Tip-Top psych band the Pink Mountaintops at Low Spirits TONIGHT!

By Geoffrey Plant [ Tue May 6 2014 2:42 PM ]

The weirder and, in this writer's opinion, the more interesting of Stephen McBean's two mountain-named bands (the other being Black Mountain) the Pink Mountaintops is playing Low Spirits tonight. No self-respecting lover of drug music will miss this. My friend Pierre LaFarge turned me on to this Vancouver-based bunch of weirdoes a week or so ago and there's been nothing else on my speakers since. Can't wait for the sun to set so we can all see the Pink Mountaintops, who are touring in support of their new album Get Back. Did I mention the show is only TEN BUCKS!? C'mon!

Local and soon-to-be-no-more mysterions the Elevator Boys and psych-practitioners YOU open.
