See Neon Indian Play Webster Hall Tomorrow Night

October 20th, 2011

Neon Indian is the brainchild of composer Alan Palomo. He had been writing and creating music as part of the band Ghosthustler and then as the artist VEGA prior to creating the dreamy lullabies and grinding guitar of Neon Indian. After Palomo missed a date to take acid with a friend—Alicia Scardetta, who now provides Neon Indian’s visuals—he sent her a musical apology called “Should Have Taken Acid with You.” When she responded positively to the tune, it spurred him on to create more. The results of which, Psychic Chasms, were released in 2009 to much acclaim. A second disc, Era Extraña, came out last month and so Palomo is now on the road in support of it. And when he plays live, he doesn’t go it alone, instead he’s joined onstage by drums, keys and guitar. See for yourself when Neon Indian (above, doing “Mind Trips” last year at The Beach at Governors Island for Fader TV) plays Webster Hall tomorrow night.
