Matmos at MEta Gallery

Matmos @ Meta Gallery

The Good:
Matmos played with SO Percussion. That was rad.
All sorts of crazy live drumming, including 4 dudes hammering on the same modified tympani at once, a saw being played, blocks of wood, 4 hi-hats at once, etc. Really really inventive stuff.

The bad:
The opening act was two fucking twats with reel to reels making horrible screeching noises.
The crowd was 94% total fucking wankers. When Matmos and SO came on, everyone sat on the floor.
The dude who owns Meta smells like he hasn't showered in weeks.
The only drinks you could buy was $4 lemonades that looked like it had weeds floating in it
There was a dude wearing lime green leapord print tights, and he blended in much more than I did, dressed like a normal person. The only grown men who get a pass on tights are wrestlers and ballet stars.

Overall I enjoyed Matmos and SO Percussion (so incredibly talented), but it was a very surreal night.
Oh, and the "art" in this "gallery" was total shit.
