Telepath tore up the MD/VA/DC area between October 19 and October 25, playing a total of four shows in those six days. KnoxFest kicked off our mini-tour, with an early-evening set that blew everyone away. The webcast is soon-to-be posted, so you’ll be able to see for yourself how ridiculous Telepath was. “Can’t Come Down” was a definite crowd pleaser; the dance floor filled up as attendants realized the power Telepath beholds.
We had a few days’ wait after KnoxFest, but our Telepath craving was soon satisfied. Friday the 24th, College Park’s own DJ Iggz hosted the band at WMUC for a live broadcast. Stream it here.
That evening, Telepath rocked Baltimore’s Bedrock with Conspirator (tDB side project), MO2 (Mind Orchestra), Dr. Fameus (tDB side project), and Sonkin. The Bisco boys love Telepath as much as we do, apparently. Unfortunately, I wasn’t at that show, but the general consensus was something like “incredible”.
On Saturday night, the final night of Telepathtober, the band played with TractorBeam, Dr. Fameus (playing in between TractorBeam sets), MO2, and Sonkin. This show was originally supposed to have the same lineup as the night before, but at the last minute, Jon Gutwillig (tDB’s guitarist) decided to show and make this the best. night. ever. TractorBeam is another tDB side project, and is essentially The Disco Biscuits sans vocals. They rarely play together, and this night was made even more special by the fact that tDB only has one show scheduled between Camp Bisco and Carribean Holidaze. Telepath shocked the crowd that night with a set that was so energy-filled, it was awe-inspiring. The boys rocked the stage with an almost non-stop set that kept the packed crowd sweating and shaking through their entire performance. They were an incredible choice as a tDB opener.
Listen to Telepath. Love Telepath.
My attendance: Three shows in six days. My head is still spinning.
Telepath is performing shows all over the country, including a Thanksgiving weekend opening slot for Lotus in New York at The Fillmore – Irving Plaza. This Halloween, you’ll find them with Conspirator and Orchard Lounge for a sold-out evening at Highline Ballroom. Check out their new release, “Contact”; the official party is at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC with Dr. Fameus on November 15, but the album is already available for purchase on iTunes and CD Baby. Don’t steal music.
