Pissing one’s pants at a museum is not a common occurrence. Then again, no museum has exhibited anything as menacing as Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, a Bay Area-based performance art band which might incite a little more than a loss of bladder control when they perform at Solar Culture on Saturday evening.

Watching the costumed multi-instrumentalists of SGM generate mouth-watering pandemonium with their adversarial lyrics and incomparable rock/semi-traditional rhythms is as frightful as it is awe-inspiring. [Read article]
