"Fade To Light" - A Multidimensional Fashion Event

On February 29th the Crystal Ballroom will play host to a dynamic fashion show where each designer was encouraged to think outside the box regarding their runway presentation. Fade to Light aims to not just be a fashion show, but to be an experience that leaves the viewer with a solid understanding of each designer and the collections being shown.

Music by: Brainstorm

Brainstorm is like an eight-dollar smoothie of ecstatic art rock, gospel spirituals, and African highlife. This high energy 2-piece manages to seam together a variety of influences into one coherent onslaught of shimmering pop, which will put a smile on your face and a tune in your head. Crushing riffs, explosive percussion, old world chanting, casio disco, and jaunty tuba lines make Brainstorm one of the most exhilarating and unique bands around.

Multi-instrumentalists Adam Baz and Patrick Phillips formed Brainstorm in the summer of 2008, when they were recording with Portland's Ohioan and the Native Kin. They exchanged a mix tape, featuring such bands as USAisaMonster, Tinariwen, Ponytail, Sam Cooke, and Lightning Bolt, and quickly realized the extent of their musical compatibility. Now, two years into the project, their influences have synthesized into a fleshed-out brand of noise-pop that they can truly call their own.

Brainstorm released their first record Battling Giants on Lasercave in 2009. Received well by local press, the band toured throughout the following year. Their second release, a 7-inch EP called Beast in the Sky, was co-released on High Scores & Records and Lasercave in October 2010, and has been highly acclaimed by blogs, papers, and critics throughout the US and Europe.
