Jan 24, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - Jan 25, 2014 @ 2:00 am| $10
PSYCH OUT! is a night of psychedelic music and visuals that will expand your mind and open your third eye.
Black Valleys is the alter ego of the modern day psychedelic warlords White Hills. Comprised of Dave W. and Ego Sensation, Black Valleys is an outlet for the two to explore a free flowing sonic landscape without drums. 2013 was a busy year for White Hills, in which the band found themselves touring heavily in Europe and in the US with the likes of The Cult and Kylesa, releasing their 7th studio album “So You are…So You’ll Be” on Thrill Jockey and appearing in the latest Jim Jarmusch feature Only Lovers Left Alive. Now that the two have some time off they have retreated back into their dark side. Black Valleys has released two albums to date, last years “Oddity IV: Out Psychedelia” on Drug Space Records and the S/T 2011 album on Aquarius Records.
In 2013, after two impressive and increasingly exploratory full-lengths on NYC’s Tee Pee Records, Brooklyn-based psychotomimeticists Weird Owl unfurled a new 10″ on A Recordings, Ltd., the label owned by Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Their presence and longevity in the New York psych scene has garnered international attention and they have shared stages with bands such as White Hills, NAAM, La Otracina, Hopewell, Earthless, Sleepy Sun, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, Quest for Fire, Spindrift and The Black Angels, including at the 2011 Austin Psych Fest. – https://www.facebook.com/WEIRDOWLCHEMY
THE SPACE MERCHANTS
Like the Universe itself their music is vast and impressive. Think Spacemen 3, Lungfish, The Black Angels, Will Oldham. Pulsing like a quasar, drummer Carter Logan (SQÜRL, Mount Olympus) and bassist Aileen Brophy (Corita) provide the molten core around which expansive layers of male and female vocals, the blistering guitar of Michael Guggino (Mount Olympus, This Radiant Boy) and the hypnotic keyboard of Ani Monteleone swirl in a melodic synthesis that in turn evokes a windswept prairie, a Hawkwindian black hole and a boogie band in the back room at the edge of the Earth. http://thespacemerchants.bandcamp.com/
LIQUID LIGHT LAB
Old school experimental psychedelic light show. The light show is treated as a visual instrument. Handmade organic artwork is created live on the spot, in real time. Liquid Light Lab has accompanied dozens of musicians, including The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The New Riders of the Purple Sage, Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, Break Science and more.
