Grown-Ups Get Young for a Night at Boston Children’s Museum
Fancy Life

How did you play when you were a child? Maybe you were one of the athletic kids, racing the other kids across the asphalt and inventing new games. Maybe you were curious and enterprising, concocting experiments with the condiments in your fridge.  Maybe you spent those endless days getting lost in a box of crayons, or in the pages of a comic book.

The four dudes that make up the local garage-rock outfit CreaturoS are no strangers to the Boston music circuit, having all played in a number of bands before joining forces for this one. Spawned out of the demise of the more psych-heavy band, Doomstar!, and a few other local acts, CreaturoS is an amalgamation of reverb-drenched riffs and heavy-hitting psychedelic explorations. They play fast. They play loud. And their tracks find strength in the jam-centric prowess of all (now four) guys playing together in the Boston music scene for quite some time now. More
