The Outer Vibe 

When: Mon., Feb. 1, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: Free
The cover art of the Outer Vibe’s latest album Full Circle features a brain in a blender surrounded by pineapple, coconuts and mangoes. That’s how it feels when you listen to this music — which they describe as cinematic surf disco — like your noggin is getting chopped and smoothed into a musical piña colada. It’s untamed rock packed with summery hooks and loud trumpet and ’60s-sounding good feelings (even during the ballads). You never know what will happen next — there’s even a track called “Mystery.” The five-piece out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, is clearly trying to make listeners smile and dance and forget about their troubles, at least for a little while. At the band’s Checkerboard performance next Monday, the smiling, dancing and forgetting should come all too easily.
