Disappearing People

Uncle Alberts Holiday Social with Secret Sidewalk Klaxon Mutant All-Stars and Disappearing People TONIGHT

Tonight, Secret Sidewalk, Disappearing People, and Klaxon Mutant All-Stars will be joining forces at Oakland's Legionnaire Saloon to play Uncle Alberts Holiday Social.

The show features an array of bands that let instrumentals shine above all else. Headlining the shindig is Bay Area organic electronic quartet, Secret Sidewalk. Seeking to achieve an avant-garde “dirt wave” sound, the band puts on a chaotic yet seamless set. Oakland's experimental lo-fi duo, Disappearing People will also be making an appearance. The band plays for the long haul cranking out reverb-heavy durational musical arrangements with psych-rock leanings. Klaxon Mutant Allstars also join in on the fun with its own brand of jazz-fusion. The instrumental quartet offers cohesive, caterwauling musical compositions. -Erin Dage

   

Disappearing People Release New Live Single + Play The Night Light TONIGHT

Stealthy Oakland based experimental duo, Disappearing People recently released a live recording of their November 13th performance at The Night Light. This untitled recording is impressively mixed by the club's resident sound engineer, Jeffrey Adam Wright, who made every bellowing note from founding member, Scott Johnston crystal clear and audible. Steven Sessler portrays proficiency and poise on the drums as he's able to improvise and blend with the every haunting, and echoing loop and atmosphere Johnston created on guitar and with his vocals. This new track permeates a moody, noisy and imploding chaos that somehow holds its composure in a way that keeps you listening until the last second.

You can catch Disappearing People live, once again at The Night Light TONIGHT. They'll be one component of a strong bill that includes two other great local bands, Clipd Beaks and White Cloud. -je
