Guayaba and Terror/Cactus will share the Space Craft stage at Rolling Bay Hall at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 24.
Rapper/vocalist Guayaba is, in her own words, “a round, tender tropical fruit considered an invasive species in the Pacific Northwest. It is rich in vitamin C and is a nutritious addition to your sonic and visual palate. Please enjoy the refreshing taste!”
Personal interests include: puppets, bugs.
Influences range from Yma Sumac, Celia Cruz, Wink, Donna Summer, Poly Styrene, power metal and Edith Piaf to metal scraping together, the cycle of fruit growing and decaying, and being eaten by insects.
From the KEXP blog: “As an artist, she’s fronted metal acts, made experimental pop ballads, raps, etc. But this idea extends beyond how she executes her vision. Digging through her lyrics in her latest album, ‘Black Trash/White House,’ she embraces her race, gender, sexuality and every facet of herself that makes her who she is with an unshakable, bilingual flow.”
Terror/Cactus is a Seattle-based group with members from Argentina, Colombia, and the United States.
The masked trio combines cumbia and other traditional Latin American rhythms with psychedelic guitars, hypnotic beats, and lush soundscapes. With live shows illuminated by striking visual projections, Terror/Cactus creates a space where the audience can become fully immersed in the experience.
Tickets, $12 in advance ($15 at the door) are available at www.spacecraftpresents.org.
Rolling Bay Hall is located at 10598 Northeast Valley Road.
