In what is starting to look like an annual tradition, the local label/collective l'animaux tryst (field) recordings' Tryst Haunt took over SPACE once again, declaring "SPACE is the place." Tempera (pictured below in a hut fashioned on the spot by our friends at the Pine Haven Collective) were celebrating the release of a new LP, while the shapeshifting Cursillistas and White Light were unveiling a split record and setting off for a couple weeks on the road (in the form of Matt L and Ian P supporting/opening/double-headlining a spat of shows across the country). A.M. Frank (above) finished off the live music portion of the evening with a rousing take on Suicide's no wave electro punk chaos, strobes included.
White Light and Cursillistas return to Maine today, with a show (again with Tempera) at BUOY in Kittery. Both artists will also be playing the Arootsakoostik Festival in New Sweden on Saturday.
