On June 24th at 9PM, 49th State Brewing Company - Anchorage will be hosting a live performance by Boogarins, a psychedelic rock band from Goiânia, Brazil. Boogarins’ Fernando “Dino” Almeida and Benke Ferraz began playing music together as teenagers in the central Brazilian city of Goiânia– recording psychedelic pop in their parents’ gardens, filtering their country’s rich musical history through a very modern lens.
The group’s debut LP, As Plantas Que Curam, was a decidedly lo-fi home recording pieced together in isolation, before the pair had recruited a proper rhythm section or played a single gig. By the time the album was released in late 2013 on Other Music Recording Co., Boogarins were already developing a name around Goiânia, and soon after, the now-expanded band was booking regular gigs in São Paulo and across the country. In 2015, the band issued their sophomore studio long player, Manual, again via Other Music.
They have since played many concerts in the U.S. including several dates opening for Andrew Bird and Swedish psych-rock favorite, Dungen. They have also recently played Levitation Fest in Austin, TX and will be playing Levitation Fest in Vancouver, BC.
