UMO/Foxygen @ Bowery Ballroom, 2/28/2013
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Foxygen

There must be something about having the word Foxy in the name of your band (see Foxy Shazam) that has a requirement of the lead singer acting completely nuts on stage. The 5 piece indie rock band from Agoura Hills (shout out to my Cali peeps) played for just about an hour and their music has elements of folk, alternative and lots of psychedelia! Lead singer Sam France walked out on stage with a pimp jacket and Indiana Jones type stetson hat (which you can see a clearer picture of after the jump) and danced/freaked out all over the stage as distorted vocals came pouring out through his mic…

… It appeared that the crowd was there to see Foxygen based on the reaction to their music, but everyone stayed and loved UMO equally as much. They performed largely in the dark, though back lit by those candles that have little battery operated flames in them. – [According2G]

Uknown Mortal Orchestra and Foxygen‘s tour with Wampire hit NYC this past Thursday (2/28) with a very sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom and pictures from that show are in this post. It will be much easier to get into UMO next NYC show which is a free one at Pier 17 at South Street Seaport on June 28. It’s the first announced show of this year’s Seaport Music Festival, which we are happy to see returning after the devestation Hurricane Sandy wreaked on the area. No openers announced yet, so stay tuned.

Foxygen hightailed it from Bowery immediately after their set to play a last-minute, late-night show at Pianos.

In related news, for those heading to Austin for SXSW Interactive or Film (or showing up early for the music portion), Seaport Music Fest, Panache Booking and Hot Burrito are putting on Bruise Cruise show on Lady Bird Lake with Milk Music, Fat Tony, The Blind Shake and Outer Minds. Details are here and the flyer is below…
