Chinese Stars | Listen to Your Left Brain
A brittle blast of synth-rock, evoking the spooks of angular and cranky goth-rockers like Gang of Four, Joy Division, and Public Image.
Solid, raw, and passionate, with enough hooks to carry a limited bunch of punky power chords a lot further than you’d expect.
At Cats on Friday, December 21, check out SHROUD OF BEREAVEMENT, TWELFTH OF NEVER, and STORMS APPROACH. Call 401.722.0150. Rob Cinami’s neo-Anomalous project is RHYTHMAFIA, groove stuff heavy on the party vibe. They’ll play at AS220 on Saturday, December 22, with THE ENTRANCE and SHORT BEACH. Admission is $6. Call 401.831.9327.
Back in ’01, KRIS HANSEN suffered a brain aneurysm and was given little chance to survive, let alone make music. But the Big One works in mysterious ways and Hansen has not only lived to tell the story, he has jumped back into the music business. His debut, Lying in the Bed of Now, is credited to the Left Hand Band, a collaboration with Bob Giusti that features George Dussault, Jon Tierney, and Tara Hansen. It’s an outpouring of quality roots and rock, replete with the lyrical wisdom that comes along with surviving a close one. The crew will play at Snookers Lounge on Thursday (the 27th). Call 401.351.7665.
