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!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.
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...
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.
While the Mastodon-covering Feist, who recently played Coachella, is holding it down in Marfa tonight (4/25), her tour-mate and fellow Arts & Crafts-signed Canadians Timber Timbre will headline their own Austin show at Lamberts with Jesse Woods. Tickets are available.
Feist & TT reunite on Thursday for a sold out show at Stubb's, but not for long. From there Feist heads to New Orleans for Jazz Fest while TT plays shows in San Antonio and Denton with The Meat Puppets who then visit Austin to play Austin Psych Fest at Emo's East with Brian Jonestown Massacre on Sunday (tickets still available). Feist & TT then meet up again in Indiana.
