Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Particle/Octopus Prime

When: Sun., Nov. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2014

As the 2000s rolled onward, we all watched electronic music fuse with jam band approaches to live improvisation. It was a huge deal, and several bands really made a gigantic splash on the scene. Particle was one of them. Combining elements of electronica, funk and rock with a heavy angle toward sonic exploration, the band picked up fans on tour and dropped the subgenre-defining album Launchpad in 2004. Frontman and keyboardist Steve Molitz said in a recent interview: “Particle has always been fueled by the energy of our fans, and we’re so excited to get back out on the road full-time, and to share all of this new music with the Particle People.” As a more illustrative bit of context, the band has often termed their sound “space porn,” based on at least one fan’s astute observations. They play the Beachland Ballroom tonight. Showtime is 9 p.m., and tickets cost $15. Octopus Prime, which features members of Particle and Broccoli Samurai, will open the evening's festivities.
