Performers at this Event
Roky Erickson
Roky Erickson Remove performer from this event
Like Syd Barrett, a common point of reference, Roky Erickson rose to cult-hero status as much for his music as for his tragic personal life; in light of his legendary bouts with madness and mythic drug abuse, the influence exerted by his garage-bred psychedelia was often lost in the shuffle....
The Moving Sidewalks
The Moving Sidewalks Remove performer from this event
Before forming ZZ Top, Billy Gibbons was the lead guitarist of this Houston, TX, group, which released one album and a few singles in the late '60s. Their single "99th Floor" became one of the most famous vintage garage 45s after its inclusion on Pebbles, Vol....
Silver Apples
Silver Apples Remove performer from this event
The New York City-based duo the Silver Apples were one of the very first bands to make rock music almost entirely out of electronic instruments. Basing much of their sound around the repetitive lines generated by the Simeon, a homemade synthesizer constructed by the band member of the same name, the Apples' music was a pulsing blur of analog oscillations and straight rock drumming....
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Remove performer from this event
Dark psychedelic rockers from the Bay Area, whose music echoes the Velvet Underground and textured British indie pop. ~ Rovi
Boris
Boris Remove performer from this event
Japanese loud/heavy experimental trio Boris have been making an eclectic racket since the early 1990s. Named after a song by American sludge-metal trio the Melvins, Boris carry on that band's proud tradition of crafting intelligent, slow-motion sonic slugfests....
The Raveonettes
The Raveonettes Remove performer from this event
Combining the noisy swells of the Jesus and Mary Chain with melodic elements of '50s rock & roll, the Raveonettes formed in Copenhagen during the early 2000s. Guitarist Sune Rose Wagner had tried assembling a band for several years, traveling between New York City, Las Vegas, Hollywood, and an island outside of Seattle in his search for like-minded musicians....
Black Mountain
Black Mountain Remove performer from this event
Vancouver indie band that combines doomy riffage with risky experimentation. ~ Rovi
Deerhunter
Deerhunter Remove performer from this event
Deerhunter is an experimental noise rock band from Atlanta, fronted by the compellingly odd singer Bradford Cox. Cox's vocal style blends vocal experimentation along the lines of Meredith Monk or Yoko Ono with a more direct and punky howl inspired by the Fall's Mark E....
The Black Angels
The Black Angels Remove performer from this event
Shoe-gazer swirliness and old-fashioned psychedelia meet in this Texas-based band's music. ~ Rovi
The Besnard Lakes
The Besnard Lakes Remove performer from this event
The Besnard Lakes raise immediate comparisons to the Arcade Fire, but those are primarily due to accidents of geography and band chemistry: like the Arcade Fire, the Besnard Lakes are from Montreal and led by a married couple....
No Joy
No Joy Remove performer from this event
The doomy shoegaze band No Joy began in November 2009, when guitarist/vocalist Jasmine White-Glutz was living in Los Angeles and guitarist/vocalist Laura Lloyd was living in Montreal. The pair wrote songs as long-distance collaborators until White-Glutz moved to Montreal and they could play shows together....
Suuns
Suuns Remove performer from this event
Blending aspects of dark electro, dissonant art rock, and plodding indie rock, Suuns, formerly named Zeroes, utilize minimalism in their wide-open (and often paranoid) sound. After their first EP, which was also titled Zeroes, they recorded a full-length with the Besnard Lakes' Jace Lasek at Breakglass Studios in their home city of Montreal....
