Thursday's a good enough night to get lost within, says the magically lo-fi, studiously arcane and symbol-laden announcement for the show at Sister (407 Central NW) on May 4. That's when L.A. Witch—a trio that proclaims its affinity for and parallels to another, darker time on the Left Coast—will be headlining a show that also includes action from Phoenix-based pop rockers Pro Teens. Additionally, some of this town's most awesome local rock acts will be providing support. While L.A. Witch invokes the heady combination of sacred and profane cultural mojo that came out of late 1960s Los Angeles, their music is not nearly as retro as their promotional materials imply, but rather a combination of languorous folk-rock conceits, shoe-gaze style vocals and haunting harmonies following plangent guitar-playing fantasias. Check out songs like “Heart of Darkness” or “Get Lost” for the details, you devils. I'm not sure how they ended up on tour with Pro Teens. Although both share a love of the lo-fi as well as a round and reverb-soaked guitar prominence that alludes to the world of dreams, they're otherwise very divergent. Locals Train Conductor (Will Byrne, James Sturgis and Andy Ward) make searching, swarthy and sumptuous psych rock while Tear Pressure, who opens, have taken Burque by storm with their no-nonsense no wave niceties. Taking this 21+ trip to the land of floating flowers in the vibrating vacuum of psychedelic experience only costs a Lincoln and begins at 9pm. If you ever come down you'll want to tell all your friends how much it rocked and how they ought to try it too.
