What you missed if you weren’t at Fountain Airship in downtown Phoenix Friday night:

The show: A bumpin’ house party hosted by Phantom Airship and The Fountain Space showcasing a group of Phoenix based musicians, all pioneers of their genres, bringing psychedelic, post punk, electronica and space rock vibes to a whole other level. They are pushing their way into self-proclaimed genres with versatility and originality in sound. I.am.hologram says he is most accurately categorized as “electric church music” and Zodiac Bash described their group as “psychedelic synth rock”. I noticed an overlap in that a couple of these bands seemed to have a progressive rock Mars Volta type influence, specifically with vocal style choice, but they were all so different from each other it’s hard to even make that comparison. The DJs brought a refreshing sound far from the typical ‘womp womp womp’ of dubstep, combining unique trip hop, acid house and ambient beats with samples from the mainstream music world restructuring them into new and impressive tracks. The crowd was enthusiastic, supportive and not at all hesitant to get involved- dancing, freestyling over the DJ’s beats and jamming out in the practice room.

The venue: The Fountain Space is a music and art studio space at a residential house. At this particular show the hosts provided kegs of premium beer and food made fresh by Mario was available for purchase. When you combine the intimate, laid back atmosphere of a house party with the adrenaline and energy of a live concert the results are nothing short of a good time.
