’60s psych lovers The Black Angels and an actual ’60s psych legend Roky Erickson recently kicked off a tour together that brought the fellow Austinites to NYC for a free Converse Rubber Tracks Live show at Music Hall of Williamsburg this past Tuesday (2/18). For this tour, Roky’s been playing mostly 13th Floor Elevators songs, including classics like “You’re Gonna Miss Me” and “Reverberation (Doubt).” Black Angels, meanwhile, mixed it up, giving attention to material from all of their albums, and playing a new song too. The Swollen Fox caught the Philly show two days earlier and wrote:

Despite my altered state, I remained hyper aware of every detail of sound, from the growl of Christian Bland’s guitar to the proximal fear and hallucinations found within the lyrics of Alex Maas. Drummer Stephanie Bailey kept time for the out of body experience. Her technique was particularly enthralling during “I Hear Colors (Chromasthesia),” arms waving like the conductor of a symphony, all the while sounding as though she is simultaneously operating a jackhammer and drumming upon fine china.

Pictures of the MHOW show, in all its trippy glory, including shots of Black Angels’ and Roky’s setlists (though the Black Angels one doesn’t look complete) and openers The Denzels, are in this post.
