The Babe Rainbow, MUNYA

This event is in the past
Tues June 4, 2019, 7:30 pm
High Dive Fremont (Seattle)
$15 - $17
Produced by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard's Stu Mackenzie and Wayne Connolly, and signed to Danger Mouse's 30th Century label, and praised by Entertainment Weekly, Australian rock group the Babe Rainbow are poised to break big. So it's odd they're playing a small room like High Dive, but that could make seeing them tonight even more special—after they're likely booked for Capitol Hill Block Party and Bumbershoot next year. Why the big expectations? Because the Babe Rainbow exude an innate natural melodic charm destined to make hundreds of thousands of people's heads vibrate pleasantly, while also possessing enough strange, welterweight psychedelic touches to keep their winsome tunes from toppling into innocuousness. They also pack a rhythmic punch that recalls Stone Roses and Hot Chip. If the Babe Rainbow aren't Kurt Vile-level popular by 2020, I'll slowly shake my head in disbelief. by Dave Segal
