Don't miss these headliners at the new, one-day psych-rock fest
Ty Segall & White Fence
Last year, Ty Segall teamed up with White Fence, aka Tim Presley, to release Joy, a 15-track album of bite-size, fuzzy psych-pop numbers that mostly clock in at two minutes or less. It's the pair's first album since 2012's Hair, and much like that record, Joy splits the difference between Segall's garage-rock tendencies and Presley's more shambling, day-drunk meanderings.
When Black Lips' debut came out in 2003, I can't say I would have placed bets on the Atlanta garage-punk act lasting until 2019. The band has always approached life and music with reckless abandon, experimenting with its sound at every turn, and on 2017's ragged Satan's graffiti or God's art? Black Lips stayed predictably unpredictable, bringing a full-time saxophonist into the fold.
The endlessly experimental San Franciscans in Deerhoof got their start in the mid '90s, and have consistently released new music every year or two since. In 2017, it was the politically informed Mountain Moves, which took inspiration from the 2016 election. On Halloween last year, the band released Deerhoof Plays Music of the Shining, a seven-inch that finds the band reinterpreting two pieces from the classic Kubrick film.
