I know you’re all shocked the world didn’t end on the 21st, or have some new beginning, or that the Earth just continued on its merry journey around the sun like it has for the last 4 billion years. But on the infinitely remote chance it was going to end then, this is the show I’d end it with – Vorhees (Dana Wachs), Sapphire Mansion, and the duet of Dee Dee (Dum Dum Girls) and Brandon (Crocodiles) at Glasslands in Brooklyn.
When she’s not performing as Vorhees, Dana Wachs tours the world as an audio engineer for the likes of St. Vincent, Cat Power, Lykke Li, MGMT, and others. Her skills as a sonic architect are second to none, pairing live guitar with processed sounds, muted electronic beats and ethereal vocals to create some finely crafted ambient pop and larger soundscapes.
Sapphire Mansions is the project of Jay Hough, a guitar and a drum machine. Jay has played drums and guitar with Golden Triangle, Gogogo Airheart and Xray Eyeballs, and in February this year he entered a studio in Brooklyn to record his own songs with Jeremy Scott.
Dee Dee and Brandon put the big bang finish to the night playing stripped down versions of songs from both their bands, Dum Dum Girls and Crocodiles. The end of the world doesn’t get any better than this.
