Black Moth Super Rainbow Performs Tonight at The Mohawk
From a flipside aural dimension emerges Black Moth Super Rainbow. The Pittsburgh-based electronic psychedelia band stands out with a rather distinctive sound to their craft, due in part to their imaginative and uninhibited experimentation with analog instruments, such as the vocoder and Novatron.
Before this, the band was performing as two seperate groups, Tobacco and Power Pill Fist, under the collective name Allegheny White Fish, from 1996 to 2000, then became known as satanstompingcaterpillars (ssc) up until 2002. New members came on board to form Black Moth Super Rainbow in 2003. BMSR teamed up with Austin indie band The Octopus Project in 2007 to record a collaborative electronic-pop-experimental effort known as The House of Apples and Eyeballs.
In support of their 2009 release, Eating Us, BMSR is touring this summer and will have a show tonight at The Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the outside stage. The show’s bill includes performances by Brooklyn psychedelia trio School of 7 Bells, and Austin’s Balmorhea. All delightfully trippy dippy and irresistibly danceable. Highly recommended.
