Black Moth Super Rainbow - The Echoplex - 5/12/12
|Black Moth Super Rainbow|
There are plenty of bands that could stand to learn from Black Moth Super Rainbow when it comes to performing. A dedicated fan shelling out $20 for a concert ticket always wants something more than what they hear on the album. Through adding new effects and replacing synthetic samples with actual musicians, it's something Black Moth Super Rainbow pulled off. Visually and musically, their performance lulls you in to an alternate universe where walls breathe, colors talk and lo-fi psychedelic pop is the favored genre of the masses.
Personal Bias: I tend to enjoy the youthful enthusiasm of an 18 and over crowd in Echo Park, where it's possible to be cited for not being jaded.
The Crowd: Facepaint, tie dye, dilated pupils and more facepaint.
Random Notebook Dump: If Prince ever ran across BMSR on the radio, he'd likely nod his head and tip whatever weird feathered hat he happened to be wearing at the moment.
