Crystal Antlers, Craft Spells, Tropic of Cancer, Chelsea Wolfe and Blouse. To document this very special night, we worked with director Greg Hunt, DP Greg Schmitt, and audio engineer Griffin Rodriguez. No overdubs, no second takes. 100% raw live weirdness.
For the next five weeks we'll debut one performance per week from each Room 205 Live artist. Today's premiere episode features a performance from Crystal Antlers, who originally visited Room 205 in 2010. The Room 205 Live showcase at MFNW marked the debut of the band's new blazer, "Persephone."
We hope you'll enjoy watching our experiment as much as we've enjoyed making it. Huge thanks to the performing artists, MFNW and the good people of PDX, as well to production manager Nathan Ostrander, in-house engineer Dave Hite and booker Kenric Ashe at Ted's.
See Crystal Antler's performance of "Persephone" below.
Crystal Antlers formed in January 2006 in Long Beach, CA. Creating their own blend of psychedelic, punk, and soul, the band have quickly become favorites among a broad range of music lovers throughout N. America and the EU. The full-length LP Tentacles (Touch & Go, 2009) and the more recent Two-Way Mirror (Recreation Ltd, 2011) offer true mind-melters in the traditions of early-Love Battery, late-Built To Spill, and the always classic Jimi Hendrix Experience.
