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.
