Coming Up: Mission Zero’s CD Release Party

The Desultory Theatre Club presents…

Mission Zero’s CD Release Party!!

Mission Zero CD release party at Cafe Nine, New Haven, on Saturday, May 2, 2015 Join us for an evening you won’t soon forget as we team up with 3 great bands, including New Haven’s very own Mission Zero, to invade “The musician’s living room”, Cafe 9, for their newest CD release! Starring:

Boy Girl Party (NYC)

Boy Girl Party has a little chip on their shoulder, but a few minutes on the dance floor shakes it off. Sincerely nerdy and unabashedly silly, they are on a constant hunt for new band friends and dance partners with a decent sense of time and a better sense of humor.

Teen Girl Scientist Monthly (NYC)

Teen Girl Scientist Monthly is a 6-piece rock group from Brooklyn. They sound like Ra Ra Riot and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah making out in the bathroom.

And featuring Mission Zero!

New Haven’s very own Mission Zero has been compared to duos “Phantogram” and “The Eurythmics”, as they combine “live and digital” to create music that embodies the power and freedom they feel by going it (mostly) alone and keeping total creative control of their art. They are pumped and so ready to release this new album for all of you to enjoy!

Tickets are $7 and it’s 21+, Ladies and Gents!

Saturday, May 2, 2015 – Show starts 9:30/10(ish) PM!

Be prepared to celebrate and have a good time!

Special thanks to Cafe 9! Check them out!

There’s always some kind of great live music going on there!


Mission 0 and Forget, Forget

Mission Zero & Forget, Forget - The Desultory Theatre ClubThe Desultory Theatre Club and Snapper Magee’s present…

Our favorite sexy rockers MISSION ZERO (New Haven) and the really cool music of FORGET, FORGET (Portland, ME)!!

MISSION ZERO plays smart, sexy trip-hop indie-pop.

Growing up playing a range of musical instruments together, siblings Chenot and David crafted and honed their ability to communicate telepathically as performers. After touring the world separately and together in various bands, they decided to join forces as Mission Zero. Intentionally forgoing traditional pop instrumentation, the duo focuses on their strong suits – powerful, sultry vocals and blistering, dynamic percussion – supported live by a unique body of synthesized sounds (lovingly referred to by the band as The Robots).

Their live show runs the musical gamut, including explosive stomping synth-pop that provokes an irresistible need to dance.

A commitment to an eco-chic lifestyle has led to an album and several singles recorded in a studio powered by solar energy, as well as a compressed stage set-up, designed and built (by drummer David) using recycled and reclaimed steel.

Mission Zero’s latest single, “12345678!” (“A perfect pop song” says Groove Magazine) was released alongside an animated video and interactive video game.

FORGET, FORGET‘s debut album, “We Are All,” is driven by songwriter Tyler DeVos’s work with adults living with mental illness. The lyrical content is a collage of quotes and excerpts uttered by people with psychosis who live in several of the group homes where he works. “DeVos puts those words – cloaked in metaphor and wild imagery, and yet strangely universal – to a sweeping soundtrack that heightens the otherworldly nature of the words,” writes Emily Burnham of the Bangor Daily News.

Their sound is lush, expansive, and multi-layered, yet it is crafted to be fundamentally accessible. It has been labeled as indie-rock and chamber-pop among other things. Guitar, synth, and string parts are layered atop a foundation of tight, driving drums and bass. Three- and four-part vocal harmonies fill out the arrangements lushly and beautifully. DeVos is the primary lead vocalist, with multi-instrumentalist Patia Maule contributing lead vocals on several songs.

Seeing Forget, Forget perform live is an unforgettable experience. The music is delivered compellingly and passionately. Forget, Forget has won over crowds at numerous venues in Northern New England, including Port City Music Hall in Portland, ME, The Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA, Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, and the Penobscot Theater in Bangor, ME.

“We Are All” is dedicated to people who live with mental illness.

Tickets – $5.00

Party starts at 9pm – Show begins at 10pm!

21 and Over only.
