Pink Mountaintops


Wednesday Dec 5, 2012 (9pm–midnight)


Union Pool

484 Union Ave




While Black Mountain is his main concentration, Pink Mountaintops has long acted as Stephen McBean's opportunity to truly let his freak flag fly. Even though there are a few similarities (McBean sings for both bands), Pink Mountaintops relies less on the heavy riffage, and is a looser, more experimental project that at times references Bo Diddley, other times Sonic Youth, some contemporary indie rock, and a little Black Sabbath for good measure. The other difference between the two bands is that McBean is really Pink Mountaintops only constant member. Any show can feature members of Cat Power, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Black Angels, or about a dozen other big name bands. Just who will show up with McBean for this intimate Union Pool show is anybody's guess.
