WWSP's "The Alternate Boot!"

Another Fine Mess...

If I were a better writer I might be able to describe the supreme weirdness of the Telepaths show last night at the Ultra Lounge.  We have excelled at playing in weird places: we were birthed on the high streets of the Edinburgh Fringe Fest; and we've performed in funky art galleries, at the Abbie Fest Bitch for Rich show at 5:30 a.m. at the Green Party's 2010 soiree, at an Asian Techno bar; but this latest show pretty much set an impossibly high bar for strange, weird, funny and odd.


We ended up the 3rd act on a multi-act bill.  A funky little hole in the wall space.  Good sound, cool lighting, friendly wait-staff.  All the elements in place for a Telepathic rock and roll extravaganza.  And for sure it was extravagant.


Hard to explain what actually transpired from sets by the bands before and after us, the Pentatonic Snails and Shallow Grave (Satanic Symphony). Suffice to say, you should have been there.  They say pictures are worth a thousand words, so maybe this helps, but really the pictures don't tell the whole story, not by a long shot.

Here's Shallow Grave (a trio from a trailer court in Iowa, truly Children of the Corn)...
And here are the Telepaths... we were kind like on the white-bread, Andy Williams side of the weirdness spectrum last night!
