First, look what’s going on in this picture. These people(?) are riding space scooters with more confidence than I have walking down the street. I hope I’ve gotten your attention. Second, Canadian galaxy rockers TWRP (Tupper Ware Remix Party) dropped the Believe in Your Dreams EP back in September and are currently touring around Canada and select places in the US, including the neighboring city of Baltimore, to promote the new release.
Their music is delightfully indulgent and over the top – think classic video game tracks meets synth rock. A Daft Punk comparison is a little unavoidable, maybe even too obvious to really be worth mentioning, and I certainly don’t have a problem with more sounds like this floating around the universe. Personal favorite track is “Pale Blue Dot” with “Baby, N.Y.C.” as a close second. “Baby, N.Y.C.” is a collab with a band called Ninja Sex Party (everything is a party with these guys it seems) and it’s got me wondering, what is a shanghai lady? Is it me? Am I a shanghai lady? Is Rita Hayworth? Lots of questions here. Either way, all of the EP is…wait for it…OUT OF THIS WORLD fun (get it? Because SPACE). Is it silly? Absolutely.
But silly is cool, guys. The concert is at The Ottoman in Baltimore on 11/7, with tickets $10 in advance. This can’t be anythingother than an amazingly high energy show, so if you can make the drive to B-more I’d highly recommend doing so. And if this write up hasn’t convinced you, just know that I’m like 98% sure they wear those outfits on stage. Fingers crossed for space scooters.
