Boris and Clouds at Soundlab

The critically acclaimed Japanese experimental trio, Boris, will be performing this coming Monday at Soundlab. Recently ending their tour opening for Nine Inch Nails, Boris will be sharing the stage of a more personal venue with Boston’s Clouds.
Boris, an act that has spanned over a decade, found it’s footing with an American audience when their genre-bending album “Pink”, released in the States in 2006 by Southern Lord became an immediate appeal to critics and fans alike topping SPIN, Blender, and Pitchfork as one of the best albums of the year. Borrowing flavors from such classics as Motorhead, Blue Cheer, and 90’s stoner rock sensations Sleep and Kyuss, Boris crafts a heavy sound spun by E-bows, generating an unsettling amount of distortion and plenty of droning feedback. The psychedelic sound of Boris has found appeal to wide range of music listeners as every album stands on its own as completely separate from the previous one.
While Clouds are a considerably younger act, guitarist Adam McGrath is no stranger to loud rock n’ roll. His former band, Cave In, has been popping in and out of Buffalo for almost a decade. Extending the post-hardcore roots of Cave In, Clouds brings a livelier sound with a wink and a nod to MC5. Recognized for their monstrous guitar verses and vintage-era melodies, Clouds has been a show-stealing act for most of 2008. Their latest release, “We Are Above You,” was complimented with shows with fellow Hydra Head labelmates, Torche and Harvey Milk.
The co-headlining show will be joined by Buffalo / Brooklyn act, Teeth So Sharp at Soundlab this Monday, December 1st, at 7PM. Tickets will be $17 the day of the show or $15 if you order before then through Ticketmaster. Ear plugs are $2 at Wegmans (not required, but highly recommended).
Soundlab is located at 110 Pearl Street Street, Buffalo, NY.
