Closing Performances: NYOBS & PXALM

PXALM-empirical noise show image.jpg

NYOBS is Mike Cacciatore, Peter Cramer, John Michael Swartz and Jack Waters. An alternative experimental free association “kitchen“ band born at Punk Island 2014. From trance lyrics to primal screams, NYOBS pierces the restive soul with mind-blowing inducements of tonal & aural synth-esthesia. Recent performances include opening for 3 Teen Kill 4 at BWAC and a special musical tribute to the writings of David Wojnarowicz at the Whitney Museum.

PXALM: Angel Favorite, Maureen Catbagan, and L. Favorite are non-binary/gender-fluid, Brooklyn-based multi-media artists whose music is part existential, post-punk, and dark romantic. They have a curiosity towards exploring different forms of spirituality and expanding individual and social consciousness through sound.
