But Bay Area psych music shouldn't just be thought of as a source of nostalgia; five decades after the Summer of Love, local bands are continuing to make stellar music applying a psychedelic lens to a number of styles and sounds.

We move forward this week with Joel Gion & The Primary Colours at The Independent on Thursday, January 22.

The Love Dimension set to release ‘Create and Consume’ at The Chapel

All set and ready to release their new album, Create and Consume, The Love Dimension will be taking their psychedelic, groovy tunes to The Chapel this Thursday, September 4th for an all out party. Hitting their sixth year in existence, The Love Dimension has touched numerous genres - from folk to rock - but has always returned back to their psychedelic roots.

Brasil Two bands that were featured on our second "Best of Submissions" post are teaming up for a show at Cafe du Nord this Thursday, March 28.

Brasil has recorded [...]
