Party with Sioux Falls band Wumpus during a release show for its new CD, “The Rug,” at 9 p.m. Saturday at Skelly’s Pub, 130 S. Phillips Ave. Cover is $5.
Bandmates are Sean Egan (electric guitar/ bass/keyboard), Matt McFarland (drums), Rich Hastings (keyboard/electric guitar/ trumpet), Chad McKinney (electric guitar/ vocals) and Jason Hegg (bass/electric guitar/ vocals). Members have been in other bands during the past few years, including Spooncat!, This Wine Is Mine, Snakebeard Jackson, Thunderjeep, The Flow and The Masons.
The band will play its new album in its entirety with Mike Hart, drummer on the CD, performing. New drummer McFarland will take over for the rest of the show.
Wumpus plays original music influenced by Talking Heads, Frank Zappa, Wilco, the Velvet Underground and Ween. The band’s new 14-track disc is produced and mixed by Xopher Smith, mastered by Jonathon Hegg and it features case design by Scott Ehrisman.
Wumpus’ style ranges from rock, pop and country to surf rock, experimental psychedelic music and what the band calls “spaced-out stoner music.”
As the band says, with Wumpus, “you never know what you’ll get, and rarely get what you know.”
