I thought they were a good first act for the night, and I would happily see them again.
I was up really close because this was the band I was most looking forward to, and dancing my heart out when somebody fell in front of me. There was a commotion, and the next thing I knew somebody was flat on their back and immobile.
While other folks started helping them up, I rushed to the back of the club to seek someone on staff. I sat in the back of the hall by one of the pool tables for a large portin of their set. The headliner, Imperative Reaction , was great. I unfortunately, was not so great by the time they went on. By all rights I should have been dancing like crazy, because I really like the kind of music they were doing, but I was just too damned distracted to dance and really enjoy myself, until they got to the very last song of the night.
Day 2 of Convergence I decided to take it easy after two-nights of hard-partying. I actually made it in time to see all the bands, rolling up to the venues with my friends Nick and Sarah, shortly before the first act went on. It was some deep, heavy throbbing stuff. Music i could be equally at home dancing to or just hanging out and letting it pound me. Anyway, I thought it was pretty good. Next up was New Jersey electro-industrial act Panic Lift. Sounding to me like sort of a mix between harsh EBM and rock, they were on fire right out of the gate, really putting me in the mood to bounce around all over the place.
I think this set may have been my favorite point of the night, just from a pure industrial danceability standpoint. The next band was Chicago-based electronic rock act I:Scintilla. This was the one band of the evening that I had any prior familiarity with, having seen them perform at Dragon Con in Atlanta several years ago.
I decided at the time that I liked them a bunch; enough to buy a whole bunch of their music. Anyway, I:Scintilla are a really fun, high-energy band who put on a great stage show. It was a great set. Earlier in the week, a friend had told me he was jealous I was getting to see them. Certainly very dark and very German. Lots of guitars. While the show was good, some of us were seriously flagging due to acute lack of sleep, and needed food badly, so we cut out a bit early to get dinner and get them home so that they could rest up for Sunday.
Tomorrow, as they say, is another day. I got off to a slow start the first night of the festival. By which I mean I did some unplanned day-drinking and had a heavy lunch, then fell asleep for hours in the afternoon. I woke up with ten minutes until showtime, and as a result I missed most of the first act, Zenobia.
I will have to look up her music on the internet. A lot of what he played on Friday night sounded to me like if you took harsh EBM, stripped out the screamy vocals, and added in some traditional east-Asian instruments. I thought it was pretty good stuff, certainly good enough to hold my attention and not care that I was watching a guy at a table with a laptop. Would see again. She still did the thing where she comes down off the stage and walks among the audience while performing.
The set was really good. I ran into Aedra in the crowd, later and she remembered me from the last show I went to about a year ago, so that was cool. She had the new album for sale, but I completely forgot to buy a CD, so that kinda sucks. I guess I will just have to get it from the internet. I dig it. Of course, they are not. I know this song!
Then, during the FIRES performance, Aedra called him out in the crowd, and after that I felt weird about approaching him for different reasons. Maybe at some point during the weekend, though. In sum, Night one of Convergence: One fave band, good performances by two unfamiliar bands, one missed band, good friends. More on This Tune. Audio samples are below the video player.

Every different kind of heavy sounds appeared old-fashioned and nostalgic, and fell into the oblivion.
