Sightings’s bassman Richard Hoffman personally assembled this murders row of noisemongering experimentalists all the way from the left coast to ours, solely for this unique ear-shredding evening. Legendary avant-gardist provocateur Tom Smith of now-defunct genre-defying deconstructionist collective To Live and Shave in L.A. is doing double-duty, first duo-ing with Velvet Monkeys’s (and TLASILA collaborator) Don Fleming, then teaming with No Neck Blues Band’s Pat Murano in an extra-cacophonous edition of local gnash-n-burners, Sightings. Making the trek from Massachusetts is Northampton’s finest, the brain-draining, conceptual art-punk jamz troupe, Fat Worm of Error. With Child Abuse.
