OBEY presents Dreamcrusher (NYC) w/ Grief + Junk Entity

December 6 @ 9:00 pm - 11:59 pm

Our second show of the season features NYC’s force-forward industrial provocateur Dreamcrusher with locals Grief and Junk Entity. Scrambling weirdo waves of noise, punk, techno and heavy power into a night of expressive tension. Join us as the light grows slim and the spirit needs out.

Playing a fringe yet stylized version of noise and industrial that is intelligent, expressive, and powerfully physical, Dreamcrusher is the solo musical endeavour of multidisciplinary artist Luwayne Glass- hailing from Wichita, Kansas. Formed in 2003, reveling in the aughts of myspace, tumblr, soundcloud and other social media sites, Dreamcrusher began as a project of self-discovery and self-release while contained in a queer, gender non-binary (they/them pronouns, not he/him or she/her), black body in America’s bible belt. Creating over thirty releases, splits, extended plays and singles all before 2014, without ever releasing a full-length album, each project shows a very individual growth while sitting in many scenes that often don’t lend themselves to explicit artistic morphing. The Dreamcrusher project and their releases have become increasingly more personal, confrontational, concise and challenging. After migrating from Kansas to New York City, their success hit new heights diving headfirst into the American live DIY scene. Dreamcrusher continues to alter the overwhelmingly rigid aesthetic of ‘noise’ and underground scenes by expanding the meaning of ‘genre’, and in many ways completely distorting ‘genre’ to form to them rather than the reverse. They choose not to underestimate the intelligence of their audience by challenging them at every sea change.
