Free Fridays with Miike Snow at CARGO- 21/08/09

From the producers of Britney's grammy-winning ‘Toxic,' Pontus Winnberg and Kristian Carlsson (aka Bloodshy & Avant) team up with American Andrew Wyatt as Miike Snow. The Swedish electro-pop group take inspiration from the sickly brilliant Japanese director, Takashi Miike and add an extra ‘i' to their name for that ever so necessary distinguishing mark (yeah no its not a typo...). Fortunately, however, they also distinguish themselves musically with a pleasing combination of harmonious melodies, electro beats and evocative, melancholic lyrics, making this new age pop group something definitely worth checking out.

The Heavy are a curious band hailing from Noid, which is actually in Bath and not in some faraway, intergalactic space, who dare to cross all frontiers that exist in the music world, mixing up funk, rock, soul, indie, garage and punk to produce an eclectic and unique sound that surprisingly works and actually sounds really good. It sounds real good.

Next are the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Need an explanation? Well my writing skills are no match for the adept Brachosaurus or the Carnotaurus Caudipteryx, so I guess I'll leave it to them...

‘RRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH A time machine was sent back to just before all the dinosaurs went BOOOOOOOM!!! and died. horribly. and they said "RRAAAGH listen up future kids. we got the big tunes." and they sorted us out with a few dubplates. prehistoric dubplates made of granite. using the latest in free software the "big tunes" have begun to be uncovered and are ready for your listening. Listen.'

And the world has indeed been listening... TEED have been playing non-stop at both shows and festivals alike since they recently released their EP ‘All in One Sixty Dancehalls' on Greco-Roman. They've already visited Cargo twice but seeing as these dinosaurs are not just your ordinary dinosaurs (they're totally enormous extinct dinosaurs!), we've invited them back as we, and most of the Homo sapiens race, just can't get enough of them. So its definitely worth coming down and seeing these prehistoric masterminds in the flesh (or better said, in their ridiculously genius suits) as their dance-electro grooves will also get you moving like its the year -160 000 000 000!

DJing will be Tronik Youth spinning out disco, Goldierocks mixing up indie and electro and last but not least, Cargo's very own resident nosferatu ... COUNT CHOCULA!

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
