London-via-Japan quartet Bo Ningen were here over the weekend, playing Knitting Factory on Friday (4/25) and a free Rough Trade in-store Sunday afternoon (4/27). I caught the Rough Trade show and if I had to describe them in five words it would be “what the hell was that?” In a good way. Or, what if a Chinese wuxia film was a Japanese doom/shoegaze/prog/psych/punk band? Insane playing, jumps from the drumkit, flying hair that at times seemed to be a special effect — it was definitely a good alternative to coffee on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Bo Ningen have since added another NYC show to their tour before they head to this weekend’s Austin Psych Fest. They’ll play Studio @ Webster Hall on Friday (5/2) with Yvette, which should make for an exciting double bill. Tickets for that show are on sale.

Bo Ningen’s new album, III, is out May 20 (they were selling it at the merch table yesterday). Remaining tour dates are listed, along with video from Knitting Factory, below…
