Optometri, Magma Carta
701A E. Washington Ave
Madison, WI, 53703
This event is 21 and over
Optometri is the best band of Russian has-beens ever to vanish from sight at the height of their popularity only to re-emerge unexpectedly more than a decade later in South-Central Wisconsin in a new millennium whose sensibilities they do not fully grasp. Frontman Yuri Mishkin and his merry band of ersatz surgeons will rock you from east to west and back again with their unique brand of pre-post-Soviet musical and lyrical wizardry. Optometri is a true geo-politico-historical treasure, and quite possibly the most brilliant act in the world.
Magma Carta is a good band that most people will like. Some of you will probably even love us. Which we're fine with.
People in the know say our sound clouds have passing wisps of REM, Guided By Voices, The Shins, Arthur Hodgson and the Kneecaps, and Les Garçons de la Plage (aka The French Beach Boys).
We're available for parties, stadium tours, and just about anything in between that doesn't require a federal background check. Members include Scott Stetson, Kenn Busch, Tyler Wood, Kevin Longino and Zeppo, who hasn't shown up since the first practice, but we still have his van.
