Levitation Weekend

By: Laurie Gallardo

Welcome to this celebration of music inspired by sounds within the psych vein and beyond. LEVITATION has two more days of assorted badassery happening in the Red River District and East Austin. Your Austin Music Minute maven has a few picks for your wanderings about the festival, including:

-A few early sets this afternoon by Acid King and The Well at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St. (music starts at 2 p.m.); Allah Las and White Fence at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St. (2 p.m.); and AMM fave Chelsea Wolfe and Ionna Gika at Central Presbyterian Church, 200 E. 8th St. (music begins at 4 p.m.).

Tonight features LEVITATION founders The Black Angels sharing a bill with John Cale at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater, 801 Red River; Blushing, Tan Cologne and Single Lash at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River; and Flipper with David Yow at Hotel Vegas, 1501 E. 6th St.

Tomorrow includes Dinosaur Jr. and Kurt Vile at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater; AMM fave Dallas Acid and Black Moth Super Rainbow at the Mohawk, 912 Red River; and a free Creek Show at Waterloo Greenway (1111 Red River) with another AMM favorite, Annabelle Chairlegs at 8 p.m. And, as featured on today’s AMM, much love for A Place To Bury Strangers, who have a Sunday night performance at Barracuda, with Christian Bland & The Revelators, and Ringo Deathstarr.

These are but a few selections for your LEVITATION weekend. Visit the website for a complete schedule. So recommended.
