Montreal Psych Fest 2013 at l’Escogriffe Bar Spectacle w/ Saffrons, Pet Sun, A Devil’s Din, Octaves and Eagles.
About – ‘Psych Fest Mtl is dedicated to fostering and promoting Montreal’s budding psychedelic music and art scenes. We believe that psychedelic music (and it’s cousins; shoegaze, garage, and drone) is not just a throwback, but a continuous thread in popular music.’
The weekend of October 10-13th 2013, Montreal Psych Fest was held in various venues, throughout the city at La Lumiere du Mile, l’Escogriffe Bar Spectacle, Sound Central, Le Cagibi and including the festival’s fundraising events/pre-fests at Barfly.
On the air 1st of October, Montreal Psych Fest hosted CKUT 90.3 fm Montreal Sessions with live performance by Jack Thomas and tunes from the festival’s line-up. For the month of October, every Tuesday 3-5pm, Psych Fest’s Dave Tasha John will be curating the radio show.
October 11th, 2013 at l’Escogriffe Bar Spectacle;
The story – Invited by friends John Lanthier and Dwight Berg of Guitart.ca, connected through artists/musicians, my curiosity opened for musicians performing current psych music. Yesterday’s influential music, brought forth into our own, it is definitely here! Reading all their promos, you certainly got the feel! ‘Pull out your bell-bottoms, let your hair hang out and come on out to a grooved out weekend filled with magical energy and sounds to make you melt! Pleasure to meet Rick Fleischmann from Toronto and Thea, one of many volunteers to the events. Approached the tech guys at l’Esco, the venue carries for music genres best in punk rock, indie electro & new wave. We were able to enjoy the experience the fest during two live performances from both bands, Saffrons and A Devil’s Din. The event filled up L’Esco which featured 4 groups of artists;
