Last weekend, Bryan and I went to Gowanus performance space Issue Project Room to hear neo-Italo Disco/Krautrock-esque duo Invisible Conga People (go here to download one of their songs). It was hot as hell in the performance space, full of people wearing odd assortments of itsy bits of clothing, and the “liquid light show” dripped some of its liquids on us (which created a semi-permanent mark not unlike manic panic stains on skin). Still it was worth roughing these minor setbacks, as Invisible Conga People’s very original brand of kinda dancy, kinda druggy ambiance equals my kind of groove. I mean these guys make their own instruments (!!!) and feed everything through a guitar peddle, securing them a place in that oh so wonderful gray area between dance and noise. (Make more records, Invisible Conga People!)
And do also watch a very diy interview done by agingsnob herself with Plovnick and Aladdin’s Garden host Adam Watt at iheartbrooklyn.tv episode 3.
