Sunburned Hand Of The Man

The 1st Annual Memory Burn Psych Fest is a one night affair on Saturday, May 29th, 2010 @ Glasslands in Brooklyn, NY. Inspired by such psych-minded festivals over the past few years such as the Frisco Freakout in SF, Memory Burn gathers a stylistic smattering of local heady, heavy hitters in New York's psych scene for an evening of tripped-out fun...
The inaugural Memory Burn Psych Fest is a doozy, featuring performances from Revival Times, Weird Owl, Future Hunter, The Black Hollies, White Hills, Hopewell, Golden Triangle, Psychic Ills, and Sunburned Hand of the Man. The show kicks off at 7PM and $12 gets you in the door.

Another notable psych-related event in the near future includes The Entrance Band, who will team up with The Growlers at Mercury Lounge for a show on June 12th. Tickets are on sale. The Entrance Band play Bonnaroo just two days prior.

Sunburned Hand of The Man recently contributed to a tribute LP for the fallen Jack Rose, who passed away late last year. The album, entitled Honest Strings: A Tribute To The Life And Work Of Jack Rose, is out now via Fina Music and also features contributions from Bardo Pond, MV & EE, No Neck Blues Band, Six Organs of Admittance, Spectre Folk, and many many other notables. All proceeds from the sale of the record go to the estate of Jack Rose. Pick up that record, and read more about it at the label's site.

Pretty sick lineup, but Austin Psych Fest after 3 years is doing it a tad better.

The Jack Rose tribute is amazing, both in quality and value.

LOVE this lineup. We've been trying to get the Ills down for 3 years now, and we'll try again for 2011.

The Black Hollies have such a killer sound, and there are 2 other bands we invited for APF3 here too... awesome shit folks!

If you don't see this you're depriving yourself of good times.

Actually, I think a lot of these bands are great: Hopewell, Weird Owl, White Hills. But
the bands that are getting most of the attention on this bill are the weaker ones.
And perhaps coincidentally, the least "psych" of them all.

Oh man, Golden Triangle? Really? Incredibly awful.

Some will argue that playing SoundFix is not the ideal venue, but they actually do a great job of hosting live bands.

To the ladies (and gentlemen?) of Golden Triangle, time to commit to the 40 hour week. Alas, playing the tambourine is a privilege, not a right. It's so very easy to do it wrong. You've confirmed that.
