Heads up! The Hi-Desert’s freshly premier hot spot for live music has a new crew at its helm.
Gadi’s Showroom, located uptown along the 29 Palms Highway, features a gaudy yet conservative gathering place for local hipsters and arts enthusiasts to enjoy live music and entertainment, with a few cocktails on the tongue to ease the harsh desert vibes.
In the wake of the increasing hordes of LA hepcats and woozy dream-seekers coming to town, the Showroom looks to provide something new for those to check out. With the highly-acclaimed Pioneertown favorite, Pappy & Harriet’s, raising the bar of talent booking, the region is in need of a stark numero dos. Gadi’s Showroom aims to book only the best in Indie, Electronic and New-Age music, as well as the occasional Folk or Metal drifters.
To celebrate the birth of a new direction, Gadi’s Showroom recently added extreme darkwave queen Lingua Ignota to a bill in late November. Lingua Ignota is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Kristin Hayter, signed to the indie-metal label Profound Lore Records and LA’s respected Sargent House label. On her new album CALIGULA, Hayter’s vision is taken to a whole new level of grandeur. Purging her vengeful audial vision, the album soars beyond anything preceding it and reaches a new unparalleled sonic plane. Eschewing and disavowing genre altogether, Hayter builds her own world. She fully embodies the moniker Lingua Ignota, from the German mystic Hildegard of Bingen, meaning “unknown language” — this music has no home, any precedent or comparison could only be uneasily given, and there is nothing else like it in our contemporary realm.
“One of the most cutting edge and progressive new pieces of music in 2019” – Destroy//Exist
One thing remains unchanged, though: Hayter continues to explore themes of violence and vengeance through a survivalist narrative that is equal parts chilling and empowering. Working closely with Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets studio in Rhode Island, Hayter strips away much of the industrial and electronic elements of her previous work. Channeling the menacing intensity of her live performances, Hayter utilized unconventional recording techniques and live instrumentation to bring a frenetic energy to CALIGULA.
Lingua Ignota hits the Gadi’s Showroom stage on November 23rd. Doors will open at 7:30pm with the show kicking off at 8:30pm. Advance tickets are available now on Eventbrite, Facebook, and on the Gadi’s website, www.gadisbarandgrill.com/events. We simply cannot wait to see you there!
