Ampevene w/s/g Bushicks, Spaceman, The Phryg
July 22, 2016 @ 8:00 pm
A pure listening and visceral experience, Ampevene blends a free form frenzy, jagged riffs, and hypnotic rhythms into a tight, psychedelic, sonic landscape, designed to trip up and trip out any listener. Ampevene draws influence from renowned artists such as Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, TOOL, Mastodon, King Crimson, John Frusciante, and more, yet somehow manages to create something completely unique for their listeners. An Ampevene live show will walk you through an experimentation of sounds ranging from soft floating grooves to heavy math based confusion, and even downright noise. Yet somehow their complexity doesn’t outshine the pure emotion and even comfort that the songs exude at the same time.
Bushicks: The brainchild of Jonny Bushick, a four piece Rock n’ Roll outfit out of Brooklyn, NY who hang their hats on song writing. With their roots in blues and country, sometimes indie, prog, and post-rock make their way into the mix. After meeting drummer John Adamski at a jam session with a mutual friend (Joey Calfa of Cousin Earth), Jonny sought out fellow Oneonta alumnist David Schnurman (Vocals/Guitar) and Jess Bogwicz (Bass) to bring his idea to life. Now with recordings coming out, some shows under their belts, and almost a year together, the future appears to be very bright.
