Just when you thought Austin was shutting down for a years worth of airing out and mopping up after SXSW, here comes the Austin Psyche Fest. The bands gathering for this 3rd annual trip out are the last ones standing. Presented by The Black Angels and The Reverberation Appreciation Society, it runs April 23-25th at The Mohawk, multi-stage venue on the corner of Red River and 10th Street, where I once learned to levitate.
The fest is all about a weekend of drone, fuzz and having your mind blown. Lots of psychedelic projections, film and light shows, and other “things” to ensure a third-eye opening experience too.
The line up includes:
Pink Mountaintops (solo)
The Black Angels – “The Prodigal Sun”
Pink Mountaintops – “While We Were Dreaming”
The Raveonettes – “Heart of Stone”
Other acts announced are: YaHoWa 13, Spindrift, Warpaint, Indian Jewelry, The Vandelles, The Meek, Headdress, Ringo Deathstarr, Christian Bland and the Revelators, Daughters of the Sun, Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor, The Night Beats, Smoke and Feathers, Shapes Have Fangs, Screen Vinyl Image, Black Acid, and Ghost Songs.
