The Blue Angel Lounge
The six piece darkly psychedelic outfit TBAL took their name from the 1960’s club in New York City that offered Nico (Velvet Underground) her first live performances in America.
Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, a fan of the band, assisted with production of “Narcotica”, and in 2012 The Blue Angel Lounge supported BJM on a 10 show tour of the United States, earning rave reviews.
Strangers to the mainstream, but revered by a steadily expanding fanbase around the world, the band have earned the respect of other groups such as Interpol, The Dandy Warhols, and A Place To Bury Strangers and have been invited to support them on tour.
Thanks to the people of Fifth Floor, Blitzgigs is giving away a double pass to the gig. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name.

The Third Sound
The self titled debut album, of dark, fuzzed up psych tinted tracks held together by Haekon’s deep vocals, was recorded in Rome with help from friend Francesco D’Onofrio.
Haekon soon relocated to Berlin where The Third Sound evolved into a full 5 piece band. The Third Sound debut album was released on ‘a’ Recordings ltd., the label of Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe, who invited the band to open for BJM on their 2012 European tour.
Hypnotic soundscape ballads to tweaked out and fuzzed up numbers, layering both serene and abrasive guitars over husky vocals and locked in rhythms.
Drawn from a collective obsession with fringe philosophy and post-new-age consciousness, Self Initiation evokes the moods & spaces of 4AD’s early roster (Swans, Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins), with a nod to contemporaries The Soft Moon, Factory Floor & Portishead’s ‘Third’.
Thick pulsing rhythms erupt into glorious, cascading conclusion; from narcissistic rants, to sickly crooned anthems; from the outer regions of reality to the depths of the subconscious, a white shadow emerging from the process: ASCETIC.
Two Step Horror
Two Step Horror is a duo formed by Thordur Griemsson and Anna Margreet Bjoernsson in November 2008. TSH are a part of Vebeth.
Their first record Living Room Music was released in the Spring of 2011 with Outlier Records. Their second record was released in Spring of 2012 by Vebeth. Two Step Horror are releasing their third record in the Fall of 2013.
“Straight outta Twin Peaks, like a hypnotic bullet… a bullet of quietly bewitching, creepy lovelines… Or lovely creepiness.”
The Sun And The Wolf
Explosive and overdriven by rhythm and blues, Sun and the Wolf create a wonderland soaked in psychedelia on their debut album ‘White Buffalo’.
With tales of heartbreak, debauchery and deceit echoing from a far away room, the reverb and guitar driven rock of this Berlin based four-piece shows a band soulful and dark in their delivery, live and on record.
Brace/Choir is a trancerock quartet founded in Berlin, Germany in 2006. Musically, the band channel a dark, minimalist psychedelia to resurrect such classic themes as heartbreak, car accidents, and identity theft.
Brace/Choir also takes turns singing the alternately mantra-like and narrative texts. Band members switch instruments with each song (both live and in the studio), allowing each instrument to speak with a different voice.
Their shadowy and ectsatic rhythm and blues is continuously recast over shifting organ drones and is reminiscent of such diverse bands as Bongwater, Ride, and Faust.
