THE IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES in the Pike Room

ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

From corner to corner of their dew spritzered discography, now five full-lengths deep, THE IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES of Indiana have electrically projected what stands as a direct and feverish summoning on the late 60s sugar-sandoz-lick of the pop-folk format. Formed in 1998 the Shapes -- Barth (guitar, vocalist), Deer (organ, bass) Jason Groth (guitar) and Mark Rice (drums) -- have kept a profoundly articulate sense of classic song/dream structure whether they are billowing in drenched multi-tacked gauze like Indianapolis forefathers Zerfas or snarled in amp-buzz annihilation of power-quartet stage performances. On the flip, Barth can pixie dance from guitar play/vocal slay in a quaint yet sexually sly role of piper against Deer's counterpoint-heavy arrangements of tape-spliced fuckery. Like meat-pulp quicksand, they pull you deep in. With DRUNKEN BARN DANCE and BIG BLACK CLOUD. Doors at 8pm. $8 all ages.
