Peaking Lights

Those who were unable to get tickets for the sold out Woodsist Festival in Big Sur this weekend are in luck. Festival favorites Peaking Lights and Woods are co-headlining a Friday night show at the Great American Music Hall on August 3rd with support from California’s Wet Illustrated.

Peaking Lights are Indra Dunis and Aaron Coyes, a husband and wife duo who met each other while living in San Francisco. Splitting ways with the psychedelic drone group Rahdunes, the duo moved to Madison, Wisconsin where they formed their current lo-fi psych dub project. The band received significant recognition after releasing their second full-length, 936, on Not Not Fun last year, following up with this year’s Lucifer on Mexican Summer. With a smooth psychedelic buzz carried by homemade synthesizers, spacey female vocals, and sunny dub beats, the band announced through Facebook that this will be their last tour “for a very very long long time,” so don’t miss it.

Brooklyn’s Woods are a force of psychedelic folk-rock not to be overlooked. Showing no signs of slowing down, Woods is scheduled to release their latest album Bend Beyond this fall, coinciding with an extensive tour. Corvette City’s Wet Illustrated will be opening the show with its boogie-down brand of dub-rock. It all goes down on August 3rd at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.
