While at MFNW 2012 in Portland, Oregon we put our heads together with director Greg Hunt and longtime festival producer Trevor Solomon to curate ‘Room 205 live’. Held at venerable downtown venue Ted’s, (formerly Berbati’s Pan), the night showcased five featured artists from our collaborative Sound & Vision series Room 205. No elaborate sets and no second takes. Just 100% live shredding and raw weirdness. Enjoy!

BIO
Los Angeles-based Tropic Of Cancer is the solo project of Camella Lobo. Though her music has been labeled gothic, shoegaze and drone pop, Lobo’s take on her influences is anything but nostalgic. Formerly a duo with minimal electronic artist Silent Servant (Juan Mendez), Tropic Of Cancer has been stoking a slow-burning cult following since its first EP (The Dull Age) on Berlin-based label, Downwards in 2009. The Sorrow of Two Blooms, released in 2011 on UK imprint Blackest Ever Black, catapulted the band into the underground spotlight. Since then, Lobo has released a handful of acclaimed recordings on Mannequin Records, Sleeperhold and Ghostly International. Her first full-length LP is due early 2013 on Blackest Ever Black. Lobo performs live with assistance from Taylor Burch of the band DVA DAMAS. This song rules.
