Drab Majesty – Cold Souls New Zealand Tour – WGTN

January 24 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
$23

Drab Majesty is the solo project of Deb DeMure, the androgynous alter-ego of Andrew Clinco from Los Angeles, California, United States. With its combination of reverb-drenched guitars, synth bass lines, commanding vocals, and rhythmic drum machine beats, this project is a stark departure from Clinco’s previous stints as drummer in Marriages and Black Mare. Dubbed "tragic wave" and "mid-fi" by DeMure, Drab Majesty eloquently blends classic 80s new wave and hints of early 4AD with a futuristic originality. Wielding a left-handed…

Zeal and Ardor

February 25 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
$55

Zeal & Ardor is the one-man brainchild of Manuel Gagneux, a Swiss-American formerly based in New York City.
