Below is a message from our wacky pals at Norwegian Arms & Laser Background. The two outfits have joined forces for a Philly House Show Residency Tour in September & October. However, it is not your normal run of shows as you will see from the deets below.
Hello fellow earthling. To celebrate what may perhaps be our last year on this planet, we here at Laser Background & Norwegian Arms have created a project of unlikely proportions, pushing the boundaries of all parties involved to new heights of creativity. For one month, from mid September - mid October, our two bands will perform once a week in different neighborhood house show spots within our fair city of Philadelphia. Also featured will be local &/or touring bands that we think are great. We will also adhere to a strict policy of rules for this project, which include actually living inside the houses we play in...
1 - We must actually "reside" in said houses for two days prior to / including the show, creating a sort of couch-fort / tent type dwelling in a living room or other common area. We may leave for work or other daily obligations, but absolutely must sleep there.
2 - During this time, we must adhere to a strict food / drug regimen for at least one of the two days.
3 - In & around our altered food / mind / couch fort states, we must write as much material as we can possibly be compelled to create.
4 - We must perform at least one song that we wrote during this period at the respective house that we have dwelled in.
5 - At the end of the entire project, a compilation of pertinent material & documentation of the process will be gathered for future release to the public.
* Friday September 21st @ Double Deuce in North Philly w/ TBA
* Friday October 5th @ The OX in Kensington w/ Thin Hymns & Son Step
All of these shows are all ages, open to the public, BYO fun-things & optional suggested donation $1 - $5 sliding scale. Please spread the word & tell your friends! We want this to be as fun for everyone as it will be for Andy & Brendan. Expect a lot of weird videos, recordings, drawings, etc. as these dates approach. We are psyched!
