Concert Preview: BoomBox Live in New York City
Big weekend of music ahead for New York City, get Saturday started right with an early show from BoomBox at Webster Hall. Show starts at 7:30 featuring support from Romona Wouters.
This Alabama-bred twosome is known for their electronic-leaning brand of psychedelic funk music that takes your mind on a trip and keeps your feet moving. Decked out in his pimped out top hat and feather boa, singing sweet melodies into a pimped out feather covered microphone, frontman Zion Godchaux’s macks on his guitar and bass and teases the drums once in a while, as long time friend and band mate Russ Randolph handles live production and plays a few instruments himself.
Prepare for a show the likes of which nobody has seen before. F’real. BoomBox never plans their sets and navigates the show as it happens. Randolph says, “We just want to go out with no game plan. That way it’s fresh for us, and we can follow the energy of the crowd. We’re down to get down, and we hope that people are down with us.”
Sounds good to me. Check out this video of BoomBox playing “Me and My Baby” from earlier this year to hold you over until tomorrow.
