Opie Otterstad has added “a little Hollywood in the paintings” he’s created for this year’s World Series Champion Chicago Cubs (that still feels like typing a foreign language).
Kidzapalooza is for the children, and we teach the children!
“We are the new Americana.”

Violently smooth riffs and beautifully melodic hooks from the core of The Mars Volta, singer/songwriter Cedric Bixler-Zavala and guitar virtuoso Omar Rodriguez-Lopez just can’t get enough of each other and their drummer Dave Elitch. Their musical genius keeps bringing them back into each others’ projects, which currently means a new full-time collaboration with Red Hot Chili Peppers’ bassist, Flea, that, from the initial rehearsal sessions sounds like fans of punk, The Mars Volta, and RHCP are in for a treat. Hell, those who just love a tasty jam will get into it. Flea’s custom magical bass from Damien Hirst gives Antemasque a new edge.
Long gone are the days of At the Drive-In (and apparently The Mars Volta), but as long as these guys have a musical pulse on the scene, we’ll keep getting new names. But the core remains the same while the songs push the boundaries of psychedelia, experimentation, noise, and good old rock and/or roll.
New song has already been leaked to several radio stations, and we can probably expect an album and tour in the coming year…
