Matmos at Floristree Space


Last night, went to Floristree to see recent Baltimore transplants, Matmos play a benefit concert for the Transmodern Age art festival.
Despite a noisy crowd during their set, I enjoyed my first time seeing them play their music. It was definitely part performance as well. They started the set with a video projector during the song "Rainbow Flag".
During their song, "Rose and Teeth for Ludwig Wittgenstein", they had two guys drum using bunches of roses, and in the following song, "Germs Burn for Darby Crash", they shaved a guy's hair into a mohawk.

Nice pics and review! Wish I could be your hero and divert your attention to my audio recording of the show, but the band wasn't happy with the performance (more due to the audience, I think), so the audio won't circulate.

A couple of vids I shot from the show:

Um, I don't think Jeff has the Brotzmann show. I get the impression he focuses mostly on local acts.
I have no such recording either. Sorry.

You're right, I do mostly local acts...some touring acts on occasion though. And you're also correct that I don't have that Brotzmann show, though that is definitely something I would have been interested in.
