THE GREAT BRAIN ROBBERY PRESENTS
A POST-APOCALYPTIC, NEON SOAKED
LATE NIGHT SONIC GETAWAY
KNIGHT$ and many more…
Absolutely thrilled to annpounce that The Great Brain Robbery will return to Standon Calling Festival this summer to present <TECH NOIR> – a post-apocalyptic neon-soaked late night sonic getaway. This is the future - the year is 2018 through the eyes of 1984…
We immerse in the neo noir world of Bladerunner-meets-Terminator and find ourselves in the heart of it all at a club called <TECH NOIR> where everyone comes and anything goes … and you always expect the worst. A place where people come to forget their troubles in a fast carefree and uncertain world.
But never far from the surface level of this facade, an ominous and calulating technological presence lurks waiting for the right moment to carve its all-engulfing will upon the future and change everything forever.
Trapped somewhere between utopia and dystopia, the music at tech noir fluctuates between a retrowave world of warm luscious analogue synthesizers and cinematic vocals and somewhere much darker… The sheen of 80s pop disintegrates into a panicked disturbia… Futuristic erotic performances morph into outrun darkwave shadows… Nothing is quite what it seems in TECH NOIR.
Live bands include: Findlay Anoraak Artificial Pleasure The Modern Strangers Knight$ Carnival of Souls
DJS: Maethelvin Absolute Valentine Kalax Gus Robertson DJ Mental Blank Hugo Wilkinson
And performance artists: House of Kittens The People Pile
Forget everything you think you know…
This is the Great Brain Robbery !
