Worried that the New Times Summer of Sound: Experimental/Eclectic show is no bang for your five bucks? Then let us break it down for you:
Black Carl: White kids playing super-awesome and authentic soul/funk.
Andrew Jackson Jihad: Once before a gig at a family bookstore, lead singer Sean Bonnette nearly took the stage while wearing a Sharpied T-shirt that read, Fuck you, cokehead.
Janis Joplin Crap N Vomit: Punk rock showtunes. Awesome.
Yourchestra: A doing-shrooms-sounding ensemble that plays 1920s-style jug-band music before suddenly breaking out into psychedelic hippie dances.
And then theres the headlining act, Estradasphere Trio, an all-over-the-map group named after (yes) Erik Estrada/Ponch from CHiPs. The bands song titles include The Trials and Tribulations of Parking on Your Front Lawn, Rise N Shine (Epic Doobie Nightmare #1), and Burnt Corpse.
Save us a seat, please.
