“Just got back from playing Webster Hall with Os Mutantes. I think I can retire now.” – DeLeon
Brazil has another reason to celebrate beyond landing a future Summer Olympics: one of that country’s most beloved rock bands, Os Mutantes (The Mutants), is back on the road after a nearly three-decade break.
Touring North America after the release of their first studio album in 30 years, the seven-member band stopped at the Somerville Theatre Sunday and showed why many in South America consider it the Kinks, the Beatles and Crosby Stills & Nash rolled into one frenzied psychedelic party machine.
While Os Mutantes turned out pop hit after pop hit in Brazil in the ’60s and ’70s, the only original member, iconoclastic guitarist Sergio Dias, has made sure he’s not leading an oldies act. [Boston Herald]
Os Mutantes‘ tour also included a stop at Webster Hall in NYC last night (10/8). DeLeon opened. More pictures from that show, below….
