Under a big, wide, weird umbrella resides a new generation of “psychedelic” bands to blow your little mind. Though a lot of tonight's Psych Fest acts are only somewhat connected to that genre's more overtly trippy sound and style, all are guaranteed to warp your soul in universe-shape-changing ways. The lineup includes Sub Pop's Rose Windows and their massive mélange of Sabbath rifferini, American folk-roots rock, Indian/Persian and Eastern European music; L.A.'s own Jeffertitti's Nile, thrashing hallucinogenically in head-skewing ways; Japan's Kikagaku Moyo; Argentina's Seis Cuerdas; and a special performance by Gamelan X, who reinterpret from a West Coast perspective the music of Bali in flowering walls of tuned percussion. Also DJs Matt Correia and Sister Calypso, an art gallery, live video art and, yes, giant puppets.
