She has a neutral expression and wears a metal necklace that appears to connect to a metal bra top. Behind her is a red background with an organic, rounded chair or decorative design.

On Sunday, March 26th, head to The Space, the new venue founded by the Weird Meat Boyz, to check out three incredible acts that will span rock/punk/post-punk/noise/singer-songwriter genres. Cover is $10, and the show is at 7:30 p.m., so you won’t go bankrupt or need 15 cups of coffee at 5 p.m. 

Terminus Victor and Sweetmelk are C-U favorites; Djunah is a Chicago-based badass duo who just released a new album. Here are the bios from the Facebook event page:

Terminus Victor music is a formidable blend of rock, alternative rock, and post-punk with a dash of shoegaze. Nicknamed TVic by the twin cities of Champaign-Urbana, IL, this band thrives on inspiration “the music is in here [point to heart] and it has got to come out!”. Joy Division, My Bloody Valentine, Slint, HUM and more are influential ingredients in their Wall of Sound recipe.

Chicago-based Djunah spotlights the talents of Donna Diane, who pulls triple duty, simultaneously playing guitar, singing, and pulverizing a Moog bass organ with her foot. Drawing a broad range of comparisons from Diamanda Galás to Melvins, Djunah (pronounced “JUNE-uh”) pairs her powerful, unrestrained vocals and abrasive guitar with punishing drums courtesy of Jared Karns (Their/They’re/There, Hidden Hospitals). Djunah is touring to support their newest album, “Femina Furens,” which fuses influences from formal poetry (Gerard Manley Hopkins, Sylvia Plath, John Donne) and heavy music (PJ Harvey, Hum, Neurosis) to tell the story of Diane’s diagnosis and continuing recovery from the trauma disorder C-PTSD.

Sweetmelk is led by singer songwriter Kenna Mae from Urbana-Champaign, IL. They are a passionate energetic and authentic musician with a clear message to be courageously compassionate, be anti-racist, be kind to yourself and others as you learn to do so. Stay Safe. I Love You!

Tickets will be sold at the door.
