Short Description: 
Two Guitar Maniacs: Yellow Crystal Star and +CNCTD

On the show for April 27th, we shall have two electric guitar freak outs on the air. Granted, they are very different sort of freak outs and very different back grounds.

Yellow Crystal Star, lately, has been quite an active Portland show setter upper in venues such as Pocket Sandwich and Sorority House. He plays dynamic (that is between noisy and low in volume to noisy and extremely loud) performance oriented, sort of purging music through a series of floor effect pedals attached to his guitar. In many ways, he is aggressively peaceful, because you don't feel threatened by his outbursts, however, if you are sensitive, you may be frightened.
