Drink the Kool-Aid, Eat the Sundaes: GOBBLE GOBBLE at the Great Scott, 4/9/11 + goodies

this is the best i could do for photo-taking
The soreness i currently experience in my neck is the result of the massive amount of head-banging i did last night when i saw Gobble Gobble live for the first time. Although we have already done a concert review on these guys, i think they merit another one. Seeing GBL GBL is truly a cult experience; with mystical balloon figures, half naked band members in tutus and on stilts, samplers taped to shovels, tarps thrown over the audience... its pretty much madness. The show was only about 80 to 100 people, but everyone there raged their minds out. In Fjust a 30 minute set my friends and i went from somewhat comfortable to drenched in sweat, unable to speak, and generally exhausted (we got sundaes after though). With a great number of acoustic and electronic instruments, Cecil Frena and his fairy minions made a glorious cacophony of harmony, producing their anthemic glitched-out jams right before an audience. This is one show that you MUST see. I'm considering seeing them again tonight, if it weren't for all the reading i know i should be doing.
