Doors: 9:00 pm / Show: 10:00 pm (event ends at 1:30 am)


Come on down and let AMPEVENE getchya dancing feet amped up!

A pure listening and visceral experience, Ampevene blends a free form frenzy, jagged riffs, and hypnotic rhythms into a tight, psychedelic, sonic landscape, designed to trip up and trip out any listener. Ampevene draws influence from renowned artists such as Omar Rodriguez Lopez, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, TOOL, Mastodon, King Crimson, John Frusciante, and more, yet somehow manages to create something completely unique for their listeners. An Ampevene live show will walk you through an experimentation of sounds ranging from soft floating grooves to heavy math based confusion, and even downright noise. Yet somehow their complexity doesn’t outshine the pure emotion and even comfort that the songs exude at the same time.

"Ampevene delivers a highly energetic, atmospheric environment, tearing the borders between every genre at their disposal. Ampevene continues to set the bar high for progressive rock throughout New York, keeping spectators on their heels from their improvisational clash of metal and jazz." - Karissa Doerr, NYS Music

"This is some fine, well-aged stank cheese. In the good way, the stank cheese people pay good money for. The nice and sharp kind that can be eaten with some keebler brand club crackers. The kind that's like 'Oh dang that cheese is sharp enough to carve stone, that's some stank cheese, man' " -John Hogan, Fan
