Kohoutek Opening for Dead Meadow at Underground Arts May 13

The rocket-fueled, over-driven sonic exploits of Kohoutek are set to launch from Underground Arts this evening. One braces for the long haul as this crew’s mind-warping noise-psych union shakes the foundation, bridging new connections amid the chaotic afterburn. Lock yourself in, hold on tight and enjoy the ride. Tonight, they’ll be joined on a billing that embraces the heavy, as the haunting rumble of Gondola creates a path to the grunge-shoegaze of Creepoid and the raunchy psych of Dead Meadow. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 9pm, $14, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Gondola EP Available For Streaming & Purchase

Recorded during the same sessions that resulted in their Get Bent album, Gondola recently issued a new EP The Floating East. The triad of songs captures a possessing mind-warping heaviness. The sticky fire of guitar licks slices through, unifying the pounding propulsion of bass and percussion as the vocals steer from deep in the valley. Catch the trio in the opening slot at Underground Arts Saturday as part of a lineup that also includes Creepoid, Kohoutek, and Dead Meadow.

Weekend Warrior, December 4 - 6

Trek through the cosmic debris as Kohoutek celebrate the release of their Curious Aroma LP at PhilaMOCA this Saturday night. Available via London’s MIE Music, the band launches into epic, noise-rattled, sonic voyages. Instrumental tones (which originally seem at odds) gradually marinate; the strength of intensity permeates bending space and time into submission, momentarily seizing one’s headspace in the process. Joining in on this head trip is the almighty Brother JT, who will be making his usual human sacrifice to the rock gods.  Rosali gets the night rolling, prepping the launching pad to send things out there. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Enjoy the Ride w/Kohoutek at KFN Nov. 28

Mad scientists Kohoutek will be bringing their epic jams to Kung Fu Necktie tonight. Made up of Scott Allison on homemade electronics, Scott Verrastro on drums, Chris Grier on electric guitar, Craig Garrett on bass, and John Stanton on electric guitar, the improv collective aims to push the already expansive boundaries of psych rock by blending atmospheric noise with patient guitars that morph into thunderous riffs to form crushing multi-layered, instrumental waves to drown their audiences in. With influences that guide their sonic exploration to “Claude Debussy composing on too much of Woodstock’s fabled brown acid, or Bitches Brew on some serious downers,” the local five-piece brings you on a journey where being and nothingness might occupy the same space. Don’t be afraid to freak out, man! It’s all part of the ride. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Q.D. Tran
