To celebrate the release of The UFO Club / Night Beats split 10 inch and a great year, The Reverberation Appreciation Society is throwing a summer party with Sailor Jerry on Friday, August 12th at The Mohawk. For the calendar-phobic, that's tomorrow night. The bill is rocktastic, featuring performances by Dum Dum Girls (playing a special show as a guitar duo), Mark Sultan / BBQ (from The King Kahn and BBQ Show), our friends the Night Beats, the premiere performance of The UFO Club (featuring Christian Bland of The Black Angels), and Shapes Have Fangs. Super solid.
Advance tickets are available for $13 on mohawk.frontgatetickets.com and austinpsychfest.com or packaged with the high quality digital album (that I told you about) for $18 on austinpsychfest.com. Get more event details on Do512 and Facebook.
While we're on the subject, here's a tasty nugget from the Night Beats' debut album. It's available for consumption right now via Trouble in Mind Records:
"Any number of bands cite 60’s Texas psych as an influence, but rarely does a group actually capture what made those bands special. Following their debut EP also on Trouble In Mind, The Night Beats have expanded on the bedroom immediacy of their first recordings to create an LP that perfectly captures and modernizes the hallucinogenic and exhilaratingly demonic aura of bands like The 13th Floor Elevators and Golden Dawn. With blazing guitar work and a razor sharp rhythm section Danny Lee Blackwell and company mutate conventional chords & progressions into a mind-blowing sonic sprawl."
