The psych scene in Dirt City seems to drift in and out of focus, momentarily coming into being in bars in Burque before dissipating back into an elusive yet alluring vapor floating through any number of house shows or alternative venues around this desert town. Much like the disorienting yet ultimately transformative substances alluded to, celebrated and symbolized by the music of this mostly underground movement, this elusive subculture is rewarding if you give it time and an ear. Members of formerly local but now El Lay/Portlandia-based psych band YOU, which features wunderkind Eric Lisausky, will reunite to play a show at Sister (407 Central NW)—their first Burque gig in two years—on Saturday, July 29. They’ll be celebrating the release of their latest album with fellow psychedelic rockers and Dirt City denizens Sun Dog and SHREWD. Though Sun Dog often displays more than a passive willingness to emulate the sounds and strategies of mid-century American left-coast psychedelia, their informed instrumentalism, particularly the guitar and keyboard arrangements, make up for their def but derivative tendencies. I haven’t heard SHREWD yet, but I’m guessing that they rock ass in a dangerously dreamlike way, too. So, Lincoln in hand (it’s only $5 for this rager!) “turn off your mind, relax and float downstream” at this 21+ gig when it rolls out at 8pm.
