Few bands have more distinct iconography than that of Black Moth Super Rainbow. It comes with the territory of their psychedelic style of music, which invokes thoughts of settings ranging from peaceful countrysides to space journeys to nuclear wastelands. They’ve been gaining some traction lately, with the successful release of their fifth album via Kickstarter, Cobra Juicy. It’s their most accessible album yet, and their increasing legion of fans shows it.
Tobacco has a whole cult of fucked up friends, so a Black Moth show is always guaranteed to have some really sick supporting acts. Tonight there were two groovy acts by the names of The Stargazer Lillies and The Casket Girls. Lillies were first and could be more aptly nicknamed as shoegazers over stargazers, with that sort of droning guitar that makes you feel like you’re falling down a bottomless pit. Little material exists for them outside of some singles off their basecamp currently, but perhaps we’ll see an LP next year.
