Los Angeles’ Wizards headlined 7th Street Entry on Saturday, June 18, in support of their 9th studio album Chain (Cleopatra).
The opening of the show was that of Detroit Sisters of your sunshine vaporplaying psychic music with a video projection on the band to create an interesting visual effect.
Originally the group was called SikSik Nation and played blues-rock, but when they changed their style of music to garage/psych, they decided it was time for a name change.
The last album of Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor good damn is out now.
Minneapolis’ magic castles was next. From the onstage banter, it looks like the band joined the Warlocks tour for a few dates and finally wrapped up their tour with their comeback show at 7th Street Entry.
As you know, we already mentioned that the local psychedelic band (vocalist/guitarist Jason Edmonds, vocalist/guitarist Jeremiah Doering, bassist Paul Fuglestad, drummer Brendan McInerney) had a dedicated flautist in the band when we got them. seen for the first time in May 2016.
Wizards closed at night. The psychedelic band is led by vocalist/guitarist Bobby Hecksher. The current band includes guitarist John Christian Rees, guitarist Earl V. Miller, bassist Christopher DiPino and drummer Jason Anchondo.
The name (The Warlocks) was briefly used by both Velvet floor and the Grateful Dead, so there is a lot of history of the name and its origin. After the Warlocks’ first gig in 1998, they got a lot of comparisons to Velvet Underground and Spacemen 3…and they signed to Bomp! in October 2000.
The band found themselves moving from label to label, from Birdman Records, to Mute, to Tee Pee, to Zap Banana/Cargo. Currently, the band are stable on Cleopatra, having released their last three LPs on the label.
Wizards Chain is now available on Cleopatra Records.
