What a crazy billl for CARJACK's first headlining show at the Pike Room! Sez Mr. Carjack himself, "I'm trying to destroy your stereotypical show expectation: I'm doing it with electronics but I'm doing it natural and Im making it sound like a whole band. I used to score crappy dubs of dubbed tape cassettes of Black Flag, Minor Threat and Dead Milkmen from my skate punk buddies and then I used to listen to the Electrifying Mojo on WJLB and watch the New Dance Show on Channel 62 at night." Carjack has become bigger than one man with a drum machine; not only do numerous toy robots join him on stage, but it has become an idea a vanguard of genre defiance, filled with plenty of crazy antics, a psychedelic journey into the depths of punk-rock coleco-vision: fusing breakbeats, trashy guitars and Joust samples into the same song. As the man and robot that is all things Carjack, the man himself explained, I constantly like to explore new ideas, sounds, songs and visuals to present to the crowd. I like to keep everyone guessing and entertained at the same time. Dont miss the Jack. Ungdomskulen is a Norwegian rock band. Their sound is founded on bass, drums and guitar. Taken individually, the drum beats seem inspired by the city, the bass is syncopated and sonic, and the jazz-like guitar sounds as if it’s possessed by rock demons. And finally, there’s a light but authoritative male vocal on top. Wildcatting is one of the most astonishing and bewildering live bands around. This quartet, pushing the boundaries of instrumental noise experimentation, is an unearthed gem from the burgeoning scene. The energetic barrage of their sound and performance, sprawling and hypnotic, stretches the senses.
