Grand openings: Sleepytime Gorilla Museum members offer Free Salamander Exhibit

After a dozen years, three studio albums, and some of the strangest haircuts in the business, art-metal ensemble Sleepytime Gorilla Museum closed its doors in 2011. Now three of its core members — guitarist/vocalist Nils Frykdahl, bassist/vocalist Dan Rathbun, and multi-instrumentalist Michael Mellender — have grabbed a few cohorts (including original drummer David Shamrock) to offer the presumably bizarre Free Salamander Exhibit.

The band’s debut performance will take place July 5 at The New Parish in Oakland, California, with Stolen Babies and Mirthkon. Be there if you dare.
