Grouper is the assumed name of Northern Californian artist Liz Harris. After several years in the underground she released the 2008 album which defined her sound; 'Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill' and achieved an unprecedented amount of critical acclaim, with Pitchfork mentioning it in their top albums of 2008, touting it as 'druggy and sexy and arty and pretty, but never pretentious'.  In 2009 she toured the USA in support of Animal Collective and continues to stun audiences worldwide. Animal Hospital's Kevin Micka buries himself in a pile of electronics-shelves of effects, mixing consoles, amps and delay units-while patiently constructing a layered nest of loops consisting of live drum beats, guitar chords, scrapes, chucks, chimes, and melodies. Brooklyn's Melaena Cadizrecently recorded an album featuring SPACE friends Brown Bird and Matt Bauer and tonight she's joined by Portland's own Vince Nez (The Last Sip). Planets Around the Sun keeps the party going with their dub Solar Soundsystem in between sets.
