“You’re all going to diiiiiie.” When Ceremony singer Ross Farrar reminded his audience of that fact at a free Brooklyn Night Bazaar show on Friday night, the room erupted, answering his gleeful assertion with stage dives and menacing dance moves. How no one got their teeth knocked out is anyone’s guess. From the power-violence lead-in of Iron Lung right on through the ecstatic, expressionistic shoegaze of Nothing, every set was a positive release of nervous and/or negative energy — PLUR for the punk set — a way to realign one’s chakras alongside gang choruses, feedback-swaddled chords, and furious downward punches.
