Happening Tonight: Shapednoise / Ultraorthodox / AMFJ

Happening Tonight: Shapednoise / Ultraorthodox / AMFJ

Published September 7, 2016

Despite its ‘green’ reputation, Icelanders are said to have one of the highest energy-use rates per capita in the world. Tonight Húrra offers a chance to see the these power-suckers at play.

A three-part bill featuring Shapednoise (okay, technically he is from Italy), Ultraorthodox, and AMFJ. The show will be a writhing display of wires, sounds, and high qual. production. Fact Magazine described Shapednoise’s sound as “physical in the way that fevers and heartbreak and fear are physical, affecting every sense at once and casting a shadow over every inch of your periphery.”

Get plugged in tonight at Húrra. Doors open at 21:00. 2.000 ISK.
