Binge Magick

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

Respected by some, and reviled by most, Binge Magick is Boston's premier conspiracy meme rock band. Headlining venues across the East Coast, and finding themselves on several government watch lists in the process, Binge Magick have built an underground following reminiscent only of early Communism in the McCarthy era. Their #LegalizeIt Tour touches down in Somerville this Porchfest season. 

One Love. One Jah. One Goal.
