GEODESIQUE DOUBLE EP RELEASE SHOW
Downtempo Electronic music from Lala Fairshadow, Zoe Sakti and Oni Sakti
The man behind the curtain, an invisible orchestrator of Oz, Oni Sakti is never without a cigarette hanging from his mouth. Constantly surrounded by a billow of smoke, he sprouts 8 arms and 8 legs in the shadows like a creature from the deep…always moving, always planning, twisting knobs and moving wires. Red lips and a velvet voice, Lala Fairshadow smiles with her golden eyes, and with her eyes only. On the stage she croons into the microphone, plunging you into thoughts of air raid sirens and soldiers lost. She is rumored to be an immortal soul, a reincarnate of many women of the past including Clara Rockmore and Ingrid Bergman. Zoe Sakti arrived in a milk crate, 3 years ago, at the Shinto House. There was no return address. Still no one knows how she arrived or from whence she came from. When you ask, she will quietly mumble a different answer every time but you can clearly make out rather violent threats to the Chinese government. Quiet and reserved, she spends her off-stage time staring at the stars, scritch-scratching equations on piles of crumpled paper which she converts to synth basslines and occasional well-masked vocals.

Minneapolis goth band Scarlet Mother was formed as a 2-piece in the Spring of 2011 by singer Sarah Rattanavong-Wash, and guitarist Neil McKay (formerly of Autumn). Bassist Jared Redbow joined them in the Spring of 2012 which solidified the band. They are currently playing live shows in the Twin Cities area and a full length CD is forthcoming.
The history of UZZA is essentially the history of lead singer Tabatha Predovich and guitarist/keyboardist Rich Patterson who have been writing and performing together since meeting in Detroit back in 2001. At that time, Tabatha was fronting a popular rock outfit called Radium. Meanwhile, Rich Patterson was leading a band called The Resonators when Tabatha tapped him to join Radium. By the time 2003 rolled around, Radium had transformed into UZZA (named for a goddess in Egyptian mythology). During UZZA’s time in Detroit they managed to garner a fair amount of attention from local press.
Solo, female darkwave electronica with intimate singer/songwriter elements. Industrial and trip-hop influences weave through the music while the ethereal vocals cascade through each song. Live or on your headphones the dance beats and magical lyrics Ficshe delivers always generate a consuming, intoxicating experience.
