Who HillyTown Presents: Goes Cube + Waranimal + Huak When Tuesday, May 10, 2011 8:00pm – $8 – 18+ Where SPACE Gallery (map) 538 Congress St Portland, ME, USA 04101 Other InfoIt would be easy to call Brooklyn’s Goes Cube a metal band. After all, their music is heavy, loud, and often fast. But Goes Cube continually demonstrates that it exists in a universe all its own: outside the trends and styles of New York (where the band formed), and outside of the standard metal tropes – drawing on influences that also include punk, hardcore, noise, and indie rock. Their idea is simple: make the heavy heavier, fast faster, hooky hookier, and pretty prettier. Their new disc – In Tides And Drifts (The End Records) – even calls upon folk singer Jaymay, whose haunting melodies break hearts as the band behind her batters eardrums. Waranimal are a totally excellent party metal band who recently gave us a strong contender for show of the winter season by filling SPACE with a bounce house, silly string, and a whole lot of crowdsurfing dudes in hawaiian shirts. Local punk (post-punk/hardcore/political/art/just-call-it-great) quartet Huak have a new full length coming this summer and open this show. HillyTown Presents works with both national touring acts and Maine musicians to curate unique live music experiences.
