Dark Aether Project CD release multimedia event 3/13 in WashingtonDC area

On Saturday, March 13th, Phantasmagoria in Wheaton, MD will host a
multimedia event rarely seen outside of huge stadiums. The Dark Aether
Project will perform in support of their brand new second CD _Feed The
Silence_ accompanied by special guests German Warr Guitarist Markus Reuter
of the Europa String Choir (who also appears on the album) and space-jam
improv greats Quarkspace. This event also marks former Echolyn vocalist
Ray Weston's first performance as a full member of The Dark Aether
Project since joining just prior to the recording of the new album.

Accompanying the music will be the spectacular visual work of the
Ohio-based Solar Fire Lightshow and their multi-projection liquid light &
film systems with multi-colored strobes, black lights, smoke, beams and
other amazing visual effects which have made them one of the premier US
lightshow outfits and the choice of visiting foreign space rock
forefathers like Hawkwind and Gong.

Showtime is 9pm and admission price is $10

The Dark Aether Project is:
Adam Levin: Warr 8 String Touch Guitar/Keyboards/Loops
Yaman Aksu: Guitar/Hammond Organ
Brian Griffin: Drums/Percussion
