Animal Eyes, Mothertapes 

When: Sun., July 13, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: free
Wax Fingers were a bold testament to the freaky lengths that experimental progressive rock could be taken. Since their disbandment, two remaining members—guitarist/bassist/vocalist Pete Bosack and drummer Tommy Franzen—have been incubating an equally engaging experiment in Mothertapes. The two-piece specializes in frenetic fits of texturized chaos, bleeding and blippy guitar squalls, and melodic interludes with liquid synths. Mothertapes' debut album is currently being mastered, and features no shortage of the thrilling guitar calisthenics that made Wax Fingers such an anomaly. With the first single, "Do Make Say," as barometer, Bosack and Franzen have embraced more of their pop side, folding in danceable patchworks of controlled atmospherics, and making it sound both fun and emotionally cathartic.
