What To Expect When You Are Expecting Austin Psych Fest: Friday Picks!
Today is the first day of the 6th annual Austin Psych Fest.
Here’s a look at some of the bands who’ll be playing the festival TONIGHT.
VIETNAM: 6 p.m. Friday, ELEVATION AMPHITHEATRE
I feel in love with the band Vietman after a Waterloo in-store show.
For a long time, I drove around with the Vietnam’s 2007 self-titled CD on repeat in my car. (My favorite off the album was Priest, Poet & the Pig.) At one point I walked past the band during a photo shoot at South By Southwest, and I was tempted to tell them that I’d been obsessively listening.
After that I kept seeing them everywhere during the festival, but I was too shy to say anything! Clearly I am a terrible stalker.
SUUNS: Friday, 7:30, LEVITATION TENT
On the advice of a friend, I saw Suuns play at SXSW 2013. They were amazing.
(This video is super-trippy, y’all!)
Then, there are the female centric bands that I’ve never seen, but am totally looking forward to seeing tonight!
WARPAINT: Friday, 8:30 REVERBERATION STAGE
RAVONETTES: Friday, 10:00 REVERBERATION STAGE
Should be a good time, y’all!
