MEATBODIES WITH JEFF BEAM AND BAD ISLAND
doors at 7:30PM
Meatbodies return ascending towards ground level bringing us ALICE, a “heavy-pop” concept, ecstatic and psychedelic, metal on molly… Chad Ubovich (of Ty Segall’s Fuzz, Mikal Cronin, & Wand), Patrick Nolan, and Kevin Boog step out in new form, souring through diverse stories, tones, and characters. Dancing between quiet and loud, funk and doom, pop and noise. Their messages preached celestial and deafening, a sacred scripture for today’s world. A warbling rhodes piano, a liquifying electric guitar, a ghostly synthesizer skating across the sands of a 12-string acoustic. Meatbodies dig deep into the rich soils of earth to reveal the chaotic sensual vibrations underneath the fields we walk upon. Connecting our limbs, our mouths, our consciousness to the microcosms of the grime, lit by black light. Captured wriggling and alive in San Francisco by Ubovich and producer Eric Bauer (Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Comets on Fire) at The Mansion, ALICE is a step in the right direction, a new direction, a new way of thinking. Watching the futures, watching the world burn…
Meatbodies will be joined by Portland weaver of kaleidoscopic soundscapes and intricate pop melodies, Jeff Beam. Opening the evening is Bad Island, Bangor’s throw-back garage rock&roll five-piece, steeped in heavy psychedelica and wild abandon.
