Akasha Blade Opens for Mi Ami at DDG March 12

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Saturday, March 12, 2011

Akasha Blade, a.k.a. the one-man noise factory Adam Cooper, is a sculptor of indie knack. A talented side man for lo-fi indie dreamcatcher Annie Sachs, a.k.a. Tickley Feather, Cooper mixes an intertwining throwdown of basted punk, saucy noise, and dancey electro-clash like a mad scientist. But you can only truly experience his work two ways: by snagging a copy of his crunchy 20-minute cassette release for Linear B, You Will Be Recycled, or shuffling your way to Danger Danger Gallery tonight, where he’ll work his alchemy on stage (although, seriously, you need to do both–and, if you can, get your hands on one of the limited edition copies featuring silk-screened jacket art by Jamie Dillion, DO IT). And to sweeten the pot, catch the guitar & skins noise-turned-synth & machine lush of San Fran/NYC’s experimental indie duo Mi Ami, like you should. Joining them will also be the on-slaught mind-fuck stage show of post-punk/garage-rock trio Northern Liberties (whose slew of releases don’t do justice to their shredded art) and the vintage, spastic art-punk smacks of Philly’s Combine to hold you over. It’s about to get weird, in a very good way, at the gallery this evening! Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 8pm, $5-$10, 21+ (Photo by Holly Landergan) – Annamarya Scaccia
