Peaking Lights Acid Test is the live disco offshoot of the very same husband and wife synth duo responsible for the dub-heavy Lucifer and 936 LPs of blog-world past. No, Peaking Lights will not be passing out cups of psychedelic Kool-Aid at the show. The “A.C.I.D.” part is just a clever anagram of their actual names, Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis. The only feeling they will be pushing this Saturday night is that of chilled-out, Balearic rave vibes, with Coyes likely performing a live solo set that will sound something like this:
That’s not all that Push the Feeling has lined up for us this weekend. It is also the record release party for Al Lover’s new beat album, Zodiak Versions. The local DJ and instrumental musician will be relocating for Austin soon, so it’s also a farewell party for him. Similarly to Peaking Lights’ early work, Al Lover’s Zodiak Versions draws influence from the colorful space between “krautrock” and “dub” genres. “This record is not based off samples,” he told SF Weekly (which recently premiered the album). “It’s not like anything else I’ve done.” Come by early to enjoy his final live set as a San Francisco resident.
