Visions of Austin Psych Fest


As many of you know, the 5th annual Austin Psych Fest took place last weekend with one of the best festival lineups in recent memory. This year’s APF featured over 50 bands from all walks of the psych genre, including Brian Jonestown Massacre, Woods, The Black Angels, The Black Lips, Meat Puppets, Olivia Tremor Control, Golden Dawn, Thee Oh Sees, Wooden Shjips, Dead Meadow and many more.

Set across two adjacent venues—with a courtyard/hippy bazaar between—attendees could easily navigate between the shows to check out at least part each band. Over the course of the weekend, there were lots of familiar names to check out and a few impressive new discoveries as well. Some personal favorites were sets by Tuareg guitarist Bombino (from the same community as the members of Tinariwen), Woods, Sun Araw, MMOSS and Quilt. All in all, the food was good, weather was perfect, and tall boys were only $4.

Below you’ll find a series of AFP videos from some of my favorite performances.
