    Friday, February 15 at the rendezvous jewelbox theater black booking presents Blackpool Astronomy, Isis and the ghost and Vinca Minor. Blackpool astronomy is a mix of dark soundscape's classic goth and hard-hitting shoe gaze. Blackpool Astronomy features Jeff McCollough on bass and guitar and Ben Madonna on drums. Jeff and Dan have been playing together for 20 years off and on and they are both musicians of plenty of time under their belt. Jeff has played in many bands including with members of Lapis.Modest Mouse, Red Stars Theory and Suffering and The hideous thieves. His well known love of gothic music brings an authenticity as this band is his first return to the the goth scene in 20 years, Ben has been in numerous bands including UN, the high priests of panic along with Jeff and current hard-core favorites Left Askew. Isis and the ghost is the solo project of the former lead singer of Sweet chariot and revels in the same dark place but is even darker with sonic textures of chaos and mysticism. Winters voice is haunting and breathtaking and if you're in the mood for some Swans like discourse this is right up your alley. Vinca Minor features Matthew Menovick who has an long musical resume as well. Menovcik has also contributed a track to the Daniel Johnston tribute record, I Killed The Monster, with his project with Kramer, ROPE, INC., which also featured Sufjan Stevens, Mike Watt, and Dot Allison among others. He has performed around the US and Italy with his band Saeta, where he is the vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter, and the now defunct Ms. Led, where he was the bass player. Menovcik has additionally been involved in film scoring for the past several years and completed the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Summer Intensive Program. He has also had Saeta's song, You Fade, used in the hit Italian film Giorni e Nuvole. A short film the scored, C.B. which was part of the Seattle International Film Festival's Fly Film Making Challenge. He is currently preparing the the release of the new Vinca Minor album, Capital of Sorrow, and his short film of the same name as well as working on the soundtrack to the film The Anniversary by Allison Moland. All in all it's a hell of a good show for anyone who wants to see some great live local music from people who have a proven track record and a great value at five dollars for the entire night
