Slowdive @ House of Vans (FREE)
Free entry and free beer! You must also RSVP at https://houseofvansbrooklyn.queueapp.com/events/39405 RSVPs open on June 13th at 9am but are limited and are likely to fill up quickly - we will post a reminder before they open. Entry is not guaranteed so we'll be getting there for when doors open at 7pm. Commonly identified as shoegaze, Slowdive nonetheless exhibited a broader set of inspirations -- one that spanned four decades, including folk-rock, dub, and ambient techno -- than the majority of their '90s contemporaries. A combination of geographic origin, labelmates such as My Bloody Valentine and Ride, and a sustained predilection for dreamlike harmonies and psychedelicized layers of guitar, led to inevitable restrictive classification. The band's distinctive sound continually evolved from their late-'80s start through 1995, when they closed out their first phase with a misunderstood ambient album that shed nearly all rock convention. Two decades later, while most of the members remained involved with individual pursuits, the band was reactivated for touring and recorded again.

What we're about

You should join this group if...

1. Your friends don't want to travel to Brooklyn to see a show on a weeknight.

2. You're over seeing sold out shows at MSG and Terminal 5 and would prefer to check out a new band at a small venue that won't break the bank.

3. You're sick of having to scramble to find someone to attend that awesome show with you and would like to meet a group of people with adventurous musical taste.
