Fuck!!!!!! SLIVER APPLES ! Ok now i am jealous
Holy shit. These are some amazing adds! There's a lot more shoegazey stuff now.
I highly recommend the following:
12/4/14 - Angel Olsen @ El Rey // 12/10/14 - Tune-Yards/Cibo Matto @ Wiltern
I cannot believe how great this lineup is for 150 dollars. Amazing.
The Besnard Lakes - Are the Dark Horse. That album shoulda been huge.
The third Os Mutantes album is similarly great. Conference of the Birds is my favorite Om, but I imagine they're playing more of the new stuff now since the sound has changed so much.

I'm considering this now if I don't catch a lot of these bands at SX. I've been listening to the Elephant Stone album this week, which I've read as a hindie-rock band. It almost reminds me of the Monkeys---very clean poppy 60s psych rock. Also checked out the Besnard Lakes Dark Horse album per Bmacks rec above. Very good, but it'll take a few more listens for me to soak it all in.
Here's a sneak peek from the last two APF schedules, lifted from my Flickr sets:
(Edited to show Sunday v. Sunday set times, Friday they started later and ended later and Saturday they started earlier and ended later)
HOWEVER, both of those were inside, so noise curfews may be different for the outdoor setting this year. But then again, with such proximity to the airport - will there even be such a thing?
Also, a certain Anton from a certain massacre band and Dead TV put the following Psych Fest mix together:
As far as getting a great beer selection, the Gingerman is nice, but Bangers has a much larger selection. As well as the Draught House pub/brewery.
What I did find out is that during "Spring festival season", Austin outdoor concert venues can only allow 85 db "broadcasts" (thru amplification) until 2AM. So that'd be my guess as to the end time.
I use to live down the street from the Draught House. Forgot all about it. Nice German lady. Always brought our own chairs to sit outside when it was packed.
Unfortunately I have to sell my two Psych Fest passes so if somebody was thinking of going and hasn't bought theirs yet, I'm selling them for the original price of 120 each. Pm me..
