Spindrift - 8/31 - Magic Stick (with Oblisk)
Spindrift blend style and sludge, the captivating grace and sleek sun-fried goth mystique of their penchant for gritty and surreal late 60's Westerns has carried over to become a strong influence upon their sound - thus being dubbed "Spaghettie Western Psychedelia." This is, at least, in its 'Western' form, as the band was started by singer/songwriter and actor Kirpatrick Thomas on the east coast (before a fateful stint in the Brian Jonestown Massacre shifted him to California).
Last year, the Kirkpatrick saw the release of his co-produced effort (with filmmaker Mike Bruce), "The Legend of God's Gun," inspired by the band's 2003 album, made in the style of the avant-garde Westerns pulsing through their booming, fuzzy psychedelic rock.
To paint you a picture of what you're in for (on August 31, at the Magic Stick) - this band's circle, either by friend, tour-mate or by label mate, includes A Place To Bury Strangers, The Warlocks, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Last year's "The West" featured a tune titled "Excrete from the Collective Subconscous."
On Monday, they're joined by local psyche/shoegaze quartet Oblisk.
