Starline Social Club – Oakland

Formed in Broooklyn by sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson, Prince Rama are an experimental outfit highly influenced by the New Age movement, punk rock and electronic dance music.

At the Starline Social Club last Wednesday, the duo looked like they were straight out of a Burning Man camp, sporting the ugliest fluorescent fashion we all thought had died in the late 80’s. The clothing isn’t the only ghost from that time period, as Prince Rama use a lot of electronic instruments. As the band’s frontwoman, Taraka is an unstoppable force, jumping all over the stage and prompting the audience to dance the night away.

Prince Rama are a very prolific force. Since their formation, they have released eight albums. Their latest studio effort Xtreme Now was released last month and will keep the band touring for the remaining of 2016. They’re not your average rock, punk or even performance-art act, but if you dig weird stuff, they’re definitely worth checking out.
