TOP 30 bands who played a B.O.W. Show in 2011 list


Bodies of Water Shows(or B.O.W. Shows) has been booking shows for the most far out, entertaining, cutting edge, and wild acts passing through and found within Boston and the New England area since the early 00s(all ages shows as often as possible). Beyond that B.O.W.’s label arm(Bodies of Water arts and crafts) has released nearly 20 records in that same timespan(including the recent BOSTON HASSLE button compilation). B.O.W. loves Boston and New England and it’s interesting music makers and is always striving to make the Boston area a better place for artists to work in, for audience members to experience in, and for touring artists to visit.

Here’s the first ten of our TOP 30 bands who played a Bodies of Water show in 2011(in no particular order):

Quite possibly the most amazing set I saw all year. Outer space drone/prog/sample/beyond pop coming from just 2 guys from Barcelona. Kind of like a LOAD Records band with really whacked out pop sensibilities. Played @ BATV.

Arrington De Dionyso(Malakait dan Singa)
Old Time Relijun on bad Indonesian drugs. Some of the nastiest weirdo dance music to hear, a ferocious live show, and when Dionyso came through Boston he had an awesome backing band who on their own are an amazing band, Olympia, WA’s Christmas. Played @ BATV.

Royal Baths
Droning VU vortex rock that just destroyed @ Homegrown III. These NYC via SF guys write some very subtle hooks, and some really great guitar lines. Played @ Villa Victoria.
Royal Baths – Darling Divine by mexicanrobots

Sediment Club
NYC downer post-punk full of jagged eruptions and nasty rhythms just like it should be. Gnarly spare music being made by some right on young punks. Played @ Villa Victoria.

Amen Dunes
Haunting, strange psychedelia that really creeps into your brain and grabs a hold of your heart. As stirring live as on record. Played @ Lorem Ipsum Books.
Amen Dunes – Ethio song by KRAAK_records

Chapter 24
British pop post-punk made with verve and energy like I have experienced rarely in recent memory. A crushing set @ Homegrown III. Played @ the Crane Room.
Chapter 24 – Spindle / 4454 by chapter24band

Chicago krautrock-psych-drone beasts that just bring the party hard when they come around. Total mesmerizing and fun as hell. Played @ What We Talk About When We Talk About Us.
CAVE – MUJ by Fuse Group Australia

An ever shifting amalgamation of hardcore blasts, twee pop weirdness, and electronic experimentation. Firmly one of Boston’s great bands. They never fail to floor. Played numerous B.O.W. shows in 2011.

Hunnie Bunnies
One of the 2 awesome offshoots from Doomstar, these guys prod the audience not only with their sounds but also with their performance. A noise and beat collision with reverberations being felt all along the eastern seaboard. Played numerous B.O.W. shows in 2011.

Twisted electronic dance music and droning bleating buzzes from NYC underground musical lynchpin Greg Fox. Serious party music for people who like getting weird(that’s you right?). He consumed the audience with his sounds. Played @ Twin Towers.

the rest of our TOP 30 bands who played a B.O.W. show in 2011 will be revealed through 2 more posts coming in the next few days!!
