Nuclear Power Pants

Frequent Dan Deacon tourmates and friends Nuclear Power Pants are bringing their outlandish live show to NYC twice in the next week. They'll play Thursday (8/4) at Shea Stadium with The So So Glos, Pygmy Shrews, and RoomRunner. The show is a benefit for Silent Barn, who are currently raising money to rebuild the damaged venue. Nuclear Power Pants will also play Monday (8/8) at Death By Audio with Religious Girls, The Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, and Blastoids.

If you've seen Nuclear Power Pants, then you know pretty much know what they're all about. If you haven't, you can expect zany dinosaur/robot/alien costumes, off-kilter keytar lines, spastic drumming, and one or two male vocalists frantically shouting as three or four female vocalists pull off synchronized dance moves and piercing harmonies. To get a taste of Nuclear Power Pants' sound, check out their album Wicked Eats the Warrior which is streaming at their myspace. The NYC shows are their only two shows we know of at the moment.

Some videos and more info on the Shea Stadium show below...

working in a cubicle makes me depressed. talking about radiohead helps. the last album was great, but the band has fallen since The Bends.

Should channel this stuff more toward children's puppetry rather than rock music.

5:06: Portland. Easily. Baltimore may be a run down crime-ridden city, but you know not to fuck with it too much. Portland however is full of snooty people who like to show their inner dipshit to any NYers they see, probably due to the misery of living in Portland (the only exception to this being of course Paga Hamilton).

can't wait for these smiley preschoolers to finally trip and realize how potentially terrifying LSD can be....those colors ain't your friend when the neon pink fireballs falling from the sky are warring with the lime green sea snakes at your feet while your head is in a sonic blender. There's a reason why 'Easter Everywhere' sounds like a beautiful lonesome nightmare.
