Returning for the first time since 2014 is LA band MEATBODIES. Born and raised in Los Angeles, MEATBODIES are heavy, groovy, psychedelic and headbanging fun for the whole family. Some savvy rockers might recognize leader CHAD UBOVICH from MIKAL CRONIN's touring band and TY SEGALL's heavy rock trio FUZZ, but here his maniacal shredding and psych-pop songwriting take center stage. The always-poetic Noisey says "Every person involved in this deserves to be high-fived until their hands chafe and bleed" while Stereogum claims "Fans of humongous power chords, shit-kicking drums, and wildly wailed melodies must listen." Alice, the follow up to the band's 2014 debut album, was released earlier this year via In The Red Records.
Describing themselves as “psychedelic punk blues,” Oklahoman rockers PSYCHOTIC REACTION are touring through the midwest all summer long. Drawing influence from classic punkers like NEW BOMB TURKS and MC5, these guys pride themselves on bringing garage and psych rock to middle-of-nowhere rural states.
Local newcomers STRANGE FOLIAGE put out a couple of demos last month and they’ll be debuting a whole lot more tunes when they make their debut here Friday. The brainchild of JOEY CANTACESSI, these guys exemplify the fuzzy garage music that the kids know and love.
