The holiday season is officially upon us, so there’s a good chance you’re looking for an excuse to temper the usual rounds of Christmas movies and family time with some live music. And nothing is a better antidote for holiday cheer than mind-melting psychedelic rock.
Drag City artists Six Organs of Admittance and Blues Control in the middle of a quick Midwestern tour together, forming a kind of weirdo experimental dream team. Six Organs, hot off of the new album Ascent, has gotten harder-edged and electrically progressive as of late. Similarly, Blues Control has boiled their woolly reaching sound to a hard Krautrock sheen on their recent full-length, Valley Tangents. All this is leading up to a show that, beyond simply showcasing two of the most interesting psychedelic bands happening today, will put them on display at perhaps their most aggressive and snub-nosed moment.
Trade in the eggnog for some MOTR burgers and beer for one night and check this show out – it’s rare to get so much amplified freak out in one show. The fruitcake and Tim Allen movies will be waiting for you at home.
At MOTR Pub this Thursday December 6th.
