Weird Phishes – Performing Radiohead’s ‘Ok Computer’
Friday, September 27, 2019
Weird Phishes is exactly what it sounds like – the iconic melancholy rock songs of Radiohead completely reborn as danceable, crunchy jams. Featuring a rotating cast of New England musicians from Nemes, Gang of Thieves, Lux, and Mad Yonder, the group will be bringing their take on “Ok Computer” to Nectar’s, performing the entire record followed by other favorites, tossing in Phish mashups, teases, and other surprises along the way.
“While the hybrid cover band thing has been done before, the way Weird Phishes combines their two sources of inspiration is both imaginative and principled.” – Live For Live Music
“Successfully fuses the work of the groundbreaking experimental indie band with the music of Phish.” -Relix/JamBands.com
“I was in awe from the first note. Weird Phishes is talent, creativity, bravery, and a whole lot of fun mixed into a tight package…They straddle the boundaries of strange and cool like some sort of cult phenomenon making for a memorable night. Not too many people would think that would or could work, but here comes Weird Phishes pulling it off with style.” -Live Music News & Review
