After heading south to play this weekend’s LA Psych Fest, where they’ll be topping a stacked lineup at the Bootleg Theater with the likes of Rose Windows, Kikagaku Moyo and Jeffertitti’s Nile, The Spyrals will be bringing their tripped-out tunes to The Knockout on Tuesday, May 13. Joining the band will be San Francisco’s own Union Pacific, who are still riding high on the Lolipop train since the March release of their debut EP, as well as Portland’s shoegazing outfit Is/Is. Featuring three trios, each with a distinct sonic aesthetic–the sand surf of Union Pacific, the liquid psych of Is/Is and The Spyrals’s signature rock and roll–the show is certain to be a guitar-driven evening that exhibits the dynamic nature of rock music’s poster instrument. So if you’re into that kind of thing, make your way to the Knockout next week. It’s going to get loud.
