David Toomey: WEIRD LIFE

Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 8:30am

You may think you know a definition of life, but you would be wrong. Many biologists and scientists are struggling to come up with a theory of life that we can test. In recent decades bacteria have been discovered living in hot springs in temperatures high enough to cook all other life. Life has now been found living in sulphur springs, in caustic soda lakes, deep in the earth’s crust and even in the salt lakes. All places we thought life could never exist. But these extremophile forms of life are only the beginning. Supposed there is life not based on the Carbon atom?

Amherst Town Common

Amherst, MA 01002

Benefit - Yeasayer, Ducktails and Converse Rubber Tracks recording artists Bodega Girls and Camden for One Fund Boston

Yeasayer's third album, Fragrant World, is a hulking beast of a record. Keyboards clank and wheeze, tiny claps stumble against busted drum machines, and there's very little obvious guitar. It's an album that grapples with the schizophrenia of the modern world by gathering piles of electronics and molding them into something huge and often gorgeous. It's a testament to their sound and the unique identity they've carved out for themselves in the music community.
