Dog Gone Blog Presents a Night of Chilean Psych Rock on ThursdayMarch 20th, 2013
Juan Pablo Rodrigues (vocals and bass), Diego Lorca (drums) and Alfredo Thiermann (synths) met as kids in Santiago, Chile. Their first time playing music together, they found themselves amidst a two-hour jam, and something clicked. They later rounded out the sound by adding Domingo Garcia-Huidobro (guitar). Föllakzoid (above, playing for Nuez TV) do a psych-heavy take on krautrock, and they take their time making new music, having recently released their second album, II (stream it below).
Ives Sepúlveda and Manuel Parra are also musicians from Santiago. Doing business as the Holydrug Couple (below, playing “Slow Motion Cat”), they record dreamy, layered space rock out of a home studio. And along with Föllakzoid, they’re part of a great, trippy double bill, presented by Dog Gone Blog, tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge. And to make things a little extra special, Drippy Eye Projections will be providing visuals.
