A Robot Presents: Captain Hollow / Powers / Pamola / Whisperians

Who A Robot Presents: Captain Hollow / Powers / Pamola / Whisperians When Thursday, September 8, 2011 8:00pm – 21+ Where Flask Lounge (map) 117 Spring St Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other InfoBROUGHT TO YOU BY A ROBOT BOOKING: This concert will be the official Portland debut of Captain Hollow, and also the official kick-off show for their September micro-tour. In addition, this will also be the debut of their new lineup, featuring Jakob Battick on guitar & backup vocals/howls/madness and the return of Kyle Mallory Mcdonald on bass and tanktops. Free tour-only CDs (featuring new and fucking awesome recordings) as we…ll as nice free vinyl stickers will be made available, and the second printing of the Captain Hollow debut EP will be available for purchase at a cheap-ass price.

Joining Captain Hollow will be the Peru-based trio POWERS (Incredibly beautiful and heartbreaking songs that will also crush your ears, the kids who used to run THE CASTLE in Mexico, ME), New York City’s Whisperians (Coming through on tour), and those giants of prog-post-hardcore-avant-freak-noise-insanity Pamola.

This is a totally free show. It is 21+. Please come out and make Captain Hollow’s Portland debut a special evening, and not some lame ol’ floppy dud. These are some fantastic bands all just waiting to throttle your ear-drums FOR ABSOLUTELY NO MONIES. Y’ALL.

For anyone who might remember, Captain Hollow now encompasses 3/4 of the original founding members of Bangor High noise-rock idiot savants 1800s Sea Monster (Jakob Battick, Ryan Higgins, and Patric Cunningham.) This is probably the closest thing to an 1800s Sea Reunion that will ever come to pass (hint hint cover cover.)
