8pm: CHAPPO! free show
April 25, 2013
CHAPPO first became cause célèbre for lovers of fuzzy space rock when a song from their self released Plastique Universe EP, "Come Home" inexplicably landed in an Apple iPod commercial, and was called "an excellently overstuffed garage-psych sound" by Pitchfork. They followed up by
independently releasing another concept EP, Plastique Universe II: Pisces Princess, continuing their rambunctious place in the Brooklyn DIY scene. 2012 saw new milestones, including the release of their debut album Moonwater on Majordomo Records, touring with indie luminaries Of Montreal, and playing major festivals including Bonnaroo and Osheaga. Moonwater received further praise from SPIN, who noted "nods to classic indie (Pixies, a dash of Grandaddy); with just enough psych-swirls to stay groovy" and maintained a spot on Sirius XM - Alt Nation's top 18 for over 20 weeks. CHAPPO is hitting the road again for a coast to coast North American tour this spring.
