Thumpasaurus is a gang of five deftly skilled musical agents on a perpetual quest to stabilize their eclectro-frenetic moods of post apocalyptic new wave. Thumpasaurus offer up their own unique stew wherein, hidden in plain sight and sound, you’ll find traces of Zappa, Beefheart, James Chance, Funkadelic/Parliament, Devo, Morphine, Talking Heads and Prince, as well as some rocking heavy metal, free jazz, musical theatre and even some light opera references thrown in for good measure. The band released The Book Of Thump last summer, and recently shared a video for “Where Does The Love Go”… an opera in five parts.
Converging Benjamin Button maturity with Steven Hawking-like musical astro-theories, their oath to indoctrinate the world to the ideologies of the Book of Thump holds no bounds. A band bred out of the present day’s insatiable appetite to consume, they extract scraps from hard to reach corners of the dark web into uplifting nuggets of empowerment and party.
There live show at The Teragram was one for the ages including aliens, karate chops and cameos from the like of Jennifer Lawerence, Bradley Cooper and John Travolta. Don’t miss these beings as they attack SXSW with there insane party antics.
