Austin Psych Fest 3

From the promoter: Austin Psych Fest was founded in 2008 to honor the legacy of Austin’s musical history as the birthplace of psychedelic rock through the creation of a music and multimedia art festival.  The festival showcases the best of vintage, modern, established and up-and-coming acts that push the envelope in mind expanding music.  The music is presented in an environment embracing experimental and innovative visual art and multimedia.

For a very young fest, the Psych Fest has a pretty nice line-up.  It will go from Friday to Sunday at Mohawk. Friday’s artists are The Raveonettes, Warpaint, Indian Jewelry, Ringo DeathStarr, Daughters of the Sun, Von Haze, and Christian Bland & The Revelators.  Doors at 12 pm.  Tickets are $40 for a 3-day pass and $15 each day if you buy in advance.
