"I don't think it's coincidence that after seeing Nazoranai I had a dream in which Chicago was destroyed by a Lovecraft-y supernatural force." - Dr. Neptune

"Don't I have APPS to remind me of Important Things like almost-free Nazoranai shows within blocks of my home?" - Kat O'Rly

"The Nazoranai set @theemptybottle is starting WAY louder than any part of the Big Ears set. Their set up is insane." - Sei Jin

The experimental trio of Stephen O'Malley (who we recently interviewed), Keiji Haino, and Oren Ambarchi (aka Nazoranai), played an Empty Bottle-presented Red Bull Sound Select show at the Empty Bottle on May 20. The show was part of a handful of North American gigs for the musicians who count SunnO))) and Khanate among their other projects.

Unfortunately we missed Oozing Wound and Ryley Walker, but enjoy some video and pictures of the headliners, below...
