If you've ever listened to the Sleepytime Gorilla Museum you know these guys redefine the notion of what can be done with metal. Taking cues from the likes of everyone from the Futurists to the work of King Crimson, Sleepytime is one of the truly original groups to come from the new wave of Bay Area avant metal. Their live show especially is something to behold as they have been known to appropriate everything from puppet shows to performance art into their shows. They rarely perform and here at the Weekly we are excited to hear the announcement of a show on February 16th at the Great American Music Hall . Mark your calendars for what will prove to be music performance mayhem. The picture above doesn't even explain the half of it.
