Creepoid Homecoming Celebration at Underground Arts April 23

After a short period in Savannah, Georgia, Creepoid returns home this evening headlining Underground Arts, and we collectively welcome them with open arms! The perpetually touring four-piece have a new LP Cemetery Highrise Slum scheduled for release on June 23 via Collect Records. One finds him/herself soothingly absorbed in the band’s alluring psych-rock cloud, swaying to the motion as the music effortlessly shifts in a heavier murky adrenaline-releasing grunge direction. Creepoid continuously finds a way to create multi-textured sounds that appear smooth yet retain a pleasant grit. Shari Vari dusk-creeping electronic/percussive endeavor, also known as Void Vision, keeps one on alert as the ever-present bounce of motion and eerie synth provide a sense of unavoidable tension, and the partially muted vocals increase the suspense. The trio of Gondola fully embraces the heavy guitar throttling - searing, sweat-dripping, psych-tinged, battle-tested, hard rock, letting the instruments open up and speak their minds. Dead Heavens the new project led by the legendary Walter Schreifels (Youth of Today, Guerilla Biscuits) rounds out the makings of a memorable evening. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Void Vision Record Release Show at KFN Dec. 3

Void Vision, a.k.a. Shari Vari, celebrates the release of her latest record Sub Rosa (Mannequin Records) this evening at Kung Fu Necktie. The album has a persistent percussive synth base, which predatorily lurks, providing a drafty dangerous atmosphere. However, these ominous tones simultaneously cause a protective shot of adrenaline, letting you escape into back alley groove, while eluding caution in favor of experience. Tonight, The Bad Doctors will join them in their dark-wave endeavor; the group's heart-thumping, dance-accelerating electro-post punk takes varying sonic turns, rocketing through a narrowing unlit street that has the potential to lead to an airy open field. The bill will also feature Morsberger brothers experimental noise outfit Drums Like Machine Guns and the NYC-based synth-pop of YOU (whom are also on Blind Prophet Records with Void Vision). Matthew Kosloff of Pissed Jeans, a.k.a. DJ BCBG, will get the ball rolling. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Void Vision Brings Back the Chill at JB's Oct. 18

The cold wave adrenaline rush of the aptly-named Void Vision, Shari Vari’s minimal solo synth/electronic project, will be on display tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. Void Vision finds Shari melding dark, ominous synth tones with semi-muted female vocals, effectively conveying the cinematic thrill of moving through a dimly lit back alley, bass pushing the tempo on a chase through the streets. This cold wave endeavor, far from being meditative, is one to dance to. The bill also includes the infectious ambient-r&b/techno stylings of the British band Holy Other and the intense drum-bass heavy escapades of Pressure Points. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Eraserhood Forever w/Void Vision at PhilaMOCA July 13

Shari Vari, the industrious lady behind electronica act Void Vision was a child when "Twin Peaks" came out, but she'll be playing tonight to a crowd that's no doubt made up for lost time and gotten their introduction to David Lynch by marathoning through the whole series on Netflix Instant. She's on the lineup for Eraserhood Forever at PhilaMOCA, an artistic and musical homage to David Lynch in the neighborhood that creeped him out enough to make Eraserhead. Void Vision makes cavernous, synth-laden music that's known to the kids these days as coldwave, but to many, it will resemble the soundtrack to fleeing shadowy henchmen on Mulholland Drive or finding the body of a murdered homecoming queen in the river of a logging town. Void Vision's macabre aura is right at home on the Lynchian bill, which features rockabilly trio Full Blown Cherry as well as a host of art, burlesque and comedy acts.
