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

“NiX Comics Quarterly,” that is
I met “NiX” publisher and Columbus, Ohio, resident Ken Eppstein after getting an update from his page on garagepunk.com. Eppstein is a member of the GaragePunk Podcast Network, an assemblage of dozens of rock and roll shows spanning psychedelia, punk, soul, surf and lo-fi. He was soliciting support for the first issue of his comic by selling vinyl leftovers from his shuttered store, Evil Empire Records. When I hear about a guy selling records to fund—of all things—the publishing of a comic book, I pay attention.

Musician disappears in the desert; 35 years later his masterpiece is reissued
Jim Sullivan was an American musician who in 1975 left his wife and son on the West Coast, striking out for Nashville to find success. He didn’t make it there, though—his car was found abandoned and motel room unused outside of Santa Rosa, N.M. In ‘69 Sullivan had released U.F.O., an album backed by the acclaimed Wrecking Crew—session musicians employed by Phil Spector on numerous hit songs. Sullivan and his psych-folk-rock masterpiece went mostly unnoticed until late last year when crate-diggin’ reissue label Light In The Attic rereleased U.F.O. NPR’s “All Things Considered” did a story on the album—listen here. Find out more about Sullivan, listen to audio samples or buy the record here.

Formed in the San Fernando Valley last year by three friends (including Queens of the Stone Age bass player Michael Shuman), Mini Mansions is part progressive, part psychedelic, part gothic, part cinematic. The trio—comprised of a cocktail drum kit, piano and bass—creates spacious tracks bathed in enough pop melody to make them eerily danceable. The band performs at The Underground—located beneath Evangelo's Cocktail Lounge (200 W. San Francisco)—in Santa Fe tonight. The show starts at 8 p.m. and admission is $5.
Stand-Up Comedy Thursday at The Stage @ Santa Ana Star
Featuring three of the country’s best stand-up comedians: Jose Sarduy, Jessica Michelle Singleton and Wolfman.
