After a short hiatus Oobleck’s hitting it hard this February with three big shows. We’ve spent the last few months getting to know our new bass man, Sam Parker. After some great years with Nick he’s moved on to a new project., Rival Galaxies. They’ve got some wild sounds and put on a straight up dance party.
But when one door closes another one opens. Sam’s been bringing the heat and we’re ready to take it on the road. After a stint in New Paltz with Balls Deep we’re headed back to Burlington to play at Nectars. We’ll be finishing out the month with a Mardi Gras celebration at the Black Rocks Festival in Connecticut.
Here’s a taste of what’s to come. I’ll funk you so hard you’ll make the Cosby face!
Saturday February 15th
New Paltz, NY
w/Balls Deep, New Paltz original heavy funk
Oobleck brings the funk to New Paltz for the first time joining forces with another local funk band, Balls Deep. If you have friends or family in the area let them now, ought to be a raucous good time.
Thursday February 20th
21+ Free, 18+ $5
While we are certainly Burlington regulars this will be our first time at Nectar’s. Joining us will be argonaut&wasp, tripped out electronic funk from UVM. Get your gravy fries and your oobleck too.
Saturday March 1st
Blackrock Rocks Mardi Gras
$25 for 23 bands at three venues, music all day.
Put your beads on and come party like it’s warm. Because there is no better way to spend early March than to pretend like it’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
