Additional details

The Telescopes
Hailed by NME as "the best shoegaze band ever," Creation Records superstars (and My Bloody Valentine label mates) The Telescopes return to San Francisco with a full band and as intense as ever. This is the first U.S. show by The Telescopes since Austin Psych Fest 2012.

On their only other stop in San Francisco, The Telescopes played a memorizing and unique experimental noise set. This tour will be the FIRST TIME The Telescopes play San Francisco with a full band, performing many of the Creation-era hits that paved the way for "shoegaze" and "noise pop" to exist. Don't miss these pioneers and legends.

LSD and the Search for God
San Francisco's own spacerock darlings, joined by their frequent-bandmate Ricky Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre)...this time on 12-string guitar.

"Magical pop...that could inspire one to take meds without a perscription." - Autopia Music

"LSD and the Search for God are the rightful inheritors of the more coherent side of My Bloody Valentine and the more experimental, noisy side of Luna." -Real Detroit Weekly

"Psychedelic shoegazers..." - SF Weekly

"LSD and the Search for God live up to their name with psychedelic rock reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine and Spaceman 3." - Flavorpill
