10.09: Bipolaroid + Trampoline Team + Holy Wave + DJ 9ris 9ris – Siberia
Siberia – one of the most consistently impressive musical operations in the city – had to completely clear the schedule when the city started it’s war against music venues. Local psychedelic garage rockers Bipolaroid have the distinct honor of welcoming Siberia back to the fold.
By now, most of us are aware of City Hall’s latest attack in their sneaky and unpredictable War on Culture. A few weeks ago venerable Bywater institution Siberia ran into some permitting issues that caused them to suspend their expansive live music schedule, and just yesterday it appears a similar fate officially befell the similarly venerable Circle [...]
