Bardo Pond

Weekend Warrior, November 15 - 17

If the collective music of Wooden Shjips, Bardo Pond and Creepoid are any indication, tonight’s show at Underground Arts stands to make the contents of Hunter S. Thompson’s head look like an episode of Happy Days, in what promises to be a thoroughly psychedelic, post-modern experience. First, opener Creepoid lives up to their name with a relatively somber take on the genre, mixing laidback rhythms and distant, echoing lyrics. Bardo Pond is a relative change of pace, in that the music is comparable to listening to a classic rock album through a mushroom cloud. The band pushes the boundaries of how furious a guitar line can be whilst still being considered ambient. Headliner Wooden Shjips, the band that built their name on sounding like a trippier Velvet Underground, have spent the last six years perfecting the balance between head and groove, overwhelming your hips as much as your senses. It’s going to be a good one, folks! Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Daniel Ludwig

They’ll be supported by legendary Philly drone psych rockers Bardo Pond and hypnotic guitarist Chris Forsyth.

Bardo Pond Joined by Major Stars at PhilaMOCA June 27

It’s always a treat when the legendary Bardo Pond takes the stage, especially since it doesn’t happen as often as we’d like anymore. The Philly psych rock veterans have been melting faces and scrambling brains for 20+ years now, and tonight they’ll be hosting the loud expansive jams of Boston’s Major Stars. It will definitely be a good evening to “turn on.” Also ready to make some noise is fledgling local outfit Static Mountain. Spirits will be awoken at the Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art! PhilaMOCA, 531 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $7 - $10 Donation, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
