“The Olm” at [H]ohm

Steve Hammond’s metal voice is aural Prozac, and his unaffected vocals are sublime and compelling, too. But the multi-instrumentalist’s trademark is irreverent and sci-fi-inflected post-prog/stoner/country/metal composition. His latest solo work finds Leeches of Lore’s prime mover exploring a place called Hammondville. When passing through this existential burg, you’re advised to roll down the windows of your mind. Hammond commands attention at Sister (407 Central NW) on Friday, Dec. 27 at Canclo’s soft release party. Read our micro review at bit.ly/canclo. Starting at 10pm, sleaze-thrash trio [H]ohmtransliterated form of [H]Ωand math-y Everhard-core outfit Bath House add to the portentous festivity. And 21-plus attendees will thrill to tracks titled “Lake of Sweat,” “Captain Trips” and “Pussy Febreze.” Tickets are $5.

NYE dream-pop fête

Do you approve of the usage surge of the term “chillwave” and the high-pitched, glitchy vocals, sparkling and gurgling electronics and occasional chopped-and-screwed vibe signified? If you’re not sure, find out at Sister (407 Central NW) on New Year’s Eve; that’s Tuesday, Dec. 31. San Franciscan dream-pop, chillwave and experimental electronic artist Giraffage aka Charlie Yin visits Burque as we drive out 2013. House musician Nathan New, swervegaze act Reighnbeau and Colorado Springs dream-hop artist Metallic Clouds provide psychedelic assistance. The 21-plus party starts at 9pm, and presale tickets are $25. If you plan on savoring celebratory bubbly, designate a driver, splurge on a cab or access safe ride services; stay safe while having a blast. Bring a sweater, hydratewith water, I meanand hit up vendors, food trucks and late-night eateries for snacks to bolster your booze tolerance.
