The first time WHE encountered the music of Magik Markers was back in the Tonic days in the Lower East Side. From the very first note, the MM threw down an absolute total assault on the audience that permeated through all our nodes and left us cowering all the way in the back of the club, full of wonder and fear. To this day, no show has really hit as hard in terms of generating a genuine, visceral response to sound. So, one snowy, muddy evening in early March, we drove up to Bard College and attempted to capture some of the ‘bonFIRE' that is Magik Markers. Needless to say, we failed miserably but the fright is now light and ain’t that something special?
