Beware! the Other Head of Science took the Townsend Park Stage of LarkFest, almost blithely unaware of the festivities occurring simultaneously on Lark Street. Beware! were in their own adjacent universe. Illustrating this point, the gang of six wore matching, dept. of public works-orange t-shirts hand-stenciled with the words, “Larp Fest 09.”
Proud purveyors of electro-pop, Beware’s ploy to steal your retinas was just as quickly followed by a compelling and successful attempt to steal all ears. The frenetic band exploded with energy, confetti and music. The set was littered with clever numbers like “Monster Song” about Lake Champlain’s Champ and “Winter Coats” (slang for beards).
