Heliotrope 8 Recap
Local experimental music festival Heliotrope is now in it eighth year, with the 2011 version being the first time the event has moved to the Loring Theater. As always, the event brought together some of the very best bands playing music in our local scene and showcased them back to back over three straight nights. While our local music press seemed more interested in crappy British buzz bands and Bar B Q’s, we at Reviler (and especially Adam) made a point to cover the event as thoroughly as possible. From Day 1 we have live videos, photos from Adam and photos from Jon. From Day 2 we have live videos, photos from Adam and photos from Jon. Day 3 only had Adam left standing, but lucky he had enough in him to document the event for us all with his pictures. Our friend Empty’s Tapes was there all weekend as well and he had all of his equipment, so keep an eye out on his site for the chance to possibly hear some of the amazing sets that went down last weekend. Thank to everyone who put together this great event and we are already looking forward to next year!
