The Octopus Project w/ Featherface & The Feeble Contenders
March 29, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm
THE OCTOPUS PROJECT
The Octopus Project has been releasing joyous party music since 2002, all the while touring the world both on their own and as handpicked support for artists as diverse as Aesop Rock, DEVO, and Explosions in the Sky. They’ve earned a reputation as a band that creates exceptional experiences through elaborate multimedia experiments, lavish album packaging, and the intensity of their extremely fun, extremely loud live shows. The band plans to hit the road again in August in support of Fever Forms.
Featherface is a band from Houston, Texas that has quickly gained a reputation for its energetic live performances and over-the-top, divergent approach to pop music.
Following up their debut LP ‘Actual Magic’ with relentless touring and appearances at several prominent music festivals, including Free Press Summer Fest and Index Fest, Featherface is continuing to evolve with the release of two new singles on 7” vinyl this October.
“Featherface does the near-impossible-in my book, at least-by taking loose-limbed, organic, all-over-the-map psych-rock and marrying it to full-on, wide-grinning, right-in-your-ear arena-pop. And, against all odds, making it work amazingly, awesomely well in the process.”
– Space City Rock
“[It Comes Electric]…bursts with youthful energy, a lush and varied sound, smart arrangements, and some damn catchy songs”
-Free Press Houston
“Out of nowhere these guys came out with an album that is honestly undeniably one of the best albums of the year.”
– Indie Houston
“Guitars occasionally peal out toward faraway corners, or organ notes will shudder against thin metal walls, adding a textural richness to Featherface’s adventurous sound.”
– We All Make Music
‘It Comes Electric’ named “5/5” in IMR Magazine’s best rated albums of 2011.
THE FEEBLE CONTENDERS
The Feeble Contenders are a loud rock n roll band from Texas.
