Heliotrope 9 @ The Lab Theater

 "Flaneur Productions are once again proud to be presenting Heliotrope, an annual three-day festival featuring some of the area's most interesting and exciting underground music, for the ninth year running. Last year's stint at the beautiful Loring Theatre brought a wonderful change of venue, and while the closing of the Loring naturally saddens us, this situation gave Heliotrope an opportunity to move things to the warehouse district and take advantage of the posh confines of The Lab theatre on North First Street. Not only will this change allow the musicians to experience a new theatre, but the long-suffering merchandise table crew will finally get a chance to be inside the theatre on the mezzanine, rather than out in the lobby the entire time. We are very excited to be working with the fine people at The Lab.

This year's event will naturally see the return of some perennial mainstays (International Novelty Gamelan, Milo Fine, Thunderbolt Pagoda and Take Acre, to name a few), but will also feature a very large portion of new acts including the debut performance of Test Weapon (Jesse Petersen and Tim Glenn) black metal act Maledicere, minimal synth/coldwave acts CLAPS and The Night, industrial percussion merchants Prostate and a much-anticipated performance by the seminal St Paul power trio TVBC, featuring Paul Metzger on guitar, Freddy Votel of Skoal Kodiak on drums and the inhumanly skilled Adam Linz on bass."

Admission is $12.00 per day or $24.00 for a three-day pass. All ages welcome. Thursday/Friday/Saturday, 24-26 May 2012, 6:00PM-12:00 midnight each day. RSVP if you'd like.
