Morning Teleportation Plays At JJ's Bohemia Sept. 9

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Morning Teleportation is playing JJ's Bohemia on Sept. 9, touring on their new LP Salivating for Symbiosis out now on Glacial Pace.   

Review for Morning Teleportation: 

Morning Teleportation formed in 2005 when Tiger Merrit (vocals/guitar) moved from Chicago to Bowling Green, Ky. for college and met up with childhood friend Travis Goodwin (keyboards/saxophone/vocals).  From the beginning the band has been a roller coaster ride of Rock and Roll sound traveling in and out of psychedelia, indie rock and jazz. Most of the last few years has been spent either in the studio or on the road playing for crowds at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch and supporting the likes of The Flaming Lips, Cage The Elephant and Modest Mouse. 

To see the band perform live is to witness a cacophony of improvisational mayhem and melodic twist and turns. Merrit’s vocals dart sharply in and out of the hectic back beat that the rhythm section holds down.  The sound may be more modern but make no mistake, these are boys who want nothing more than to have a good time in the classic rock idiom. If they can make the crowd smile they can leave happy. 

Morning Teleportation is a house party, a futuristic hootenanny and a backroom jam session all rolled into one.

Roy Exum: Making A Difference

It was about 50 years ago when the late writer Loren Eiseley penned an essay called “The Starfish Thrower” so it’s been one of my favorite stories for almost as long. It tells about a man who walks up to a young boy on a beach, this just after a strong storm had washed hundreds of helpless starfish onto the shore. The boy was picking up the stranded starfish and, one at a time, ... (click for more)
