Published May 12, 2014Psych fans, take note: next month, three Western Canadian bands will be linking up for a jaunt around Alberta and British Columbia dubbed the "See 2 Sky Western Psych Revue."
The bill features Edmonton acts the Lad Mags and Betrayers, plus Victoria's the Backhomes. In addition to playing shows in their home cities, they will stop by Calgary (for Sled Island), Vancouver and Nanaimo.
An announcement promises that the tour will be a "mind-altering antidote for the summertime blues" featuring "elements of 1960s caveman-rock, drugged-out drone, and girl-group harmonies."
In addition to the three core bands, the Vancouver and Nanaimo stops will feature Calgary-bred/Victoria-based drone-pop act Scars & Scarves. See the schedule below.
