Seafoam and the Psychedelic Chain Gang’s performance at The Highline Ballroom

In an exciting bout of events, my roommate, Jeremy ‘Seafoam’ Green, performed this past Sunday night (Jan 25) at NYC’s prestigious Highline Ballroom (where Bell X1 will be touring soon to promote their new album Blue Lights On The Runway) with his band, Seafoam and the Psychedelic Chain Gang. And what a performance it was.

He performed with the Gyronauts, a NYC group, who are known for “their majestic and formidable glam-rock-your-socks off space age antics and no good low down BurlyQ getting down. The Gyronauts are sure to make every last jaw drop with their silly, eccentric, and day glow fantastic feats of amazement.” What I take this to mean, based on the show, is semi-orgies on stage, Janet Jackson super bowl antics, hula hoops galore, silver dust (like on Tobias in Arrested Development)…you get the idea. Oh, and mind you, this was an all-ages show. 8 year old boys and girls were covering their eyes.

As for the actual band, Seafoam really knows how to put on a show. The band has a bass player, guitarist, drummer, violinist (my favorite) and backup female vocals to go along with Green. And he is quite a figure. He gets himself all painted up for the occasion, wears a gown with no shirt underneath and truly rocks out. His idol being David Bowie, this comes as no surprise – the performance similarities are striking. You can just tell he “feels” the music. While his voice at times can use some refining, he’s not short on style – his tone is highly reminiscent of Colin Meloy of The Decemberists and John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats, hardly a poor comparison.  Anyway, check out Seafoam’s MySpace for some streaming music. They should be making headway in the next few months after playing their most promising gig yet.

Seafoam was apparently also featured as a band of the week over at Pop Tarts Suck Toasted (where you can find some mp3s). Green, needless to say, was pleasantly surprised.

If you like what you hear, email Seafoam for new, free mp3s, and they’ll be more than happy to provide some for you! SeafoamBand@gmail.com
