With festival season still in motion for many, it’s time to let you know what’s happening with LIVERPOOL INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF PSYCHEDELIA (a.k.a. LIVERPOOL PSYCH FEST or PZYK). This world-class event (and arguably the most significant Psych Fest on the planet today) is a meeting of minds and a meeting of nations – though various psychedelia attractions/events and especially MUSIC. This year’s headliners include THE BLACK ANGELS and LOOP – the program is jam-packed with goodness, including from Lætitia Sadier, A Place To Bury Strangers, The KVB, The Telescopes, Songhoy Blues and more.
California’s Castle Face Records, one of the world’s leading off-kilter psych music imprints, present their showcase ‘Irregular Orbits’, involving five bands from their roster – Once & Future Band, Male Gaze, Magnetix, Duds, Exit Group (Useless Eaters side project). All of this is happening on Sept. 22-3 with plenty of events leading up to the show. Real Estate’s Matt Mondanile bring his Ducktails to Liverpool for the PZYK opening party.
Running with the motto “THIS FESTIVAL WILL DESTROY YOU”, the organizers qualify “unless it destroys us first”. Prepare for the PZYK of your life… but if you can’t be there, California’s KFJC 89.7FM will be broadcasting the festival live from the four festival stages, as well as interviews, online via KFJC.org and on FM in the San Francisco Bay area.
