EVENT HORIZON (Thursday, Jun 29)

You don't need rain to see this rainbow

Reighnbeau • indietronica • Sazoram • electronic • Austin Morrell • rock

I have always been astounded by the potential of sound; for millennia, sounds have been pieced together in inventive ways, entrancing audiences and shaping emotion through music. Music to me is a thing of magic, constantly transforming into something new in the hands of those with the ability to harness it. Albuquerque native Bryce Hample, better known as the mastermind behind the surreal vibrations of Reighnbeau, is truly one of those wizards, an electro-maestro with a brilliant capability for intricately layering sounds where one would least expect, but where they truly belong. This Thursday, June 29, Reighnbeau will be transforming Sister into a dreamlike world of glinting shoegaze and celestial ambience, adorned by Hample’s remarkable capabilities for visual art and mesmerizing performance even as he concocts the magic of music before our eyes. Featuring opening performances from Sazoram and Austin Morrell, the doors to the cosmic stage will open at 8pm. Be sure to get your tickets at the presale price of $5 before they go up at the door.
