With festival season heating up (despite the rain of course), it is sometimes easy to overlook some amazing shows going on locally. One such show happens to be set for this Friday, May 6th at the Vogue in Broad Ripple. The IndyMojo crew has put together yet another show that brings together a few of the jam scenes strongest groups to add a little warmth to an otherwise rainy Midwest existence.
The Werks and Zoogma will combine forces for a show that is sure to make your body move and your mind nearly explode with euphoric jam delight. Add Hollow Point, one of Indy’s rising-star DJs, and you have a high-energy line-up that is sure to please any musical taste.
With their special blend of “psychedelic dance rock,” the Werks have become a powerhouse in the regional jam scene and can be found on the schedules of several big-name festivals such as Summer Camp, Wakarusa, Rootwire and All Good as well as their own Werk Out Festival. I recently had the opportunity to catch them during Wuhurth Productions’ “Urth Daze” at Muncie’s all-ages venue, Be Here Now. As a surprise addition to the show, the “Urth” fans couldn’t get enough of their funky dance beats. Each song escalated to the point of pulsating excitement before pulling back to start again. It wasn’t hard to see why these guys have been dominating stages all over the country.
The Werks in action!
With Papadosio NYE2011
In the same category, you can find Zoogma. Although I haven’t seen them live for a few months, these guys have been making the rounds with some pretty notable players in the jam scene…and rightfully so! Having recently toured with Papadosio, Perpetual Groove and Big Gigantic, Zoogma has also taken the Midwest scene by storm with their heavy electronica beats and dynamic improvisation. They too can be found on some of the top bills this summer including Wakarusa, Rootwire, Camp Bisco 10 and Bear Creek.
As for Hollow Point, expect some bass heavy beats that hit you right in the chest. Recently joining forces with the IndyMojo/G-9 team, he has no place to go but up…and he’ll keep you dancing the entire way! Check him out on Facebook to hear a sample of what he has to offer!
