Roominations: A B-movie rock opera

Thursday, 5 April 2018, 11.00pm

Dr. Mindflip are a delightfully-bizarre bunch that weave their considerable musical chops into a scintillating blur of styles. This is Supertramp on the tear with David Lynch, the manic energy of The Mighty Boosh jamming with the sneering spectre of Frank Zappa – intense, atmospheric, impossibly-catchy music. The Doctor himself holds the show together on keys and coaxes jazzy avant-pop from the aristocratic Owly, soulful sax-wielding Sage, gently unnerving Dollhead, and a VERY cheerful drummer.

This is a rare chance to catch an entire live performance of their rock opera Roominations – a surreal musical journey into the heart of the worst movie ever made. Inspired by Tommy Wiseau’s infamous cinematic catastrophe The Room – and James Franco’s critically-acclaimed homage The Disaster Artist – Dr. Mindflip have created a spellbindingly strange show that is equal parts The Wall and Ed Wood. Not to be missed!

"An intoxicating cocktail...haunting and insidious...without a doubt one of the most bizarre and overwhelming albums I've heard in a while. It's magical - to be able to get the listeners' imagination to run even wilder than the artists who composed it takes something special."
- Remy

"Avant-pop with teeth…a master of reinventing catchiness"
- Synthesis Magazine
