The Heavy Pets w/ The Mindful
Saturday, August 24 / 9:30 pm-1:00 am
Catapulting onto our stage all the way from South Florida, The Heavy Pets are a five-piece band referred to by Relix Magazine as “a living, breathing force of nature.” They have been rampaging through the national touring circuit since 2005, playing over 1200 shows. The 2018 release of their acclaimed album “Strawberry Mansion” added more depth to what was already an expansive repertoire. These guys lay it down heavy with the funk, electro-jams, indie rock and a splash of reggae. Their extended sets have been described as “full blown musical salvation.” They nearly blew the roof off last time they were here. We expect they will finish the job.
Founded by Berklee College of Music alum Brett Vaughn, The Mindful combines the instrumental exploration and improvisation of jazz-fusion with psychedelic colors, progressive tendencies and indie rock intensity. This is a power trio on a quest to blaze new trails. Their original material is truly enlightening as Vaughn’s songwriting opens up unexpected corridors of emotion. His visionary guitar playing melds triumphantly with the thunderous rhythm section.
