I caught the London-based Japanese-born act Bo Ningen at SXSW this year. I was at the “British Music Lounge” waiting for buzz-band Temples (who are also on the Psych Fest lineup this year), when...
One of the bands I’m most excited about at Austin Psych Fest this year is The War on Drugs. Shoegazey, yet something that I can listen to endlessly on repeat! The War on Drugs...

Austin Psych Fest is this weekend, April 26-28 2013, at Carson Creek Ranch.
If you are, er, directionally challenged like me, this should strike fear into your heart. Or at least get you to add an extra hour into your festival planning!
