Os Mutantes headlines The Troubadour on Thursday, May 2. A few years back, Os Mutantes played the Hollywood Bowl and revealed what we are all missing. The absurdist ethereal pop music has inspired many musicians since their breakup decades before, and now their back, and we’re ready for more. Their records have been passed from musician to musician, inspiring and altering the contemporary musical landscape. Os Mutantes’ cut-and-paste, sonic collage approach and cultural irony, is an aesthetic now prevalent in modern music. The band formed in the early sixties during a time of turmoil. Music was the only outlet for expression and the band, along with other musicians, writers and artists created a musical style with elements of political criticism, prankster humor, and an eclectic range of musical styles. Os Mutantes has come a long way since their breakup, and people are ready to listen and appreciate this outer world Brazilian group. Supporting Os Mutantes is Capsula, a loud, naughty, and boisterous band from Argentina. Join us for an intimate night full of great Tropicalia music.
