Wierd: Solvent

Wierd Records top dog Pieter Schoolwerth, Glenn Maryansky (from Brooklyn band Blacklist) and guests keep the aural oddities—mainly of the cold-wave, minimal-synth and goth-tinged varieties—coming every Wednesday at this long-running affair. This week, the shindig sees a live performance from artist Solvent, the Ghostly International producer of melancholic synth-pop who's celebrating the release of a new album, Subject to Shift.
