As I briefly touched on in this week’s record review roundup, last week saw the release of half-local “wurkstep” duo Sich Mang’s first official full-length record, BLWNTOUT (Rainbow Body), and on Saturday they’ll be celebrating the LP with a huge party at a Michigan Avenue loft space. Rand Sevilla, the half of Sich Mang who’s been residing in Los Angeles for the past year, is back in town, and the reunited duo (which also features Eric Lee Gale of Golden Birthday) will be headlining a bill that also includes Neuport, Ultrademon, and another local weirdo production duo, Supreme Cuts. The location and other details of the show are secret, so if you want further information, shoot an e-mail to email@example.com. Sich Mang sets are known to get wild, so if that’s your sort of thing, this show is not to be missed.
Sich Mang also debuted a new, official music video today for the BLWNTOUT track “Koldsteal.” As the title suggests, the hilarious clip, which was put together by Commodore Gilgamesh of Everything Is Terrible!, sets the glitchy, trippy tune to chopped, spliced, and swirled footage of Lynn C. Thompson from Cold Steel Knives chopping a bunch of shit up with giant swords.
