Health, HSY, Fake Palms and Bad Channels @ The Horseshoe Tavern [NXNE 2015]

I was in excitement overload for this NXNE showcase presented by Buzz Records that took place at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern.
The bands that performed were Health (Not on the label, HSY, Fake Palms and Bad Channels.
I have to say it was my first time seeing three of the four acts performing.

Wow! I have to say that L.A.’s Health totally killed their set with their loud, experimental and electronic rock music.
It was so insane with people moshing like crazy!
Considering I heard about them playing NXNE a few years back and regretted not seeing them since they put on a kick-ass show.
I was happy and overwhelm seeing them.

HSY who I’ve seen various times, put on a memorable show.
Why is it memorable? Let’s say half-way through the set, Jude who sings and plays guitars collapsed on the stage floor.
It was a very scary and intense situation, they had to stop and see what was wrong.
Apparently from the running around in small circles, Jude had popped his kneecap.
After that the show went on and the band just killed it with it’s loud sludge punk rock music.
It was far better than last year’s set at Adelaide Hall with the crowds moshing and high energy.

One of the reasons I decided to go to the Horseshoe on Thursday night was to see Fake Palms.
Michael Le Riche (ex-The Darcys) who plays in the band, performed materials for an upcoming album of sorts.
So far the band has only put out one song which is called Sun Drips (Happens to be my favorite song of 2015).
Describing their music is a mix of lo-fi, noise alterna-pop which reminds me of Viet Cong.
I was very happy to finally see them perform live.

Another act to see for the first time was Bad Channels.
They are a duo who was recently signed to Buzz Records.
Their music is dark electronic pop.
It was hard to photograph because they turned down the lights so you can see the TV.

Overall it was a great showcase.
