FEATURED SHOW OF THE WEEK: Ouroboros Boys w/ Charlie Megira & The Bet She’an Valley Hillbillies. MONDAY 8/3 at THE MOTHLIGHT.
The Ouroboros Boys have created their own unique and ever so pleasing brand of surf rock, wherein they incorporate a little bit of exotica, a lot of psychedelia, and a dash of western. Charlie Megira & the Bet She'an Valley Hillbillies conjure a strangely beautiful new hybrid of old music styles like 1950s pop, surf, and lounge, mixed with twangy, modern garage punk. The result is a sonically pleasing mess of perfection.
This show is sure to be a good time. And, better yet, it's FREE!
