The Lilypad in Inman Square rocked, sizzled, bleeped, and blew many away last Friday night, beginning with the alternative noise-punk of Worcester’s Granny Frost. Next, JP’s Whip Appeal brought some Captain Beefheart–inspired punk shite to the table and had everyone dancing. Then, Death Shepherd (you know ’em, from here) pulled out all the electronic gadgets they could find in the attic and warped the transistors into a spell-binding frenzy of electro-synth wizardry and jaws dropped. How do those little knobs and levers do all that?!? I’m a writer here, not a musician. The night closed out with Littlespoon’s Cameron Potter—dressed appropriately enough in what looked like a pajama top—who sampled audience members’ voices and blended them into a dreamy, trancey dance party for his set. The whole bill was a satisfying mélange of cutting-edge sound that left everyone buzzing.
