Acid Box Promotions presents our favourite kind of Brazilian.. the psychedelic rock kind in the form of Boogarins! They were first introduced to Brighton in March 2018 as tour support for Tune-Yards and we are proud to host their first Brighton headline show!
Boogarins’ Fernando “Dino” Almeida and Benke Ferraz began playing music together as teenagers in the central Brazilian city of Goiânia – creating psychedelic pop in their parents’ gardens, filtering their country’s rich musical history through a very modern lens. By the time the group’s home-recorded debut LP, ‘As Plantas Que Curam’ (2013), was released worldwide, the band had recruited a proper rhythm section and were developing a name around Goiânia. Soon after, the group was booking regular gigs in São Paulo and across the country. Ultimately, with glowing praise from critics abroad (Chicago Tribune #9 Album of 2013) and a growing international audience, 2014 saw Boogarins circling the globe continually – headlining clubs and playing festivals from Austin to London, Paris to Madrid, New York to San Francisco, Santiago to Mexico City, playing alongside many great artists around the world.
MOJO Rising! “Brazilian Boogarins subtly update the Tropicália template by taking in acid-fried indie rock on MANUAL.” - Mojo Magazine, February 2016
“There is a Brazilian psychedelic-rock tradition, for sure. But Boogarins doesn’t sound beholden to the documents of it. It’s not a band of formalists doing homage work… “Manual” connect(s) generally to plenty of things: to the Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows,” recorded nearly exactly 50 years ago, and then to early Pink Floyd, and out into 1990s post rock and the current international neo-psychedelic map of bands like Dungen and Temples.” - Ben Ratliff, The New York Times, April 2016
“Boogarins have blossomed into a worldwide force beyond their native Brazil.” - Rudi Greenberg, The Washington Post, July 2016
“Even if you don’t speak the language, the message is clear: This is an album that is begging you to confront your cynical ways and reconcile
them with the realities of the world around you, whether those truths are ‘good’ or ‘bad.’” – Consequence of Sound, 2017
