On November 18th, a cold and rainy Monday night, Miami-based band Las Nubes performed a compelling show at Trans-Pecos in Queens. Self-identified as Lo-fi fuzz-worshipping pelotudas en Miami that just wanna shred, Las Nubes produces raucous yet dreamy punk with the effect of a tonic. Fronted by Ale Campos on guitar and vocals, and joined by Emile Milgrim on drums, Gabriel Duque on guitar, and Cuci Amador on bass, the band was a welcome antidote to the otherwise dreary evening.
Like the body’s connective tissues, our experience of the present moment is malleable. What we are conscious of changes our perception. Contemporary performance directs this consciousness, engaging our senses to elicit experience.
