Lansing-Dreiden / Weyes Blood at Mexican Summer Five, 2013
Mexican Summer threw the two-day Mexican Summer Five fest in Red Hook last year to celebrate their half decade of existence. This year, they'll be doing it again, albeit on a slightly smaller scale with two back-to-back shows at Williamsburg venues. On October 15 at Glasslands its Jorge Elbrecht's Lansing-Dreiden, who have only played a handful of live shows ever. (Jorge is also in other bands like Violens and the new Coral Cross.) Also notable is the first US show by Chilean psych rock outfit La Hell Gang, whose new album Thru Me Again just came out on the label. (Stream a few tracks below.) Arp and new Mexican Summer signee Jefre Cantu-Ledesma round out the bill.
Then on October 16 at Baby's All Right, Connan Mockasin headlines a line-up that also includes Boston's Quilt and Weyes Blood (whose new album will be out the week after this show). The Baby's show is also a benefit for the Shoe4Africa charity which "facilitates health, social and educational programming within East African communities."
Tickets for both shows are on sale now. Flyers for both nights, plus (very) belated sets of pics of Lansing-Dreiden and Weyes Blood from Mexican Summer Five and La Hell Gang streams, below...
