LIMB live is a religious experience

Last Friday I had the fortune of seeing LIMB play at El Rincón Social in the warehouse district to celebrate the release of their latest LP The Shape of Punk for Some and it only gave me more respect and admiration for their work. The band’s set was surrounded by a plethora of surreal imagery that made it, for me, an almost mystical encounter. Featherface, an original experimental Houston rock band, opened with a relaxing ambient rock set that was only enhanced by the echoes of the cavernous El Rincón warehouse. Other performances of the night included trippy electronic artist Cosmic Sound, the fierce Somosuno, rapper BLACKIE, and finally, the immortal LIMB. Cosmic Sound played his set alongside a series of incredibly psychedelic, masterfully edited, video clips including appearances by various muppets. However, LIMB managed to up the psych ante by playing in pitch dark, with a flashing pyramid, naked band members, and painted dancers. At one point someone even did a handstand on the pyramid. It’s hard to fully convey the mood with these words but hopefully some of the pictures will make up for that.

    Giant Princess also played and the person on the pyramid was Josh Cordova, the drummer/madman for LIMB.

    Let explain though, I love Giant Princess, I just forgot them when I was writing the article. I saw their set and loved it I just could not for the life of me remember who it was since that was the first time I’ve heard them live. Thank you for the correction and I apologize to Giant Princess.

    understandably, no offense meant.
