Upcoming Events in Saigon: Turbo Goth + Demon Slayer @ RFC

brought to you by iLL

21h-23h | 31 May 2012
@ RFC - 25C Tu Xuong, District 3, HCM
FREE entrance

Leftfield electronic music showcase COME TO DADDY returns this month with Filipino electro-rockers TURBO GOTH and Vietnamese-American artist and multi-instrumentalist DEMON SLAYER at RFC on May 31.

Composed of chef Paolo Peralta (on guitars, drum beats, and electronic sampler) and artist/model Sarah Gaugler (on lead vocals), TURBO GOTH's sound conflates semi-experimental electronic music with distorted bass synths, aggressive beats, and punk-jazz noise guitars, stitched together by icy, ethereal vocals. From hole-in-the-wall venues in Manila to major festivals in Singapore, their live performances have been unpredictable and frenetic audiovisual feasts punctuated by Paolo's spontaneously spastic killer dance moves and Sarah’s monumental poses. Saigon denizens take note, this will be TURBO GOTH's first-ever Vietnam show, as they drop by on their way to CAMA Festival in Hanoi next month.

After half a decade worth of releases, performances and murals around the world, DEMON SLAYER, the nom de guerre of globe-trekking savant and space explorer Dan Nguyen, finally unleashed his much-anticipated new album, "Fears and Lovers", last March 2012. Constantly kinetic, dreamily exotic, and Jetsons-age funky, this show will feature live performances of new material that "pushes the boundaries of experimentation, complex song writing, and the possibilities of where electronic music can go" (SCV).
