Melted Bodies Melted Faces For Bands In A Barbershop Ever See A Mosh Pit In A Barbershop? Check It Out
LOS ANGELES, CA- When I heard that Melted Bodies would be in the line-up at Bands In A Barbershop, I was pretty stoked. I caught the band at Shitshow Dave’s Shitshow Party and they blew me away. Wild and frenetic would be an understatement as to how their sonics make me feel. As soon as they started riffing and Andy (their lead vocalist) started spitting lyrics with a Serg Tankian-like deftness, the blood in my veins starts to pump a little faster. That natural high is the kind of stuff I live for, especially since I hardly ever drink or partake in other stuff when I’m out at a show (I like to remember things in my old age, lol).
The crowd up at the front of the stage was feeling the exact same way I was. As soon as the music started, a mini-mosh pit swirled about. Think about that. A mosh pit in a barbershop? That’s pretty freaking awesome.
On their official website, they have what I believe is their mission statement- of sorts- which states, “Motion creates emotion, and emotion creates content that challenges our core cultural influencers in our increasingly connected world.” Well, I say throw a few of those cultural influencers into the melee to get sweaty with a few friendly forearms in the back … I’m sure a few of them will see the light.
Personally, I thought that their set was much too short for my liking. I think that they may have shaved a few minutes from their set time to help Brian out cause set-times were running over, but hey … that’s even more reason for me to get pumped for the next show of theirs that I hit up.
