Quick turnaround: Deep Heaven Now II


Last month 28 Degrees Taurus’ Jinsen Liu successfully resurrected the late ‘90s Deep Heaven Now festival with a full slate of Saturday evening and night shows in Somerville. Some of us still have beautiful headaches from the musical bomb-blasts of the Vandelles, Asteroid #4 and Doomstar.

Now, in keeping with the original Deep Heaven idea of a semi-annual music festival, Liu this week not only announced the lineup for November’s Deep Heaven Now II, but also kept his promise this latest one would be even more ambitious. This installment stretches out more than 25 bands over two days/nights — Nov. 12 and 13 — returning to the dual scenes of his first ambient psych-romp, Precinct and PAs Lounge in Union Square.

“You have to up the ante,” Liu tells On The Download. “No point otherwise... double the Heaven.”

There are some returning players, including rising local trio Night Fruit, the New Hampshire forest rock of MMOSS and Brooklyn’s sonic-surfers the Vandelles. But the latest Deep Heaven is aurally augmented by the additions of December Sound (also reuniting for Homegrown II), Fort Point Recordings trio Endless Wave and the DC-based experimental synth-explosion Screen Vinyl Image.

Consider this an advanced warning. Check the full lineup on the above flyer, and more details should emerge -- free beer again?!?!! -- in the coming weeks.
