West Coast screamers Frankie and the Witch Fingers trade on a tradition built up from the very fabric of psychedelic soul. Shot through with the same melted juke jitters that sent Doug Sahm, The 13th Floor Elevators and The Pretty Things scratching through the record needles of every child indebted to the vibrational cathedral, F&TWF is an acid bath for the soul delivered in pulsating waves via fuzz guitar. It’s an electric jolt to the endocrine system, shaking the last dregs of reluctance out of your system and inducing bouts of dance euphoria.

 

Albuquerque's own, Sun Dog, continually curiouser and curiouser-- melting the pots of genre and composition into something unique and nostalgic simultaneously.

 

Tropical Beach is another hidden psychedelicious gem hiding out in the deserts of AZ, playing the celestial sounds of the future using synthesizers from Japan.

Sunday

Well, well, well. It seems that Sunday night, Oct. 7 is “Psych Night” at every hip human’s house of hang out, Sister (407 Central Ave. SW), which means it’s a perfect opportunity for all of you who are out their sitting shiva for Marty Balin to let go of that seminal generation of acid-eating, shoe-eschewing and trippy, dancing-to-the-light-of-the-moon-whilst-mumbling-about-cacti-and-spirit-animals entities and start listening to what is happening now in the sparkly realm of the psychedelic music faction of the revolutionary army of rocanrol, Albuquerque and West Coast units. In case you are interested, that amounts to going to this concert and rocking the fuck out to a band called Frankie & the Witch Fingers. Burque’s own answer to incense and peppermints, Sun Dog is also on this plastic fantastic bill. As you may recall, the former quartet has songs like “Brain Telephone,” “Electric Seance” and mi favorito, “Owsley.” Sun Dog, meanwhile, always rocks, as is evidenced by their latest effort, parnassus. Try to pace yourself if you go to this show and by all means avoid anything remotely brown: This shit is bound to happen in living color, just like Disneyland or the Potala, y’all. 8pm • $5 • 21+.
