Mary Ocher, from Berlin, has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, raw, thought-provoking, socially and creatively pushing against the current, dealing with subjects of authority, identity and conflict. Her work is as enchanting as it is polarizing, ranging from traditional folk to raw 60s garage, ambient with ethereal vocals and abstract synths, to experimental pop with African and South American rhythms. Catch her at Club Congress with support from our local favorite synth-stress, Snackbirdy, and a new electronic project, Silky Velvet!

Some remarkable trademarks of his astounding opus include: Various holiday themes, references to several well-known singers and athletes such as, George Michael, Scottie Pippen, Steve Harvey, e.t.c. and Yung Gravy’s vocal tone bearing resemblance to that of the late Frank Sinatra.

Dreamdecay

Dreamdecay

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Dreamdecay live in their own liminal zone: too punk for psych, and too far out for punk. Armed with angular post-punk riffs and rapid-fire bursts of noise that recalls the best of Arizona's own Destruction Unit, the Seattle, Washington natives craft pop dirges of the highest caliber. See them (FOR FREE) alongside the agoraphobic shoegaze of Hikikomori and Tempe no-wavers, Soft Shoulder.
