Bug Chaser Album Release
9:00 p.m. November 2 @ Off Broadway
w/ Pujol, Black Panties

Every Bug Chaser show is a psychedelic future-rock freak out. At last count, the band contains eight band members, all adding a key element to this deliciously unholy monstrosity. Bug Chaser sounds like music to accompany a free-for-all LSD-enhanced orgy — part freedom, part sex, part terror. In the past couple of years it has earned a reputation as a band that brings a serious entertainment factor into its live show, frequently presenting its music as a sixteen-armed writhing creature having a PTSD flashback under swirling lights. It’s authentically weird, and in the best way. This show marks the release of the bands new LP, recorded and mixed by the south side’s favorite engineer, Jason Hutto. Headliners and frequent visitors via Nashville, Pujol, and local sensation Black Panties round out the bill.
