A Place to Bury Strangers and Hospitality at Strange Matter This WeekendOctober 26, 2012
Strange Matter is definitely the place to be this weekend.
A Place To Bury Strangers will be performing at Strange Matter on Saturday, Oct. 27 with Bleeding Rainbow and Canary Oh Canary in support of their brand new album “Worship.”
A Place To Bury Strangers have often been called “the loudest band in New York”. This may very well be the case, but unlike much so-called “loud” rock and roll that’s out there, APTBS is not loud simply for the sake of it. The sonically overdriven sound they’ve accomplished is no clumsy accident, but a carefully cultivated and well-maintained entity all its own, fostered by an unbridled passion that’s clearly evident in every live show they play and each recording they make. A Place To Bury Strangers does not so much play songs as allow them to pour out. They are songs about longing, heartbreak and confusion played extremely well and at a passionately loud volume.

On Sunday, Oct. 28, indie pop group Hospitality will be gracing Strange Matter’s stage. Joining them are Teen, The Garbers and Herro Sugar. Hospitality just released their self-titled album and it’s full of dreamy pop goodness. They also released a limited edition 7″ featuring two new tracks, “The Drift” and “Monkey.”
The angular, intricate, and intelligent compositions of Hospitality signal a sophisticated new pop voice. Singer Amber Papini’s idiosyncratic songwriting and incisive lyrics coupled with the band’s rich arrangements on its self-titled debut explore youth, New York, and the bittersweet commingling of past and present in a way that feels just right, right now.
