THIS EVENT HAS ENDED
Blonde Redhead is an alternative rock or indie rock band. It was formed by Kazu Makino, Maki Takahashi and Italian twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace. They take their name from a song by DNA, a 70's and 80's no wave band from New York. Kazu Makino is married to Amedeo Pace.

Amedeo and Simone Pace were born in Milan and grew up in Montreal, but moved later on to Boston to study jazz. After earning their Bachelor's degrees, they began playing in the New York City underground music scene. The Pace brothers and Kazu Makino and Maki Takahashi - Japanese art students - formed the band in 1993 after a chance meeting at an Italian restaurant in New York.

Blonde Redhead caught the attention of Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, who produced their self-titled debut in 1993. Shortly afterwards, Maki Takahashi left the band, and the remaining band members continued as a trio. On their third album, Fake Can Be Just as Good, they were joined by Vern Rumsey of Unwound as a guest bassist. After this, they continued without a bass player for the release of the remainder of their albums. On their fourth album, In an Expression of the Inexpressible, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi was hired as producer, as well as contributing to / singing on the song "Futurism vs. Passeism Part 2". Guy Picciotto also produced their records, Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons and Misery Is a Butterfly. Alan Moulder (Nine Inch Nails, U2, Smashing Pumpkins) produced their most recent record, 23.

---------

Blonde Redhead has always been a band that innovates with each album. They challenge themselves with each recording situation, and the results have been stunning every time. Their music is always inspired by the same emotions, but their tastes and ways they choose to execute those emotions are constantly evolving. It was the early conversations about how to make this record that led the band to work with the up and coming Swedish duo Van Rivers and The Subliminal Kid (Henrik von Sivers and Peder Mannerfelt) as producers on the record. Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck) also came on board to record the tracks that would eventually be used in Stockholm.

---------

Formed in New York City in 1995, Blonde Redhead features Kazu Makino on vocals & rhythm guitar, and twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace on drums & vocals and lead guitar, respectively. The band's early sound was primarily noted for its noise rock influences, but evolved into a more polished sound, incorporating elements of dream pop, shoegaze and other genres.

---------

Blonde Redhead are that rarest of things – a band whose voice has grown stronger, clearer and more distinctive with every record that they have made. Their reward for this has been an audience whose numbers have quietly grown over the course of their career, almost entirely by word of mouth...
