Levitation: Day 2

By: Laurie Gallardo

Welcome, music freaks, to day two of LEVITATION, a celebration of music influenced by the psych realm and beyond. Touring and local artists are performing at venues along Red River and in East Austin, and as you’ll see by today’s Austin Music Minute, it’s a bit overwhelming – in the best way possible. Tonight’s shows include:

-The glorious visual spectacle and mind trip of The Flaming Lips, with Mercury Rev and ATX-based band Holy Wave at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater, 801 Red River.

-Near and dear to your AMM host’s dark little heart, David J. (Bauhaus, Love & Rockets) performs at Elysium, 705 Red River, with an awesome line-up that features Dallas-based tradgoth/punk outfit Rosegarden Funeral Party, and darkest of dark ATX artists Curse Mackey and SINE.

-Experimental psych/surf rockers Strange Lot take over Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River, with Astragal and El Lago.

-Memphis noise-punk badasses NOTS let loose at Hotel Vegas, 1501 E. 6th, sharing the bill with Hash Redactor, Aquarian Blood and Benni.

-The mighty Black Mountain (featured on today’s AMM) performs at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, along with Kikagaku Moyo and Stonefield.
