Greetings Friends and Freaks!
On August 22nd of 2015 you are invited to attend a Rock and Roll Ceremony at the legendary Phoenix-Powered HM157 in dreamy Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles CA.
Lolipop/Burger Records Psych Rock darlings The Electric Magpie open the Ceremony with a heroic dose of sonic mayhem on the outdoor stage. The young electric warriors will be followed by the Cosmic California sounds of GospelbeacH, the all new LA super group featuring members of Beachwood Sparks and Ryan Adams & The Cardinals.
The heady celebration of Exotic Western Psychedelia then moves to the inside stage where Dead Meadow's Jason Simon will be preaching the gospel of trance rock with his rad new band, Old Testament.
The evening then lifts into desert dream when Trans Van Santos' band of nomadic western mystics take the stage and perform their searching ritual of sound. Featuring former members of SF psych rock vets Os Beaches and Patti Smith Band, along with members of The Myrrors and Deep Ellum, TVS' sound is like "hanging out with Harry Dean Stanton, nibbling on peyote chips, and squinting in the sun." Legendary Brian Jonestown Massacre guitarist Jeffrey Davies has called TVS his favorite musical discovery of the decade so far. They are a band that keep taking improvisational psychedelic rock to higher mountain tops, ever more majestic peaks.
As if all this isn't enticing enough, San Francisco ex pat DJ Neil Martinson (SMiLE!) will be spinning the crazy vinyl, and Coachella festival 's psychedelic protectionist, Major Gape, will create the visual narrative to accompany the sonic Explosion. Wow!!!
Trans Van Santos will be playing their first headlining show in LA www.transvansantos.com
