Man, I'm only a few songs into Internal Wrangler by Clinic and it's fucking outstanding. Line-up research is fun.
Man I would love to see Roky Erickson added to this thing. Gribbz, have you bought your ticket?
Not yet. Going to run it by my boss tonight. Should be golden.
I think Ty Segall would be a plausible add considering White Fence is playing and Psych Fest seems to always have a garage act or two.
Good to hear. They're next on my list...
EDIT* Are the Black Angels recording a new album? I saw a picture a couple of months ago of them in the studio but I haven't found any related articles...
I would really love to be able to go to this...finances are an issue though. That being said, if they were to somehow land a Raccoo-oo-oon reunion, I'd sell a fucking kidney to get there.
Unfortunately, no. I'm 90% sure I'm going to Coachella anyway, and two fests in the same month would be really hard to pull off.
It's awesome you're branching out this year, Gribbz. So many great fests in this country, I'd like to go to both this one and Moog Fest someday (especially now that ATP's jumped the shark ).
Not that it matters that much whether they're there or not, but I'll be damned if Wooden Shjips isn't the neglected stepchild of psych rock. Every single song I've ever heard of theirs is absolutely on point, they deserve so much more recognition than they get.
It wouldn't surprise me if they were added. Wooden Shjips play Psych Fest pretty often.
Also, I didn't realize that the guy from Spectrum was a founding member of Spacemen 3.
Wooden Shjips would be amazing. I just bought my ticket, I am really looking forward to this. I am hoping for the same type of ATP vibe, I realized I have little to no desire to attend big festivals anymore, so I hope Coachella doesn't get a really great lineup again.
....... If flight prices are reasonable maybe i will go. I went a local rock pysch festival up in Mt.Baldy and a blasted .I really want to do Fun Fun. Fest this year.$120 is really fucking cheap for a good festival.
GvB are having a pass giveaway.
Alright, time to go quote-crazy up in this bitch:
I was thinking the same thing. The Horrors would be a great add as well. Loved their Coachella set this past year. EDIT* Would post rock acts be unrealistic?
Most post-rock acts don't have elements that I would really call psychedelic...
If These Trees Could Talk or pg. Lost would be really awesome post rock additions.
Also, Boris doing Feedbacker would be so perfect for this fest.
8/7/16 - Sufjan Stevens @ Hollywood Bowl // 8/8/16 - Radiohead @ Shrine // 8/8/16 - Boris @ Regent
9/14/16 - Wilco @ Theatre at Ace Hotel // 9/18/16 - Kraftwerk @ Hollywood Bowl
I am assuming Boris is going to do Feedbacker or some other album that is more psych in its entirety. I know most people pan it off, but them doing Rainbow would be an amazing fit for this festival. Also, if MBV wind up on this I am gonna lose my shit
