The ultimate space-rockin’, shoegazin’, downbeat psyche-rock band Bardo Pond brings to Sala their long-perfected recipe of lengthy jams laden with trippy vocals and smoky guitar noodling. Veterans of over 50 releases since 1991, their explicitly drug-inspired oeuvre continues to present prime chillout vibes. They’re the hometown Philly favourites of GY!BE, opening their 2000 and 2012 concerts.
Instrumental post-metal four-piece locals Near Grey generate lush and dense waves of guitars and crashing drums in their sonic explorations. With shoegazy song-lengths and epic post-rock one-string solos, Near Grey retains a whimsical and lyrical progression to their music, keeping it lively, almost jazzy at times.
