Scary Jungle presents ZAIREEKA LISTENING PARTY With live sets from HOTT MT and BUTCHER BOY This special event is a rare opportunity to hear The Flaming Lips' experimental 1997 masterpiece in it's entirety. All four CDs will be played simultaneously at the Echo in spectacular octophonic sound. Open your mind, sit back, and immerse yourself in thirty-five thousand feet of despair. The evening will include live performances and other entertainments from HOTT MT (whose single Never Hate Again featured a collaboration with Wayne Coyne) and Butcher Boy, who are bringing their atmospheric post-rock/folk sound all the way from Portland, Maine.

HOTT MT
HOTT MT
International sensation HOTT MT (Hour Of The Time Majesty Twelve), is an experimental post-pop collective based in Los Angeles, CA. HOTT MT is the result of an ongoing curiosity project between Queen Ashi Dala and Spooky Tavi, which expanded to include multi-instrumentalist Bahd Bad in December of 2011, and guitarist Guitty Dryver and drummer Chairman Towel in early 2012. Thoughts and anxieties about myth, experience, conspiracy theories, and Thailand fuel the groups explorations.



HOTT MT made headlines in 2012 when they drove from LA to Oklahoma City to pay homage to Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips. The trip resulted in a collaboration between Coyne and HOTT MT on the song “Never Hate Again”, as well as music for Ke$ha and Erykah Badu. “Never Hate Again” was released by Origami Vinyl in August 2012 with an accompanying video also featuring Coyne.


HOTT MT have recently returned to LA after showcasing at the SXSW music festival in Austin TX, and are currently working on new music with Artist / Producer Pop Levi. Their debut LP “I Made This” is slated for release May 21 on Manimal Vinyl / Frenchkiss. Other recent highlights include work w/ The Flaming Lips on a Stone Roses cover album (release TBD), live dates with Bat For Lashes, Wavves, Django Django, The Mynabirds, Vinyl Williams, Robert DeLong, Hands, and The Flaming Lips on their Guinness World Record-setting event.
Butcher Boy
Butcher Boy
Blanketing the continental United States in their dark, ethereal species of music, Maine’s preeminent ghost-story group Butcher Boy embarks on their first national tour this January in support of their newest work Shoreless Sea, set to release December 20, 2012 on Birthquake Records. Former patrons of the folk-punk idiom, Butcher has grown beyond their frenetic roots to impart what the Portland Phoenix calls “an atmospheric marriage of decayed folk and clattering post-rock” with their newest album featuring “the finest post-rock passages any Maine artist has put to tape in ages”. Come and enjoy tales from the dark watches of the night.
