Join us May 26th for the coming out dance party of the year as Gay Beast ride the Second Wave straight onto the streets! Formed in 2005 and renowned as Minnesota's premier agit-prog queer band, Gay Beast cuts a careening groove between the prickly corners of tunefulness and musical density, danceability and controlled chaos. On Second Wave, their sophomore effort and first release on Skin Graft Records, the trio lets fly with utopic visions of second-wave feminism, exposing a mood-swinging musical reach heretofore unheard.
Join us May 26th as the nuclear family explodes into a psychedelic mushroom cloud of writhing, urgent vocals set against the precise, premeditated clatter of guitar, drums and keys. Add a dash of electronic psych, and a spoonful of sax - and your goose is cooked.
o “Bands like Gay Beast used to get me excited, but none have had such a gloriously bent and creative batch of songs to match up with the innovation (of Gay Beast)." - Dusted Magazine
o “Think Health, think Lovely Little Girls, think DNA. But don't think too hard. It wouldn't be right." - Sound & Fury
o ”Gay Beast are one of the few bands i've seen around that are seriously challenging the form and content of modern rock music. Their compositions and execution are ambitious and effective. A truly unique and weird band." -Weasel Walter
