Shpongle plays Neighborhood Theatre tonight (4/17/12)

Shpongle Shpongle plays around with psychonautic scholar Terence McKenna's "stoned ape" theory of evolution. In short, early man ingested magic mushrooms that opened the hominid mind to religion, language and music. Whether you buy the idea or not, the psyc-ambient duo of self-styled "hallucinogenius" Simon Posford and magic flautist Raja Ram take the notion and run with it. The two offer a mix of world music, down-tempo electronica, earth-mother backing vocals and quicksilver flute. Their live DJ show mind-melds higher consciousness and body grooves in the swirling spiral nebula called Mind Fuck. 'Shrooms optional. $22-$24. Neighborhood Theatre.
