Houston’s very own B L A C K I E will be making an appearance at Day for Night 2017. Michael LaCour’s noise, hip-hop, industrial, hardcore punk project is an explosion of chaos and experimentation that not only shatters boundaries but rips up and eats it. LaCour is a veteran of the Houston scene as he’s been active since 2005 with constant performances and consistent releases, and he’s garnered a reputation for his extremely loud and visceral acts. B L A C K I E’s latest release is his album Remains which contains his usual noise hip-hop and industrial feel with jazz impressions. LaCour has called his music U.S. grime as well as thrash-rap, but that being said, it has many stylistic similarities with Sacramento-based, experimental hip-hop group Death Grips. The two acts have a similar aggression and darkness to their songs that is evidence of true creative experimentation. It is safe to say that if you are a fan of Death Grips then you will definitely get behind B L A C K I E whose reputation with the Houston scene is sure to gather a crowd of dedicated fans at his festival performance. If you are looking for a highly energetic performance, be sure to attend LaCour’s showing as it will definitely be making some major noise at the festival grounds.
