Description

The show poster proclaims Trance to the Sun as "neo-psychedelic darkwave post-punk legends," which they are-though when things get that specific anything can be a legend. Byzantine categorization aside, Trance to the Sun has been around quite a while, beginning in 1989 as a project of Ashkelon Sain and over the next 20 years their lineup remained as nebulous as their sound. All the while the band churned out seven-minute tunes full of dark, ambient riffs and ethereal vocals. After a hiatus, the band is back re-recording and re-releasing old classics, touring and putting out a new full length in May. Just in time too, as neo-psychedelic darkwave post-punk is back in vogue. Mercury's Antennae opens. (Stephen Layton)
