This week, we spent some time with one of our SB7 groups the wild Super Geek League to find out what was happening with this amazing “SciFidelic Cirque Du Punk experience.” For those who are new to this kind of full-throttle music artistry, SGL takes their unique hybrid sci-fi psychedelic funk-punk sound and incorporates cirque performers, projections, light shows and frenetic interactive theatrical antics including pillow fight mosh pits, industrial strength confetti canons and crowd-surfing superheroes.
On deck for this incomparable group is America’s Got Talent Season 8, USC Resolutions for New Year’s Eve and the Chaos party in Toronto. To find out more about their experiences as a group like no other, we asked them a few questions to get some perspective.
What are some venues where you would feel really good about playing?
Any venue that is ready for chaos, craziness and good times is the place we want to be. Usually places where people can cut loose and feel free to get lost and have funtastic adventures are the places we thoroughly enjoy performing. Large stadiums with ample performance space and lots of aerial rigging that allows us to do FIRE is always a very fun place to play. Anyplace where you need a MAP to find the stage from the greenroom…
How are you different from other artists in your genre?
Well we were recently named one of the Weirdest Bands in the World and one of the “Best Masked Bands of All time”, however we don’t wear masks only Goggles and Octa-Mind Headgear so I guess if we had to create a genre for ourselves and compare to other artists in our genre, I guess we would have to say we are different because there is no other band in the world that not only produces its own SciFiDelic touring Circus with our Live Band, but also develops, designs and directs Circus entertainment for large EDM promoters and events. Also, I seriously doubt anyone has a 104 year old Theremin player as well… That’s pretty unique!
What is a source of inspiration when you are feeling stuck on something?
A source of inspiration when we are stuck on something… Whenever you hit a wall, turn your head and go in a different direction. Always hit save and move on to something else…. You can always come back to wherever you left off. Don’t get caught standing still always try and move forward.
What is the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?
Pursuing SGL at all and any costs. More importantly, keeping it going…
