Lotus Plaza, the project of Deerhunter guitarist Lockett Pundt, has been continuing to tour in support of his great new album, Spooky Action at a Distance. That tour came to Austin at the end of last month for Austin Psych Fest. This past Monday (5/7) it hit the Doug Fir Lounge in Portland with Wymond Miles (of Fresh & Onlys) and Frankie Broyles. Pictures and videos from that show are in this post.
The rest of Lotus Plaza's tour, which continues through late July, doesn't include any more Austin dates at the moment, but the band will be back in Texas next week for shows at Lowbrow Palace on 5/13 in El Paso and Fitzgerald's on 5/15 in Houston.

Alex Maas of The Black Angels @ Psych Fest 2012 (4/27/2012)
I arrived on Friday in time to catch Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter's project Lotus Plaza, missed Psychic Ills, but then caught everyone else until the end which meant I saw Lotus Plaza tour-mates (featuring Steve Shelly from Sonic Youth on Drums) Disappears, locals Sleep Over and Ringo Deathstarr and fest co-founders The Black Angels, as well as Dead Meadow, Sun Araw and Peaking Lights. Pictures from all of that, below...
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.
