Maybe you're being too strict with the "psych" label?
It's kind of a misleading label in general. Bands like Ty Segall, that are definitely garage bands, use a "psychedelic" vocal effect and suddenly they're in the big pool of psych bands. It's a term that's used pretty widely, and is often misused (just like shoegaze is, constantly). But hey, what can you do.
8/21 - The Zombies - Santa Monica Pier
8/22 - Slint - El Rey (?)
8/23-24 - FYF Fest - Exposition Park
8/28 - Ty Segall - Echo
8/31 - Sleep - Troubadour (?)
