stage, a lot of bands will crumble under the pressure,” says Ackermann. “We like the idea of embracing the moment when things go wrong and turning it into the best thing about the show.”
