Things can happen quickly for a band when they know the right people. As the guitarist for Mikal Cronin and later bassist in Fuzz, one of Ty Segall’s groups, Chad Ubovich eventually got busy recording his own stuff in his bedroom. In 2012, Segall released those recordings on tape, which led to a record deal for Ubovich and a full-length release last year. Now with a touring band, Meatbodies is showing off Ubovich’s psychedelic-tinged California fuzz-rock all over the West Coast this summer, including the Capitol Hill Block Party and Pickathon Festival and a stop at the Bartlett next Thursday. Prepare for a show that stands to get heavy and then groovy, all in a few quick seconds.
