The Shivas

Show Up!

The Shivas

Psychedelic transformer

If you’re looking for a by-the-numbers revival psych band wearing paisley shirts and Cuban heels, don’t bother with The Shivas. If, however, you prefer a faithful ’60s sound taken to the next level, look no further. The Shivas is what you seek. Like the Hindu deity for which the band is named, this group is the Destroyer. That is, destruction in its highest form: transformation.

To the Core

The Black Apples

With elements of surf, soul and garage, The Black Apples has the ability to bring that feel to the fore in a creative way—unlike retro psych bands that merely riff on “Psychotic Reaction” or “Dirty Water” over and over.

Free Vivian Girls track

All-girl three-piece Brooklyn garage group Vivian Girls will release a third album in April. Get a preview of Share The Joy by downloading “I Heard You Say” here.

As a side note, the girls will be playing the Bruise Cruise—a “three-day rock and roll vacation”—which sails to the Bahamas in late February. My sister will be in attendance (some friends of hers/ours are performing), so expect dispatches from the high seas.

Happy hour with King Louie

Crazed New Orleans garage rock musician King Louie will be performing this evening at the Blackbird Buvette. In lieu of describing his act, here’s a profane lo-fi video that sums it up. The show lasts from 6 to 9 p.m., during which time draft Abitas (Luzianna beer) will be on special for $2. Karaoke follows. Geaux Monday.

Could this band be more popular than Jesus?

Think (Really) Big

The Safes aims for nothing less than everything

Professional success is a matter of consequence to anyone who takes his or her job seriously, and Frankie O'Malley is no exception. He wants his band, The Safes, to make it big. What comparable level of success is he ultimately working toward? “Oh, for me, The Beatles,” says the guitarist, using the faintest of pauses between question and answer. “I want to be the biggest band ever.” O'Malley makes his aspirations sound a bit more general: “I believe wholeheartedly that we can cross over into the mainstream. Without a doubt.”

The Willowz

The importance of going backwards

Injuring his hand might have been just what Richie James Follin's band needed.
