FRIDAY, OCT. 5:
Twenty-five years from now, you’ll be one of three people: an adult who doesn’t listen to music, the creepy old dude who goes to shows alone, or an institution. By “institution” I mean that despite (or because of?) your age, you’ll still be a welcome presence at whatever all-ages venues exist then. You’ll have volumes of fucked-up tour stories, and you’ll have gone to shows that future kids would kill to have seen. Too bad music is so awful that the only show that’ll have that effect is this one: Longmont Potion Castle at Safari Sam’s. He’ll probably play nothing but death metal, but it’s imperative you see this show if you value being respected in any way, shape or form in the future. Longmont Potion Castle records are a series of surrealist prank phone calls recorded mostly on answering machines and mixed with the occasional metal interlude and sound collage. The caller (callers?) has never revealed his name and probably never will. Topics discussed include peacock bowel, Killian’s Irish Red, UPS, Orange Julius, wasp meat, and putting your voice through a delay pedal. If you can’t get into Neil Hamburger’s Great Phone Calls, don’t waste your time with LPC—this is miles away from Jerky Boys and Crank Yankers. I guarantee that LPC will become a legend in the future. Seeing him live is as rare as a bunch of goats, turkeys and puppies breaking into your house, hootin’ and hollerin’ all over the place. I’m just pullin’ your chain, mister, pullin’ your chain. (HK)
