Black Lips / Zombies / Black Angels / Quilt @ Austin Psych Fest 5/2/2014
Boston's Quilt played early on Elevation, and not a ripple in the water came from their laid-back soft psych. They would be infuriating to see in a club on a Saturday night, but against the scenic backdrop of Carson Creek, they were appropriately pleasant. If one's learned anything from SXSW, going hard during the day can sometimes kill the momentum, and Quilt were a mid-afternoon reminder that there was a whole day - a whole weekend too! - ahead of them. - [Austin 360]Austin Psych Fest returned to Carson Creek Ranch for the 2014 edition edition got off to a hazy start last Friday (5/2) with sets from Black Angels, Black Lips, Quilt, Zombies, Graveyard, Fresh & Onlys, Dandy Warhols and many more. Pictures from their sets, and more, are in this post.
Pics from Liars' headlining set are up over at BrooklynVegan. We'll have pics from Saturday and Sunday up soon. Meanwhile, more pics from APF day 1 below...

Jack McFadden, a onetime Brooklynite who moved to Austin and currently works as a talent buyer at Emo's, gave us a list of his favorite music from 2012 including top 10 albums and a Spotify playlist of his favorite songs. Check it out below.
For those counting at home, that is three talent buyers (the people who book bands into clubs) that have revealed their hand to us, including NYC's Johnny Beach and Chaos in Tejas honcho Timmy Hefner.

Bill Doss of Olivia Tremor Control shows his approval @ Psych Fest - 4/28/2012
Like on Friday and Sunday (pics on the way), I didn't catch everyone at Austin Psych Fest on Saturday, though like Jeff Mangum (he was in the audience) who played the Moody Theater on Sunday, I did catch Olivia Tremor Control in addition to The Black Lips. I also saw all the other bands you see pictured 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.
