The countdown to New York’s premiere Alternative festival A Murder of Crows is almost over, with the incredible line-up for the two day fest kicking off this Saturday, September 15th. The event will be featuring the best and darkest of contemporary post-punk, goth and dark wave bands including Ritual Howls, Actors, Bootblacks and Raygun Agency’s own Vowws and Astari Nite.
Brought to you by TempleChurch Entertainment, the festival will be taking over all 3 floors of the greenpoint venue Brooklyn Bazaar, featuring a variety of satellite parties, DJ’s and even a Dark Market, as well as the stellar live performances. The festival has become a Mecca for forerunners in the post-post-punk, alt and new wave scene, drawing the likes of synth drenched and electrifying new-wave authorities ACTORS amongst others.
Fresh off their most recent release “Burn II”, featuring the vocals of the enigmatic Kristina Esfandiari (King Woman and Miserable), death pop duo VOWWS will be one of the headliners of the fest along with the before-mentioned heavyweights. Their performance will come as the second festival appearance this Fall in support their latest album Under The World (Via Anti-language Records) before heading to Dia De Los Deftones festival in November, and then for a short stint in Australia.
Goth powerhouses Astari Nite will also be joining the line-up, and are also soaring high from their successful and heart-string-pulling release of full length, Midnight Conversations. Their performance at A Murder of Crows precedes their jump over the pond to Germany, where they will be performing a series of shows for the Dance Macabre Festivals in December.
