Bare Mutants at LSD

Last week, we hosted a special event at the Land and Sea Dept. studios, one that featured a riveting live performance by Bare Mutants.

The event was hosted by Filter and Ploom, with support from Laugnitas, Letherbee and Parson’s Chicken & Fish, and included an acoustic, intimate live performance by the band, performing as a duo. The show was filmed and recorded, content that should be trickling out at some point soon.

Body/Head

LSD 0018

Many, many thanks to all of you that came out to the Museum of Contemporary Art last week, for our sold out Body/Head show. Openers GATE and Tom Carter improvised together as a collaborative duo for the first time, a captivating set that had listeners pinned to their seats. Body/Head came with an audio/visual performance that stunned, playing material from their new Matador double album Coming Apart. As promised, it was truly a great night for all.
