Vaporeyes w/s/g Ampevene
June 24 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$15 – $20
Vaporeyes is a psychedelic/ progressive rock band from Syracuse, NY. A focus on improvisation drives their live performances and informs their songwriting, creating an ever-shifting and unique sound equally at home amongst jam bands as it is with modern psychedelia.
Having shared the stage with many national acts in the jam band scene such as Jimkata, Zoogma, Papadosio, The Werks, RAQ, Kung Fu, Aqueous, Brothers Past, DrFameus, Tauk, Spafford, Cycles, and more, the Vaporeyes live show is energetic, spontaneous, and never the same twice.
2019-2020 saw two SAMMY award winning releases for Vaporeyes. The second of which, Cantrips, was fully crowdfunded by their fans on Kickstarter
Lark Hall Presents Vaporeyes w/s/g Ampevene image
A pure listening and visceral experience, Ampevene blends a free form frenzy, jagged riffs, and hypnotic rhythms into a tight, psychedelic, sonic landscape, designed to trip up and trip out any listener. Ampevene draws influence from renowned artists such as The Mars Volta, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, TOOL, Mastodon, King Crimson, John Frusciante, and more, yet somehow manages to create something completely unique for their listeners. An Ampevene live show will walk you through an experimentation of sounds ranging from soft floating grooves to heavy math based confusion, and even downright noise. Yet somehow their complexity doesn’t outshine the pure emotion and even comfort that the songs exude at the same time. Ampevene has been direct support for notable acts including Moon Hooch, Consider The Source, Aqueous, Echotest, Lespecial, and Felix Martin, and been a part of festivals that include acts such as Dopapod, Lotus, Mihali, Papadosio, Circles Around The Sun, Kung Fu,, The Breakfast, and more. Ampevene was also a featured act at Lark Fest, the biggest one day street festival in New York State, was voted top 8 in the state by a NYS Music readers poll, and nominated Best Jam Band in Albany by The Eddies.
“Ampevene delivers a highly energetic, atmospheric environment, tearing the borders between every genre at their disposal. Ampevene continues to set the bar high for progressive rock throughout New York, keeping spectators on their heels from their
improvisational clash of metal and jazz.” – Karissa Doerr, NYS Music
