Tomorrow: Reptar @ Grog Shop

I saw Reptar open for The Faint (5/22/14) and loved them!  Their new album sounds great as well…  so this headlining show has definitely been on my radar.

Continuing their exploration of indie-electro-guitar-pop-weirdness, Reptar returns with their second full-length album, Lurid Glow, out March 31st on Joyful Noise Recordings. A diverse amalgamation of sounds and styles delineate the music of Reptar, culminating from the band’s disparate array of influences. Comparisons can be made to bands like Talking Heads and MGMT, but Reptar simultaneously showcases musicianship in the heritage of Frank Zappa, Rush, Mike Patton, and Tortoise - creating a blend of party music suitable for music nerds.

The tough part is that I also want to go to the Grog Shop on Wednesday for the Diamond Rug show as well.  So then the question then becomes, how good will the openers be and will they sway me to going out on this night?   Well, I then discovered these 3 amazing videos for Icky Blossoms - who are the middle opener!  I think these just secured my attendance at this show.  (The second one is NSFW!!)

The Grog Shop site didn’t have much on the very first band, but these two are enough to bring me out.
