From Seattle Washington, The Dead Science and Parenthetical Girls performed what they call freaky jazz-pop with cha-cha rhythm in the octogon this past week. Shown in this photo is Parenthetical Girls who opened the show. Parenthetical Girls played some very avant guard rock with a strong Phil Specter influence.
With their drummer gone Dead Science performed as a duo. Recently their drummer had a child and was unable to tour with them. To compensate the bass player, who also played drums with Slender Means added percussion on his upright bass. Both bands were really talented musicians and contributed a cabaret feel to the octogon. After playing the octogon both bands are hoping to take time off from touring to stop at Disneyland in California.[photo: Brad Crutchfield]
