Glass Candy to Headline Moonfest 19
Portland, Oregon, Italo-disco purveyors Glass Candy are set to headline 2011's edition of Moonfest. The duo's icy-cold synth lines, provided by producer and keyboardist Johnny Jewel, and haunting ethereal vocals, diffused by singer Ida No, are the ideal choice to wind down the ghoulish revelry on Clematis Street -- now in its 19th year.
This flagship act for New York disco-pop label Italians Do It Better (Jewel is part owner) is putting the finishing touches on its third album, Body Work. A new, shimmering, 12-inch single, "Warm Winter," with kicked-up BPMs, hints at a revamped Glass Candy sound with more confectionery gravitas. Preview it after the jump.
Sweet Chariots, Darling Sweets, Luna Rex, and Band in Heaven are a few of the other acts slated to perform. Additionally, Doorway 27 plans on reuniting yet another time to rock the main stage.
Moonfest is completely free thanks in part to Respectable Street proprietor Rodney Mayo and event sponsors.
Sample Glass Candy's heftier impetus and sassier swag on "Warm in the Winter." A perfect tune for South Florida's winter, eh?
Moonfest. With Glass Candy, Doorway 27, Sweet Chariots, Darling Sweets, Luna Rex, and Band in Heaven. 7 p.m. Saturday, October 29. No cover; VIP is $50 in advance, $60 at the door. Click here.
