Clumsy Concentration JAM Talk of Shamans and The Electric Magpie Play SUB/Mission TONIGHT

Did you ever find yourself pondering why there weren't enough psych bands in San Francisco? Of course you didn't, because the Bay Area is home to many psych bands, such as The Electric Magpie, who will be playing a show tonight. Playing at SUB/Mission, they will be bringing along fellow Bay Area bands, Talk of Shamans, JAM and Clumsy Concentration.

Playing first is Clumsy Concentration, a self-proclaimed "bedroom psych" project from Oakland. As what seems to be an acoustic act, they play hazy-sounding psych rock. JAM picks up the pace a bit. This San francisco-based psych band, composes instrumentals reminiscent of James Brown, and vocals that are pure, unadulterated psych rock. Performing after is Talk of Shamans, a San Francisco band hellbent on combining popgaze, psych and indie. Be sure to check out their track "Starecase", an up-tempo diddy with intricate guitar riffs that border on math rock.

And closing the night is Bay Area based band, The Electric Magpie. This band offers a blend of '60s psych rock and mod. Be sure to keep an eye out for their debut LP, Begins which will be released on Lollipop Records on April 15th. In the meantime, you can listen to a single they debuted last month called "Mourning Gloria." -Erin Dage
