ZeroFest Show Profile #2: Fri., Oct. 3 @ Bermuda Triangle

Each Thursday in September, Square Zeros will profile one night of ZeroFest, our four-day, twenty-band festival running from October 2–5 at four Brooklyn venues.

The venue:
Bushwick's Bermuda Triangle opened this spring as an art and performance space in the Tea Factory Lofts at 175 Stockholm Street (between Wilson and Knickerbocker Aves. Helmed by co-curators Stephanie Browne and James Watson, Bermuda Triangle has carved out its space in the local DIY community, hosting a roundtable discussion on alternative art curating during Bushwick Open Studios and a series of art and music shows across the summer. It's quickly become one of our favorite places to catch a show, see some art, or just grill out and drink beers with James and Stephanie. ZeroFest hits Bermuda Triangle on Friday, October 3, but you won't want to miss their music curator's panel on Saturday, September 27, featuring contributions from Chris Carr of Brooklyn Wildlife (SZ #22), Lani Combier-Kapel of Silent Barn, Danny Krug of 1.21 Gigawatts, Win Scarlett of slackgaze (SZ #18), and yours truly.

The bands:

The second night of ZeroFest begins with lo-fi indie rockers The Planes (Stephen Perry, SZ #2). We know what you're thinking — what does "indie rock" even mean in 2014? — and we'll tell you who has the answer.

The Planes are freewheeling, clever, and hooky as hell, with a style that nods to the great American alt-rock bands of the 80s and 90s without ever sounding stale. Music lovers making music for music lovers.

While The Planes bring you in with tight, ever-present melodic hooks, there's an undeniable attraction in the way noise-rockers The Black Black (Jon Daily, SZ #26) make you wait for it. It's not unusual for moments of raw drum and bass and spoken vocals to create a tension that surges as they come into contact with howled lyrics and razor-sharp guitar.

Daily and crew bring a whole lot of noise for a three-piece, but then, so did the first iteration of Jawbox. Late-80s Dischord certainly wouldn't be a bad scene for these guys, but — lucky us — we've got them right here and right now.

Psych-surf trio Mad Doctors (Seth Applebaum and Greg Hanson, SZ #20) follow next — part-sideshow, all-shredfest. Fresh off of recording their first LP, Snake Oil Superscience, their live show is surely a force to be reckoned with.

If you've ever found yourself asking, "Why don't people at Brooklyn get crazy at shows?" chances are, you've been sleeping on Mad Doctors. Greg and Seth are at the helms of King Pizza Records and Ghostload Sound, respectively, and their fun-loving garage rock family runs deep.

Combining the riffiness and precision of The Jam with the teenage urgency and wit of The Buzzcocks, Sunset Guns (Derek Hawkins and Jon Mann, SZ #10) craft a fun and energetic garage punk free of smoke and mirrors.

Coming off a summer thick with Brooklyn show dates (including a pair of Bermuda Triangle appearances), these guys have never been tighter. If you've got more than four people in the crowd at a Sunset Guns, one of those people will crowd-surf. It's an incontrovertible law.

Next up is the Official House BandTM of Bermuda Triangle, Hounds Basket, who have been making moves this summer. Shows. Videos. Shows. A new record in the works. Shows. Their super-heavy grunge-inflected noise rock will cure what ails you like bonging a beer out of your worst enemy's skull and surprise you like realizing that they poured a shot of whiskey into that beer when you weren't looking.

If you don't know, now you know.

Headlining night two of ZeroFest is the hardest-working punk rock band in Brooklyn, Vulture Shit (SZ #25). The downright-charmingly named Friday Nights with Vulture ShitTM series just ended on Labor Day weekend, after a month where the trio played at least one show every week the previous month, including high-profile engagements at Brooklyn Night Bazaar and the Fuck School(Work)Fest at Shea Stadium.

But we all know full-well that any true punk band's better in tight quarters. You can count on these guys to be explosive at Bermuda Triangle.
