Os Mutantes at Webster Hall 2010 (more by Ryan Muir)
Os Mutantes

As we mentioned briefly, Brazilian psychotropical legends Os Mutantes are among the first bands to play new outdoor Bushwick venue/beer garden The Well which opened July 14 with a show by Cam'ron ond other hip-hop acts. OS Mutantes' show at The Well happens July 28 with M.A.K.U. Soundsystem, Dom and Citay on the bill as well. Tickets for that show are still available. You can also get tickets at Other Music, who will host an acoustic in-store with Os Mutantes on July 30 at 8PM which is free but limited admission, obviously, as it's a tiny space. These are the band's only upcoming shows at the moment.

The great NYC record store has a long history with the band. Some of you may remember Other Music had their own reissue label, Omplatten, which reissued Os Mutantes' first three albums back in '99. (They were the first three things Omplatten released.) Those records have since been reissued by Polydor, but the Everything is Possible! compilation released by Luaka Bop (also in '99) is a great place to dip your toe into the weird, wonderful technicolor world of the Sao Paulo combo. It's on Spotify.

A few vintage Os Mutantes television performances are below.

The band can't even get living members to tour with them. Great albums but just average show.

Well, Arnaldo Baptista is not well...since the 70's with drug related issues (even though he played a couple os gigs with Mutantes a couple os years ago). And Rita Lee left in the 70's and have a very successful solo career. That, btw, she also just retired of playing live shows. Now she's just recording albums.

To clear up a little something, NY was NEVER onsale at today. I was refreshing all morning and it wasn't there. Whether it was ever supposed to be or not is the confusion. Merge said it would and neither they nor Arcade Fire has said anything to clear that up.
