Union Transfer, Dec. 7 - Black Moth Super Rainbow (Preview)
Supreme avant-garde electronica brain grinders Black Moth Super Rainbow are on a relative mission. The band's most recent output, Cobra Juicy, a hypnotic blender of sultry synths, spacey vocals, and curiously inventive hooks, becomes a much more ambitious project when you look at what the band is doing for it.
The band launched their Cobra Juicy efforts on Kickstarter in order to self-release the project, asking donors in total for $45,000. Surpassing $125,000, the project went off well, and spurned a rich array of extra goodies, all available on the group's site.
BMSR brainchild Tobacco created personalized sketches, masks, stickers, posters, and even Polaroids and a super-special offer of, yes, having Tobacco throw his own version of a roller derby disco. That last offer comes merely for $10,000.
Aside from goodies, the band's live performance is consciously weird, swirling with ever-present imagery to go along with the multitude of masked eccentricities the band brings along.
You can catch the Pittsburgh band tomorrow alongside Savannah, Georgia group Casket Girls and Philly upstarters Creepoid at Philadelphia's Union Transfer. Doors will open at 8 p.m., with tickets still available here.
