The Golden West is featuring all kinds of psychedelics this month. Tonight's bill is no different, with Pontiak coming back to town with Mondo Drag and The Main St. Gospel.
Pontiak have been on fire over the last couple years, releasing four full length LPs on Thrill Jockey starting back in 2008 with Sun On Sun. The most recent, Living, hits on all the same heavy frequencies as the rest, and is one of the darkest of the bunch. Just like the others it was recorded by the band themselves, but took a bit longer with a four month recording process.
Mondo Drag harvest a sound not often brought to the table in 2010. Spacey and groovy psychedelic rock and roll that will have you recalling Hendrix, Cream, and the likes. They released a new album recently called New Rituals, which came out on Alive Records.
Tonight's show starts at 10:30 and is just six bucks.
