Noise: Doberman – At Large in the City Bootleg – Foam City 2013-06-29

FoamCity-Locals Only-Poster-2013-06-29

Doberman. Loud. Noisy. Theatric. Shin splitting gravel sounds emitted through various amplifiers. The show opened with some found sound from an interview and then broke way to a larger cacophony of sounds, supplied by its diverse instrumentation.

In this locals-only show Wasps Masks, The Unusual Few, and the Gestalts also took the stage throughout the night for a fun, high energy, and loud, knock’em around show at Foam City.

Listen to the At Large in the City Bootleg:

Foam City, and other venues, should continue to support the local scene as much as they can.
