06.29 Red Mass, Holy Cobras & Siam Cat.
Capital Distraction presents...
RED MASS (Montreal)
The brainchild of Roy Vucino, aka Choyce (CPC Gangbangs, The Daylight Lovers, Les Sexareenos), Red Mass took shape in 2008 following the inevitable implosion of the volatile and legendary CPC Gangbangs.
Using Red Mass as a platform, Choyce and his collaborators are intent to pursue the ideals of free thinking, the use of chaos, sex-magik and liberation through art.
Now, Red Mass has opened itself to all with a sincere belief that it can offer young artists and outsiders alike a new haven. With a slew of singles, 10"s, EPs and experimental releases, Red Mass is ready to hit. Their psychedelic space rock 'n' roll and its elements of noise, folk, punk and electronic music is a culmination of 12 years of hard work. The dark poppy hooks, laced with other worldy sound effects, are at once an ode to the past, the music of today, and the shape of rock 'n' roll to come.
HOLY COBRAS (Ottawa)
HOLY COBRAS are becoming an unstoppable force. After solidifying their lineup and recording several different times they're nailing their sound perfectly. They've just returned from playing the OBEY CONVENTION in Halifax as well as playing many out of town shows in recent months.
