The Zombies

In a time when the sounds of the late '60s are highly influential on modern day indie rock, it's great to see many of those classic bands coming back for tours to give their fans who were too young or not even born yet a chance to see them. The Zombies are one of those bands, and I got the chance to see them in NYC back in 2011, which was great, but a part of me always wished they'd actually tour with one of the newer bands they influenced. Well, that's finally happening, because it was just announced that Elephant Stone will be heading out as a support act with The Zombies for a few dates this March. The US dates that the two bands are playing together are all in Texas, and they include the Austin Psych Fest SXSW showcase on March 16 at Brazos Hall. The other two TX dates happen on March 13 at Kessler Theatre in Dallas and March 17 at Fitzgerald's in Houston.

While The Zombies are in Austin, they'll be playing other SXSW shows, including one of the just-mentioned Waterloo Records free day parties. They play the one on March 16 with Ra Ra Riot, Indians, Mikal Cronin, Dawes, Fidlar, and Civil Twilight. Zombies go on at noon.

These shows all happen before Elephant Stone heads out on tour with The Black Angels and Allah-Lahs (Elephant Stone frontman Rishi Dhir has played sitar in Black Angels) and that tour brings all three bands to Austin at the end of April for Austin Psych Fest. Elephant Stone also have dates in Dallas (2/24) and Denton (2/24) before Psych Fest.

A list of all dates, a stream of Elephant Stone's new album, and a classic Zombies track stream below...

Elephant 6

Those heading to Psych Fest tonight (4/28) should brush up on your Elephant 6 (whose website has been hacked, so don't go there) family spotting skills because with Olivia Tremor Control playing an 11:30pm set, one day before Scott Spillane of The Gerbils and Andrew Reiger and Laura Carter of Elf Power open for Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel at Moody Theater. Jeff, who just played Coachella, also has nothing on his schedule tonight (though we have no idea if he's actually in town a day early and aren't trying to start rumors or anything).

All JM and OLTC dates are listed below...

Black Lips at Coachella (more by David Andrako)
Black Lips

Austin Psych Fest is finally here and like any festival with a large number of bands, it's not without its casualties:

Unfortunately the Intelligence had to cancel their tour, and will no longer be playing the festival. They will have a new album out in 2012, look out for it!

Due to a situation out of the band and festival's control, ... And You Will Know Us By The Trail of The Dead will no longer be able to perform their set at Austin Psych Fest. Our best wishes to the Trail of The Dead and hopefully we'll have them back for 2013, stay tuned...

While those cancellations are a bummer, the festival has since added names like Thee Oh Sees, Meat Puppets, and many more to their venerable roster. Check out the full schedule below, and order your tickets or weekend passes.

Austin Psych Fest officially kicks off on Friday (4/27) but had its first event, a screening, on Monday (4/23) and meanwhile has been hosting some pre-parties which continue tonight (4/26) with Indian Jewelry, Christian Bland and The Revelators, The Wolf, Slow Motion Rider, Cerise, Chief Nowhere, and Rishi at Red 7. Entry is free with your ASF week pass or $15 at the door.

Full schedule of Austin Psych Fest events is below.

Feist & TT reunite on Thursday for a sold out show at Stubb's, but not for long.

Austin Psych Fest

We knew the dates (April 27th - 29th), but now The Reverberation Appreciation Society and The Black Angels have released the initial lineup poster for the 5th annual Austin Psych Fest and it looks aswesome as usual. As mentioned on BrooklynVegan, this year's fest will take place at Austin's two newest big venues, Emo's East and Beauty Ballroom right next door.

Emo's East is now the only Emo's since their Red River location closed on 12/30, and the Beauty Ballroom is (hopefully) having their rescheduled Grand Opening on January 27th (with Theophilus London and Treasure Fingers) and continuing on January 28th.

APF will feature around 60 bands over the three day, two venue event. About 40 are included in the poster above (and listed below), with another 20 or so to be announced in March. Announced bands include the Black Angels (who played Emo's East on New Year's Eve), the Black Lips, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Dead Meadow, Olivia Tremor Control, Wooden Shijps, and many more. Weekend passes go on sale this Saturday (January 21st) at 12pm CST at austinpsychfest.com.
