Pharmakon @ Mississippi Studios

Okay, so this one is pharm- and not “farm”, but you get it. Pharmakon is to industrial noise what Deafheaven is to black metal, which is to say she has garnered a lot of critical praise and some scorn from “true fans of the genre.” Take it or leave it, but if you take it, this show will be something to behold. The first time I saw Pharmakon she was chewing on a slab of metal, and I had to leave her set early and run 3 miles through Chicago at 1 in the morning to catch the last train out of the city. That night was the only time I’ve ever had Popeye’s Fried Chicken, and let me tell you, their interpretation of Ranch Dippin’ Sauce is unique and commendable.
