Beacon Decapitate Pop With: No Body

post image

Every time I’ve been able to see Beacon play live they’ve surprised me with the variations they were able to pull off from their previous EP So Anxious. The background video of Justin Bieber doing “Hiel Bieber”, the perversions they’ve elicited from Katy Perry, the natural breathing vocals of Tom Mulaney and the endless rearrangements driven on stage by Jacob Gobsett, all have made my fickle heart warm and my ever wandering mind focused on their production and performances.

With that in mind I am thrilled about their new release “No Body”, and an intro video the group released to set stage for a thematic development in their story telling.

Soars at Glasslands, Brooklyn, 8.13.10

There are few reasons to show up anywhere on time: doctor appointments, appearances before a judge, alternate side parking of your car and funerals.

The reasons to show up early are even more scarce: a hot date or a good opening band.

Last night, Friday the 13th, I had both a hot date and a chance to see Soars play live an early set at Glasslands.

Tonight: go to your psych festival!

Todd P got tired and in his place we’ve got Lady Bree. She’s been putting on shows at Don Pedros, Coco 66, Bruar Falls and now a psych festival at Glasslands. This is a mini festival that, you would think is all about your bell bottoms and that rusty tambourine, but really it’s about bands who will get you to the sweet spot.
