WHBV, No Age and V+V collaboration
We Have Become Vikings are proud to announce Los Angeles natives and Sub Pop band, No Age, are performing at Cincinnati’s Contemporary Art Center (CAC) on Monday, September 9th, at 8pm as part of a collaboration between the band, Visionaries and Voices, CAC, and We Have Become Vikings. Opening the show is Cincinnati punk band, Vacation. This show is all ages. Tickets are $8 for CAC members and $14 for non-members, and can be purchased through the CAC website or by going directly to http://www.showclix.com/event/NoAgeCAC
No Age, a critically acclaimed experimental punk band, will be playing songs from their fourth and newest full-length album, An Object. Unique to this performance in Cincinnati will be a stage installation by Visionaries and Voices artists Curtis Davis and Kevin White along with Krista Gregory and two pieces of merchandise only available for sale at the show. Attendees will be able to purchase a limited edition No Age cassette featuring cover art by V+V artist, Dale Jackson, as well as a poster designed by We Have Become Vikings, V+V artists Kathleen Brannigan and Cathrine Whited, and screenprinted by Cincinnati’s Cryptogram Ink.
The event came together when the band’s booking agent contacted We Have Become Vikings and asked them to assist with setting up a show in Cincinnati. WHBV’s Jason Snell and Mike Gibboney approached Visionaries + Voices, a non-profit that provides artistic, cultural, and professional opportunities for artists with disabilities, and inquired about opportunities to collaborate. WHBV later approached the CAC and brought them on board as a partner in producing the event.
About No Age:
With An Object, No Age has forgone the straight and narrow route, landing in a strange and unexpected place, feet planted in fresh, fertile soil. This new LP finds drummer/vocalist Dean Spunt exploding from behind his kit, landing percussive blows with amplified contact mics, 4-string bass guitars, and prepared speakers, as well as traditional forms of lumber and metal. Meanwhile, guitarist Randy Randall corrals his previously lush, spastic, sprawling arrangements into taut, refined, rats' nests. Lyrically Spunt challenges space, fracturing ideological forms and complacency, creating a striking new perspective that reveals thematic preoccupations with structural ruptures and temporal limits.
