Deep Dark Cave presents a Nine Inch Nails and My Chemical Romance Visual Experience with guest VJ Sum Guy.
This is an EP fundraiser for Deep Dark Cave as well as a birthday celebration for Deep Dark Cave frontman Jeremy Koz. This will be a one of a kind night with multiple projections provided by VJ Sum Guy, sequenced lighting and a stage set up only suited for a Nine Inch Nails tribute night. Deep Dark Cave will be performing both bands. For Nine Inch Nails we are not playing any songs past 2005. There will be an industrial dance party following the tributes presented by VJ Sum Guy. In addition to the entertainment there will be a visual presentation by local artist Marc Kuegle!
NINE INCH NAILS
Nine Inch Nails became the face of industrial music in the '90s with hits "Head Like a Hole," “Closer," “March of the Pigs,” and "Hurt" gaining radio and television airplay as the band rose to the top of the charts with influential releases The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999). In addition to sales of over 20 million records worldwide, Nine Inch Nails have been nominated for thirteen Grammy Awards, winning twice for Best Metal Performance for the songs "Wish" and "Happiness in Slavery" in 1992 and 1996. Extending longevity into the 2000s, NIN evolved while maintaining chart success with 2005's With Teeth, 2007's Year Zero, and 2013's Hesitation Marks, even as the band's style shifted to incorporate more atmospheric electronic elements influenced by frontman Reznor's Oscar-winning film score composition. Their tours often employ thematic visual elements to accompany on-stage performances, which frequently include elaborate light shows, and songs are often rearranged to fit a live setting. In 1997, Reznor appeared in Time magazine's list of the year's most influential people, and Spin magazine has described him as "the most vital artist in music". In 2004, Rolling Stone placed Nine Inch Nails at 94 on the magazine's list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
With their emo-punk songwriting, theatrical vocals, and neo-goth appearance, My Chemical Romance rose from the East Coast underground to the forefront of modern rock during the early 2000s. In keeping with the tragic element of the group's best-known singles -- including "Helena," "I'm Not OK (I Promise)," and "Welcome to the Black Parade" -- My Chemical Romance has roots in catastrophe, as frontman Gerard Way decided to form the band after watching the World Trade Center collapse on September 11, 2001. My Chemical Romance jumped to the big leagues in 2003 by signing with Reprise Records. The following year, they released Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, a platinum-selling album that featured cover art by Way himself. Although critical reactions were mixed, the record produced several radio singles and popular MTV videos, including "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)," "Helena," and "The Ghost of You.” In 2006 2006 MCR issued the conceptual, highly ambitious effort The Black Parade. The record achieved platinum status by early 2007 and was followed by a live recording, Black Parade Is Dead!, in 2008.
DEEP DARK CAVE
Deep Dark Cave’s live show is an electrifying and magnetic performance that leaves you changed. Their sound is a perfect blend of harmonics, textures and effects where no instrument out powers the other. Deep Dark Cave is an indie rock visual experience with high energy players that are no strangers to the music industry. The story of their songs is told through their lyrics combined with impactful onstage visuals and pixel mapping. Whether it’s visuals from the 50s, 60s and 70s or something taken on iPhone one thing thing is certain, it will resonate in today’s world and spark a fire inside you. Created by five musicians with strong creative input and desire, Deep Dark Cave was chosen as one of the top five up and coming bands in 2016 in the annual Uniter Fiver. Currently working on their first EP produced by JP Peters (Royal Canoe, Yes We Mystic), their style has been compared to Kings of Leon, A Silent Film, Atlas Genius and The Killers to name a few. It’s time to get lost in the Deep Dark Cave.
