Black Moth at the Mohawk

On the heels of their latest album release, Eating Us, Black Moth Super Rainbow put their tripped-out, vocoder-enhanced bubblegum psychedelia on display at the Mohawk earlier this week. Backed by a visual display that flashed images of melting bodies, roadkill, puppets, and other homemade horror films (Decider), the Pittsburgh experimental band's unconventional, noisy pop songs made a perfect match for the trippy scenes being played out behind them.

I got to the Mohawk in time to catch the Brooklyn three-piece School of Seven Bells (Benjamin Curtis from the Secret Machines and the twin Deheza sisters from On! Air! Library!) whose dreamy, tribal-synth drones sounded great in a live setting. Click that Decider link for a full review. These photos are provided by Ed Lehmann. You can go here to see more.
