I am just going to label these photos. I am lazy as fuck and am behind in shit.
These are all from the Gimmie Noise Affiliyated Showcase with headliners Solid Gold, Doomtree, and Gayngs, spanning the three rooms of First Avenue. The event began at seven or so in the evening until two in the morning. My legs were jello after this.

Mystery Palace started off the night with this interesting music at seven or so in the mainroom.

After Mystery Palace, I headed to the 7th St. Entry, and checked out Albert, I left shortly to catch the small sets by Doomtree members in the Record room. This here is P.O.S. rapping here and there in the crowd and on speakers.

Shortly after P.O.S. finished his set, I headed out, but decided to go back in to check out Dessa's set. That was a big mistake as the Record room easily began to fill to suffocation beyond capacity for the darling raptress of the collective. As you can see it was so packed I would not have been able to make it through without ruffling any feathers.

After the Dessa exhibition, I caught Leisure Birds outside in the mainroom, a trio it seemed of alternative music if thats what I remember. This was a few weeks ago, so do not judge my memory. 

After shortly listening to them, I hustled through to the Entry to catch Nutzman and Muck collective alternative dub-rap? It was interesting to say the least. 

Mike Mictlan and his performance in the Record room, lights camera action.

Lazerbeak put on the most impressive set for me. Reminds of me of Araab Muzik, a little slower, but equally talented.

The crowd waiting. I run into Anna, Joe, and Aaron.

Solid Gold begins their swooning. I was frustrated as fuck during this performance with the excessive use of the smoke machine. IT FUCKING FUCKS UP MY PHOTOS.

This is the highlight I would say, aside from main feature GAYNGS. The energy and performance of this was a site to experience once at least. The band is called Har Mar Superstar, spearheaded by a little chubby man that may remind you of Ron Jeremy.

Next to near the end was the whole Doomtree collective including Cecil Otter and minus Sims on the mainroom stage. 

The beginning of the show with "The Gaudy Side Of Town"
