Biography

Bourgeois Mystics is a for-profit, personal growth cult and “genre-defying dance party waiting to explode,” headquartered in Austin, TX. Founded in late 2014 by four acquisitive ascetics, they quickly blossomed into a multi-national sonic powerhouse, focusing their expressive musical talents on a wildly original sound reminiscent of the abstract wit of MF DOOM, zany dweebiness of The B-52's, epic arrangements of Ennio Morricone, and funky grooves of Jamiroquai, all culminating in a distinct sound that’s been described as “Zappa meets OutKast”. The band has been recognized for their virtuosic musicianship & songwriting as well as their live shows, “an absurdist splatter of funk-rock, hip-hop, and jazz” that sets audiences ablaze with their “psychedelic Monty Python” tongue-in-cheek humor and bombastic energy. Notable accomplishments include sharing bills with big names like George Clinton & Grupo Fantasma, two national tours, playing well over 200 shows, headlining a couple Texas and California music festivals, accruing a devoted fanbase, and their big win of the “Keepin’ it Weird Award” at the 2018 Austin Music Video Fest. In 2017, the band bought a 38-acre commune-definitely-not-a-cult just south of Austin, in which they created new music in which they imbued with aspects of their philosophy of "spiritual materialism": the idea that spiritual enlightenment is attained attained by the acquisition of obscene amounts of material wealth. They all adhere to a strict airatarian diet and execute their daily farm chores (such as vacuuming the grass and raking the bushes) with utmost precision.
