Get Weird and Catch Bubblegum Octopus at Limelight


  • Courtesy
With a name like Bubblegum Octopus, anyone would hope that the music could be as magical as the amazing name. Thankfully, it is.

Combining the textures, tones and elements of chiptune, glitch, casiocore, grind metal, metal core, early 2000s indie rock and ’80s pop, Bubblegum Octopus is sort of all over the place. But there’s enough cohesiveness for it all to still make sense. It feels familiar, but definitely fucking weird in the most beautiful and creative way.

If you’re searching for an experience in the avant-garde, a journey to Limelight Monday night might float your boat.
