This Friday we’re proud to support some of the most original rock music around. The Mercury Tree is a Portland-based band which specializes in microtonal compositions that sound like the kind of music aliens might make. It’s some pretty out-there stuff, reminiscent perhaps of certain King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard material. Also on the bill is Oceanaut, who is one of our favorite Tulsa bands because they (like us) strive toward a mixture of the unusual and the appealing. Come on down to Hunt Club and share in the adventure!
