As most of you know, Kinetik Festival – one of the bigger Industrial/Electronic/EBM festivals – was canceled. Not only for this year, but apparently forever and ever.
Kinetik was to be the stage, literally, for Glass Apple Bonzai’s debut live performance and with the collapse of the festival it seemed that perhaps some rescheduling was in order, and of course huge amounts of disappointment.
Enter the fine minds of Troy Hilton (Darker Side of Light Promotions), Alex Kennedy (I Die:You Die), and Scott Fox (iVardensphere) put their noses to the grind stoned and made a new fire from the ashes of Kinetik.
This fire is called “AFTERMATH :: Industrial/EBM/Synthpop May 22-25th, 2014 ::“, and as you can see it takes place the same weekend that Kinetik was scheduled.
And oh yeah….GLASS APPLE BONZAI IS PERFORMING!
That’s right, we’ve been reinstated and will be performing our debut gig at Aftermath.
Here’s a banner. Because…banners.
I know it says “Industrial” on the banner/cover/image/whatever but it’s not just industrial music. Trust me.
I’m really jazzed to be a part of this festival and can’t wait to perform the Bonzai material live. Especially to a bunch of people…instead of the usual room full of 15 people at a dank bar with the crappiest sound system ever. (OK, I kinda like those shows too)
Anyhow, in the meantime I’m busy preparing all of the perk packages for the Indiegogo campaign, and rehearing for the live set.
Hope to see some of you at AFTERMATH!
