Sleepytime Gorilla Museum
i live in orlando, a city full of talent overshadowed by the "pop" monster. i was fortunate enough to see s.g.m. twice in a month. i left both shows feeling inspired. i was totally blown away by the performance (musically and astheticly).
I just saw them four times in a week. They never played their songs the same way twice. They are a jam band, but in what genre, I am not sure. I was sure I would be sick of them, but they have only drawn me in further. They are simply the best.

word on the street is that they're coming out with a new album on mimicry records (secret chief 3, estradasphere) i'll see them tonight for the third time. i'll ask them.
I saw the New Year's Eve show and was completely obliterated...not by the liquor...by the band. On NYE 2002 we partied like it was 1997...
I was a fan of the previous incarnation of SGM, Idiot Flesh. I've seen SGM all 9 times that they have played Seattle, and even gone to Portland for a few shows. YOU WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE ANYTYHING LIKE THEM!!!!! No live show is ever the same, visually, but the music is dead on every time. This is the music that will bring corporate rock to its' knees.
Rock Against Rock!!!!!!!!!!

saw in orlando for the third time on new years eve at wills pub. this was the best show in town that night and was blown away for the third time. you do not want to pass up a chance to see them, you won't regret it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I saw them in Austin recently with Skeleton Key.....
What a show. Those guys were so cool man. They kept the enegy going. I loved the Lap bass-- looks like a pedal steel or lap steel. It was like 8 feet long or something. Mad scientists is what they are. Mad.
What doors Idiot Flesh opened for me musically, this band SGM has only furthered that influence. I've had the extreme pleasure of seeing this band a total of five times in Fort Worth, Texas, each time having the pleasure of enjoying small talk with the band members. Not only some of the most diverse and dynamic musicians and performers I'll ever have the pleasure of experiencing, but also a group of the most sociable people I've ever met. Bands like SGM, Idiot Flesh, Uz Jsme Doma, etc. hold not only Rock's saving graces in their hands, but those of modern music period!
I saw SGM for the first time in NYC last year. I had no idea who they were as they were following an avante-garde Jazz act. I don't think anyone there knew who they were. Their appearance made me curious so I figured I hang-out for a song or two to see what this was all about. Next thing I knew I had been hit by the SGM truck. Then they left town. Now what I really want to know is: what are they doing now? When are they coming back to NYC? I need to be run-over like that again!!!
whats the deal with stgm not being more popular man! oh geesus they are so strange ya know
and i love that
much love to stgm
devoted friend and junkie
I finally got to see them live last month, and sweet jesus they were good. One of the best shows I've ever been to, so energetic, entertaining, original, and fucking nice! I talked to just about every member of the band, after the show, collecting autographs for the new live album that I bought by them, and everyone was very gracious and personable. It's so nice when a band rocks so hard and yet is so awesome to boot, much like Quintron, one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.
Alright, bye now,
there's a yahoo group for sgm that would love your input if ya wanna discuss further. Yes yes yes - they are indeed fantastic. I agree with everyone here.
