DuoFest 2014: BODYSNATCHERS / Kat & Vegas and The Temple of Boom

DuoFest 2014 - Bodysnatchers Dinosaur

BODYSNATCHERS got DuoFest 2014 off to the start it deserved: by running around the stage maniacally commanding a cast of thousands. The two men from St. Louis–Mitch Eagles and Randy Brachman–anchored characters into physically sound positions and then skitted about the stage using their own bodies like sock-puppets.

Their stories included Chef Boyardee’s ravioli-eating challenge, labor unions vs robots, government dinosaurs (pictured), and a married couple giving birth to an existentially imperiled newborn. All played, of course by these two delightful Mario and Luigi goofballs who remind the audience one of the core values of improv–just go out there and have a good time!

After that, things got real weird with local raconteurs Vegas Lancaster and Cat London. Lancaster is a WitOut favorite over the years; Cat was theĀ 2012 winner of the Jersey Acoustic Music Award for Top Pop/Rock Act. Together they took audience suggestions and made melodic, harmonic, wildly imaginative and borderline incoherent songs about male childbirth (pictured), scary tarantulas’ nice thighs, accidental parking-garage homicide, barbecue grills hanging from a tree like a tire-swing (pictured, sorta) and being born with a weird claw instead of hands.

Cat & Vegas nicely juggled the difficult task of generating musically palatable interlocking vocals while weaving a psychedelic disco full of dreamsicles and swinging barbecues.
