It’s really, really tough to accurately describe the music of Gainesville, Florida act Pearl & the Oysters without making it sound utterly awful, and yet in reality it’s a fever dream of glorious oddities. Their online bio reads: “After winning a free trip to the Ostreoid Asteroid Resort (from whence came their name) on the back of a dehydrated cereal box, a joyous society of galactic gleaners began making music together under the Neptunian moniker Pearl & the Oysters.” Alright, we can go with that, but it doesn’t fully cover the space-age, deep-sea, tiki wonders that will send you into a tizzy. Just go see them. Scott Gimore, The Incredible Shagatha and his Moog, and Holy Pink also play.
Pearl & the Oysters plays with Scott Gilmore, The Incredible Shagatha & his Moog, and Holy Pink at 8 p.m. on Monday, February 10 at the Hi-Hat.
