WHAT'S HAPPENING

CT’s Local Music Showcase: The Fantastic Plastics

Here is something from Peoria’s The Fantastic Plastics. Though the band officially formed in New York City around 2010, all the members are originally from the Central Illinois area and just moved back to Peoria last month. The band consists of Tyson on Guitar and Vocals, (former member of Ham, The Amazing Kill-O-Watts, The Red Hot Valentines, Analog Saves The Planet, and Mandroid), Mandy on Vocals, Keyboard, and costume design (former member of Analog Saves The Planet), and Dylan on Beats, Production, and Video, both live installation and promotional (former member of Mandroid). The band usually performs as a Duo and began playing live around New York City, and eventually that region, with occasional stops back in the midwest, after signing to indie punk label Altercation Records. The band has released one full length album (Devolver) and two EPs. The Fantastic Plastics will be playing a special Homecoming/Tour Kick off show before hitting the road with the Vans Warped Tour at the Rail II on May 27th. Here is a song off the most recent EP, Invasion, called TV Head.
