Though the band doesn’t play often, Bratwurst is notorious for its onstage antics. Tyler Scouton is the ringmaster of the motley collection of performers, which also includes Ben Tryon, Jason Ratajek, Brennan Atchison and Chris Modec-Halverson. Bratwurst’s avant-garde industrial sound is borne of both conventional and unconventional instruments. Metallic objects like sewage pipe and garbage cans augment guitar, bass and drums. Raw meat, projected video, pyrotechnics and power tools typically play a role in performances. Those who are squeamish and noise-averse should steer clear.
