Sunburned Hand of the Man (BOS)
1222 Commonwealth Ave.
Allston, MA 02134
Boston psych experimentalists Sunburned Hand of the Man formed in 1997 from the remnants of a short-lived psychedelic punk project, and have spent the last decade and a half as one of the area’s most prolific, unpredictable bands. Their lineup is amorphous and their approach highly improvisational; no two performances, even of the same song, are ever the same. Different instruments and different members contribute something new to each show in the band’s ever-evolving sound. Sunburned Hand has released upwards of 30 recorded works on a number of labels over the course of a 17-year career, including Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace. They’ve shared stages with the likes of Sonic Youth, Mission of Burma and Sunn O))), and they’ve collaborated with Together Boston alum Four Tet on multiple releases.
