Review: Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso UFO at Larimer Lounge, 4/8/12


ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE @ LARIMER LOUNGE | 4/8/12

It would be a tough to pinpoint a specific climax of this show, but a true high point of feeling for the band -- and probably the crowd -- came with the last number of the set when Kawabata Makoto used some kind of white, plastic object that looked like some kind of ladle that emitted albatross-like noises á la Pink Floyd's Echoes when held to the guitar pick-ups, at which point the whole band then kicked in and Kawabata went wild yet again.
