Doors at 7:30 | Show at 8
For all of its gleaming guitars and glossy euro-flavored synthwork, Bottled Up’s filled with the mental residue one’s gets after asking the void to fuck off. Co-led with Colin Kelly – a disciple of D.C.’s avant-analog scene – joined by Michael Mastrangelo and Jeremy Ray on dueling guitars, Chloe Menderson on synths/vocals, and supplanted by Rao’s wunderkid brother, Rohit, on acid-jazz-does-punk drums, Bottled Up conjures the sort of psycho-potpurri-spirit that’s only given to the sort of band that’s able to conjure a vision of the things they love, the mountains they’ve overcome, and mutate it all into something you can dance to.
