Psychedelic Hard Rock Band LANTERN to Headline Black Cat Show with Brain Paint on Saturday, Sept. 7

by Becky Petchenik

Aug 14, 2013 On Saturday, Sept. 7, Black Cat Burrito in downtown Boone will host Boone Live alumni LANTERN, a hard and heavy rock band with notes of 1960s garage and psychedelic rock.  

Local glitch-punk group, Brain Paint will also be on the ticket.  The show is 18 and up only, starts at 10 p.m. and will cost $5. The show is a “Nothing Good Ever Happens In Boone” Production.


LANTERN are known for their wild antics and chaotic stage presence.  Hailing from Philadelphia, the band’s sound has a distinct flavor of gutter and sleaze but with a spacey vibe that sets LANTERN apart from your average bar band.  

The band’s focus is songwriting team Zachary Devereux Fairbrother and Emily Robb, but the addition of Montreal-native Christian Simmons on drums has given the group precision and drive.  

Heavy end gain and noise blended with Fairbrother’s crooning vocals will be set to a catastrophe of energy and charisma that is sure to make memories and break a bar stool or two.

Formed by members of Slopes, Katterwaul, Hats and Drippy Inputs, Brain Paint is a local act that is quickly becoming a fan favorite.  

Their noisy and energetic take on psychedelic punk is distinct to the band and lends a novelty to the genre that has been long absent.
