Weird World Series present:TimeIsFire//MUNDY//Loi Loi

April 22 @ 9:00 pm - April 23 @ 12:00 am

(Second Floor, Donations $$$ much appreciated for the music and artists you adore)

It’s a weird world baby…losing grasp on dreams, THEY create alternative reality for us. But we resist forces of evil tonight with:

Loi Loi: an indie-electronic group with an eclectic background of rock and roll, R&B, and soul influences, comprised of the two-headed sibling/synthofile monster Johnny Fantastic and Kristie. Loi Loi formed four years ago in China, and has toured on the East Coast and Spain. Loi Loi is a 100% DIY original and energetic project with songs in English, Spanish, and Chinese.

MUNDY: a Washington, DC based band serving New Wave Soul. A Space glam look with a punk rock edge. With body moving beats and soaring melodies, MUNDY will get you lifted and make you dance it out. Up-beat and visually engaging, MUNDY is a theatrical rock experience. Their songs take you on a trip through space and time, to a place where acceptance, passion, and joy are the only reality. We are equally made of stardust, together we shine.

Time Is Fire: play music from a country that doesn’t exist. Fronted by an Iranian-born Sufi poet and backed by players steeped in punk, dance and experimental music, Time is Fire mixes pan-cultural rhythms, floor-shaking funk grooves and acid-laced guitar into a mind-expanding geopolitical dance party. Time is Fire’s newest release, “Angels,” is like an international airport hub of music in present day America, largely because of the varied backgrounds of its members. Sufi-inspired lyrics reveal revolutionary language and universal truths. Afro-punk grooves belie a deeper message about overcoming fear and inaction on the title track which features TV On The Radio’s Smoota on trombone. The electro beats of Angolan Kuduro music inspire “Shelter.” “Turn Your TVs Off” crystallizes a new direction for the band, recalling the minimalist approach of ESG, Liquid Liquid and A Certain Ratio while “Words on the Walls” recalls Band of Gypsies-era Hendrix and Eno minimalism. At the end of the day however, Time Is Fire sound like Time Is Fire and the group naturally defies categorization.
