Unknown Mortal Orchestra @ RnR Hotel

"Unknown Mortal Orchestra describe themselves as Captain Beefheart, Sly Stone and RZA jamming on a creepy, never-released kid’s show. Live, they evidence shades of a cross between an American Jamie Lidell and a baby-faced Black Sabbath. Boasting the potential to warrant the incipient notoriety, they play a junkyard rock that's in short supply by groups outside of San Francisco."

Openers: Foxygen & Wampire
[TICKETS HERE]

    Well, when you see them in person the lead guy definitely draws Meatloaf to mind. I like their music, but they had the worst stage banter I've ever witnessed. A sampling from the guitarist: "Did you know the president lives here?" Wampire I agree was dull.

    i didn't go. foxygen's latest cd doesn't sound at all like meatloaf, but they do definitely draw from the 70s....but it's more of a psychedelic rock feeling. i would think they'd be a good pairing with UMO. what kind of music did wampire play?

    It was a mixed bag. Wampire was boring, Foxygen reminded me of Meatloaf, but Unknown Mortal Orchestra more than made up for their openers. I was sad that it seemed like there were more Foxygen fans there than UMO fans. :(

    If you really want to see the show, just come a little early and wait outside for a bit. There are always people selling off their extra tickets. If you see someone standing around, don't be afraid to ask.

    Also... NPR is streaming this show live tonight.
