Touched In The Head
UMA Gallery presents Touched In The Head
DALRYMPLE AND THE WILD DAIMONS
These musical theater troubadours will be performing pieces from their forthcoming debut record, WE ARE GODS along with marionette misfit, Rumpelstilzchen who will be rapping archaic philosophies and riddle-some follies, song-stories which gather together the lost threads of ancient Greek Daimonic lore, Berenstein Bear conspiracy theories, UFO abduction phenomenon and a swinging 60’s London aura all wrapped inside a Mr. Rogers/Syd Barrett psychedelic neighborhood theme song.
After 9 recorded studio albums, 2 musical theater productions and one storytelling saga produced over the course of 2 decades, Dalrymple has put together his latest ensemble, The Wild Daimons with a singular goal~ to save as many Daimons as they can from being ignored, repressed and annihilated, using the divine electricity that courses through the cosmic fields of music, art, theatre, magick and the active imagination.
"Combative, sometimes downright monumental progressive rock pieces."
"Superior to any Zeppelin Evermoring that I have ever heard."
Another act never to be missed will be gracing the UMA with their singular art-pop drenched orchestrations~ the fabulous, FOXTAILS BRIGADE.
"Foxtails Brigade's story-based songs and melody-driven style bring commanding stage presence reminiscent of Kate Bush, Edith Piaf, and Nico. Their haunting vocal sound and violin harmonies, fairy-tale lyrics, and classical technique deem them artists to watch with great things to come." -CBF (LA Weekly). from San Francisco.
Our beloved opening act is none other than resident Wild Child and provocateur of the delirious dimensions of whimsical mayhem, LALI WILDE. With idiosyncratic supplications to the mighty muse of prophetic vagabond Gods in disguise, you won't want to miss this act.
SHOW STARTS AT 7:30 SHARP
