TOMORROW NIGHT, garage-rockin’ Brooklynites THE MAD DOCTORS take over Bourbon & Branch in Philadelphia along with New Jersey psych-outs WREATHS, with support from Philly-based psych crew JACKIE PAPER and psychotic psychedelic-punks SEISMIC THRUST. You can RSVP to this remarkable event via Facebook, beginning at 9pm tomorrow night for just $8. Do it now!
Get yourself ready by listening to “Slug Shake Armageddon,” a preview of the Mad Doctor’s forthcoming debut LP Snake Oil Superscience (released by King Pizza Records) right below:
Bourbon & Branch, Philadelphia’s newest venue space, was taken over on Saturday night by the very first Styrofoam Drone Showcase. Burnt Ones and Raw McCartney came into town from San Francisco and Indianapolis respectively, while Shape Breaker and Jackie Paper provided the hometown entertainment. Burnt Ones are on the road for their upcoming LP on Castle Face Records, an album that should be available for mail order any day now.
Take a look below for a video apiece from each band that played on Saturday. If that’s not enough, you can find more videos from the show right here (keep checking back!)
Shape Breaker – “Spellbound”
Shape Breaker closed their set with the track from their recent split 7″ on Gary Records, “Spellbound.” Psychedelic and punk vibes are prominent in their sound, more of which you can listen to right here.
Raw McCartney – “Born to Ride”
“Born to Ride” is a track from Raw McCartney’s recent Introducing cassette on Chicago’s Tripp Tapes. It’s loaded with the most fuzz as these guys stop at nothing to melt your face off.
Jackie Paper wasted no time with their take on folk-inspired psych rock. Fluttery flutes and grainy psych washes dominated their set, building their songs up into a monumental affair.
Burnt Ones brought their own synth-driven stoner pop, showcasing a bit from their upcoming LP on Castle Face titled Gift. It’s officially released on March 25th by the label, so keep your eyes peeled for that in the Castle Face Records store.
