Black Moth Super Rainbow @ The KhyberAugust 21, 2007
So I got to finally see for myself that those noisemakers who go by the name of Black Moth Super Rainbow aren’t actually robots, or a group ghosts who get together in the Western PA woods every new moon to put together blissed out sounds. I was at least expecting to see a freakshow, or at least some hazy scruffy-looking hippies. What I saw was quite the opposite: Two regular guys, and two… ladies. One of which looked like a 20 years-old coed on Penn’s rowing team. And SHE was the one making most of that amazing keyboard sounds that dominate all of BMSR’s tunes.
I got to the Khyber early, thinking the show would sell out, so I had to sit through THREE opening acts, all of which were fine, but they all lacked a bit of BMSR’s… soul? That’s not the proper word… Just take a listen to some of their shit and you’ll get my drift.
