It’s a shame the Octopus Project isn’t a bigger band. I think a huge reason is in the need to see them live. Every member can play every instrument, and with extreme enthusiasm. All except for the theremin, which I’m told is measurably difficult to play live, and Yvonne Lambert plays it with such angelic grace. I saw the band this past Friday (October 8th), and it was really quite an event. The theremin heavy show was probably one of the best, almost vocal-less, shows I’ve seen. Glow sticks exploded from the audience!
The band played some songs from their back catalog, as well as well as songs from their forthcoming album, Hexadecagon, due to be released October 26.
I predict these guys will see an increase in fan flow like their friends, and one-time album collaborators, Black Moth Super Rainbow (Although I haven’t heard a Octopus Project song in a commercial yet!).
Songs they played that I can find/ remember:
Music Is Happiness
I saw the Bright Shinnies
Tuxedo Hat (Almost like 95% sure)
If you were there, and can remember any of the other song played, please list!
