Moon Duo / Frustrations / Protomartyr / Bad Indians $7 9pm
Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 9pm
Moon Duo was formed by Ripley Johnson of Wooden Shjips and Sanae Yamada in San Francisco in 2009. Inspired initially by free jazz duos, such as John Coltrane and Rashied Ali, Moon Duo counts such variant groups as Silver Apples, Royal Trux, Moolah, Suicide, and Cluster as touchstones. Utilizing primarily guitar, keyboards, and vocals, the Duo plays space against form to create a primeval sound experience. After a debut 12" single on Sick Thirst, the group released the acclaimed Killing Time EP on Sacred Bones, followed by Escape on Woodsist. Their first proper LP, Mazes, was released on Sacred Bones and Souterrain Transmissions in 2011.


"As with any great EP, (Moon Duo) leaves you aching for more as the blurred visions of the A-side peak with "Speed" and then give way to slower mindscapes on the flip that burn low and practically beg to pick back up into a fevered beat." - Raven Sings The Blues, 2009

"Ripley Johnson from Wooden Shjips teams up with Sanae Yamada to create Moon Duo, and births a sorta Kraut-inspired (the motorik Neu!-beats especially) psych record that blows hundreds of stoner bands out of the water and back into their parents' basements. Best new record in a long, long while."
- Andreas Knutsen, Other Music 2009

"If you like your goth music dignified and spooky like Death in June, then you should come over and we’ll have a little goth-together where we have some beers and turn off the lights and listen to Moon Duo." - Vice Magazine, Nov 2009
