‘Abandon Ship Showcase’ Tuesday, May 12

Telecult Powers will bring the candles. And the weird boxes. And the long, droney explorations that somehow turn Cake Shop’s weirdly slanted basement into a peaceful zone in the midst of Manhattan’s thrum. (The venue’s Christmas lights also help.) Chaw Mank, meanwhile, will bring the ear-piercing sludge walls—or one imagines, anyway, their CD-Rs being a bit rare. But between its primary members—Sightings’ bassist Richard Hoffman and Mouthus guitarist Brian Sullivan—and a sole YouTube video distorted like a mangy cassette release, this seems a bit foregone. Bliss awaits at many volumes.
