It’s a night of new dark body music from the swamps of the Big Easy as solo projects Death Stair and Material Body descend on Stonewall’s Panic! for a one-off date. Aaron Bell’s Death Stair is already garnering healthy buzz for such a young project, and it’s no mystery why. Death Stair’s sound is lean and insistent, not a note wasted, and it’s a superlative balance of gothic anguish and gleaming techno grooves. Sharp-eyed local underground dwellers will recognize Material Body from a show just over a year ago at Anime Fun Shop, and their alter ego Divorce Ring has played the City Beautiful a number of times. Material Body’s relentless analog grooves hammer their point home beautifully. This one’s ideal for the goth elders and the new wavers alike.
