Moonwood - Mother's Eyes

This proggy night at Smiling Buddha was presented under the auspices of façadeMontage, the promoting arm of Romar L. Johnson, also known for his visual work with the Casual Drones series. Anyone who has been to those events knows that he gives lighting and visuals a precedence above and beyond the usual, so it was no surprise to see the intricate lighting rig and intense dosage of dry ice in action here. The start of Moonwood's set saw them pivoting from their ambling hexplosions with a trio of spiky, psych-punk rockers. After that, though, they disappeared into the fog with some extended instrumental grooves in the latter part of their set.

* Thanks to Jakob for passing along the title to this one.
