Night Beats - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Night Beats
Any number of bands cite 60’s Texas psych as an influence, but rarely does a group actually capture what made those bands special. Following their debut EP also on Trouble In Mind, The Night Beats have expanded on the bedroom immediacy of their first recordings to create an LP that perfectly captures and modernizes the hallucinogenic and exhilaratingly demonic aura of bands like The 13th Floor Elevators and Golden Dawn. With blazing guitar work and a razor sharp rhythm section Danny Lee Blackwell and company mutate conventional chords & progressions into a mind-blowing sonic sprawl. The record reels you in with 2-3 minute pop songs like ‘Ain’t Dumbo’ and ‘Dial 666,’ forging a landscape that then throws you into a chaotic journey of jams a’la ‘Dewayne’s Drone’ and ‘Little War in the Midwest’ that bend and meander but never overstay their welcome. Tune in, turn on, & drop that needle on this record!
The Mystery Lights - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Mystery Lights
The Mystery Lights are a five-piece American garage rock band from California, currently residing in New York City.

Heavily inspired by raw, hard-hitting 1960’s garage rock and late 70’s punk, their sound is blues based with extreme psychedelic elements, and has been described as “high-energy fueled garage rock action”.

They have recently shared the stage with artists such as Night Beats, Shannon & The Clams, Devendra Banhart, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Heaters, and more.
