Portable Shrines, an informal collective of Seattle psych lovers dedicated to raising awareness of “mind-manifesting” phenomena in their area (and blogging about it, of course), have announced an exciting roster of bands for their new two-day Escalator Fest, which will premiere at the Lo-Fi Performance Gallery and the Vera Project later this month. Expect a projection-lit showcase of “the new psychedelia” in its most far-flung (though primarily West Coast) forms, from noise to folk to denatured ’80s pop memories and back again. Line-up and details below.
Saturday, September 26, 2009 @ The Vera Project all ages, doors at 5
pm, show at 6 pm $15
Prince Rama of Ayodhya
Geist & the Sacred Ensemble
Story of Rats
A limited offer of 50 advance passes for both nights are available on the ESCALATOR festival website through PayPal.
