Bardo Pond

Bardo Pond Opening SOLD OUT Godspeed You! Black Emperor Show at Union Transfer Oct. 2

Yeah, there is a big sold-out show coming to town at Union Transfer tonight with Godspeed You! Black Emperor, especially since they just announced yesterday that their first album in a decade, ALLELUJAH! DON'T BEND! ASCEND!, will be officially released on October 16, but is already available on tour. While you’re rushing to grab your copy, make sure to get there early to catch the set of Philly’s favorite experimental drone-y psych rockers Bardo Pond. The hometown staple has been helping to keep things weird on our music scene for over 20 years now so “ya betta redneckognize!” It’s going to be a transcendental evening! Oh, where have all the acid dealers gone when you need them? Union Transfer, 1024 Spring Garden St., 8pm, $25 (SOLD OUT), All Ages (Photo by Chris Becker) - H.M. Kauffman


Rock (or Zone) Out w/Bardo Pond at The Level Room June 18

Are you the type who understands the word “edible” as a noun more so than an adjective? If so, you might be interested in what’s going down tonight at The Level Room, as psych-rock vets Bardo Pond bring their space-rock drones to Market St. Formed in 1991, the sextet are led by the vocal shadings of Isobel Sollenberger and the guitar haze of the brothers Gibbons, making music comparable to what My Bloody Valentine might sound like after a week of smoking with Boris. Bardo Pond keep no secrets about their influences; many of their albums are named after “esoteric psychedelic substances,” and the way their instruments blend into a wall of white noise puts listeners under such influences as well. With openers Creepoid and Suishou No Fune, the atmosphere this evening is sure to be chill, so if you happen to have a dynamite brownie recipe you learned from a guy at college, get baking and come by The Level Room to rock (or zone) out. The Level Room, 2102 Market St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Adam Downer
