Basement Transmissions Signals Summer Loud and Clear by Tommy Shannon
Dysmorphia

Saturday, June 11

The month of June for many of Basement Transmissions’ patrons also means the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation, and on June 11th, Basement Transmissions is hosting this year’s summer kickoff show.

For this year’s summer kickoff show, Basement Transmissions is featuring a variety of styles joining together under one roof in a celebration of musical diversity and a showcase of local talent.

This show will feature a variety of styles joining together under one roof in a celebration of musical diversity and a showcase of local talent.

Bathed in Formaldehyde and Primal Scream Therapy represent the growing metal scene in Erie. They exemplify two distinct styles of the genre: The former play a more melodic, Rise Records-esque style, and the latter commit to a thrash/death metal sound.

Well Below Average are just coming back from hiatus with a new drummer, and a pop punk sound in the vein of Blink 182 and All Time Low. In fact, you can probably expect to hear a few Blink covers during their set.

BT regulars and all-female band Dysmorphia bring their raw, straightforward punk stylings to the stage, while Jivan is one of the only representations of progressive hard rock for the BT crowd.

And to give your ears a break from all the blaring guitars and pounding drums is Jack Stauber, whose acoustic guitar will leave you wanting more. – Tommy Shannon
