Boston, MA-based quartet Strange Machines is joining in on the Phish Baker’s Dozen late-night fun this summer with their own performance at New York City’s DROM on Wednesday, July 26th. The group, who has been accruing quite a rabid fanbase since their inception back in 2011, will keep the vibe going into the early-morning hours with special guest Eggy, the funky crunchadelic act out of New Haven, CT.

Strange Machines seamlessly blends rock and reggae with elements of funk and livetronica, making for a captivating live performance that is sure to keep you in the right head space following the massive event hosted by Phish and happening just up the road at Madison Square Garden. The band, made up of Mike McDonald (guitars, vocals), Christian Perron (keys), Isaac Civitello (drums, vocals), Craig Holland (bass), and lighting designer Matt Calabrese, recently came off a huge Spring tour, which saw the band support the likes of Twiddle, Dopapod, TAUK, and Kung Fu. On the heels of this major tour, Strange Machines is currently getting ready to release their first full-length album, which is due out this coming fall.

Take a listen to Strange Machines going on a solid run of “Little Monster, Shape of Things > Cocaine Blues > jam > Shape of Things” from their show at Cambridge, MA’s The Sinclair this past April.
