Austin Psych Fest 2014 – What we saw

The Warlocks at the Thursday kickoff party.

La Femme. Had vaguely heard of them before, but didn’t know just how great they are live. I loved that they stayed in character throughout the weekend.

The Zombies

Barn Owl. Puny human phones can’t capture just how huge their sound was

Zombie Zombie. Total highlight of the fest.

Bardo Pond

Moon Duo

Mono. They don’t play the US frequently, but worth all effort to see.

Medicine

The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Kikagaku Moyo. We were just looking to sit down by the river and take a break. I had no clue who they were, but mid-way through their set you could just feel it: these guys are, well, kicking ass. Standing ovation at the end completely spontaneous and well-deserved. So intense, they play the sitar standing up.

Lorelle Meets The Obsolete

Joel Gion & The Primary Colours

Loop. Pretty much the reason for going to Psych Fest this year.

Weekly Links: March 16 – March 22

White+ at Los Globos last week:

  • A 26-Story History of San Francisco: a psychosocial history of the former Pacific Bell building at 140 New Montgomery in San Francisco
  • A short history of the Public Storage building on Beverly & Virgil. I’ve been mildly obsessed with this building on the Silver Lake/Hollywood border for a long time. Never suspected that it was designed out here, it always felt as if it was a east coast-styled building transplanted over here
  • A New York Times profile of surrealist Alejandro Jodorowsky.
  • Nick McCabe talks about his favorite albums.
  • 360 degree view of the Milky Way as seen via the Spitzer Space Telescope.
  • The Next America – The America of the near future will look nothing like the America of the recent past. Everyone who makes a living from futurism needs to get hip to what the demographic landscape is going to look like.
