Hopscotch After-Party: The Body: Bad Dream, improvisation by Megafaun and Old Bricks

When: Sun., Sept. 12, 10 p.m. 2010

Providence, R.I., duo The Body had to cancel its Raleigh date last week due to family sickness, but the pair of burly Little Rock transplants—vocalist and guitarist Chip King and drummer Lee Buford—rebooked the back end of their national tour so as to begin in North Carolina. If rebooking half of a tour sounds like a move swiped from the punk scene, you called it: Though The Body generally gets tagged as a doom metal band, their dynamic, damaged blasts come littered with the carcasses of hardcore and noise records. Their proper debut, All the Waters of the Earth Turn to Blood, is one of the most adventurous metal records in recent memory—a somehow affirming blast of apocalypse mayhem. New York's Bad Dream opens, along with a special improvisation between Old Bricks and Megafaun. This is a Hopscotch Music Festival after-party. —Grayson Currin
