Terrific Kids bring in chaotic show by Dri Hiev

Local arts collective Terrific Kids turned the downstairs of the old firehall into a loud, sweaty, noisy venue, April 13.

 I missed the first gig from local noise rock duo Touching God (Sean Warkentin and Adrian Sutherland).

But arrived in time for the return of Calgary noise rock band Dri Hiev.

The last time I saw them was at the first Electric Eye Music Festival in 2015. They were just as crazy as I remembered them, though they were trimmed down to a bassist/keyboardist, guitarist/drum machine operator and a frenetic lead singer , bouncing all over the tiny stage, emerging though the smoke surrounding the stage.


 They were all about  loud, dissonant noise which had a heavy techno and industrial style music feel to it.

 It was a chaotic scene in the darkened brick basement with the frontman howling and hissing, spilling beer on the stage trying to mop it up mid song before jumping into the audience and writhing on the floor.

A disturbing black and white movie played behind the band. It felt like they were sure to anger the spirits hiding in the shadows.

I only lasted a few songs, mainly because I didn’t want to miss fellow Calgarians the Dudes.
