Psychomagic + Santoros Nov 22nd @ Ampersand
PSYCHOMAGIC from Portland,Oregon released their debut cassette on L.A.’s Lolipop Records this year. Cheeky, unpredictable, and charming, Psychomagic sounds like one an old Nuggets bands from the 1960’s. Songs like “I’m a Freak” and the 43-second “I Don’t Wanna Hold Your Hand” are a burst of adolescent energy.
The untamed seven-piece, SANTOROS, have an undeniable presence and maintain the ability to make the whole room get up and party. With their psychedelic garage sound, Santoros “match honking harmonica and top-volume bellowing with jittery D. Boon-style guitar and cascades of organ to tell cracked-up stories about life on the night side of the city. “ – L.A. Weekly.
CRAZY BAG LADY, one of Savannah’s finest punk-rock bands, have signed on with Kylesa’s record label, Retrofuturist, and are taking the music scene by storm. With a live set that is just as pleasing as unpredictable, lead singer Josh Sterno demands the audience’s attention, and sometimes participation for an always-memorable experience. Don’t be surprised if you find him hanging from a rafter or strangling himself with his mic cable.
