Fans of heavy psych-tinged retro rock rejoice, Ace of Cups and Starwood Presents have the bill you’ve been waiting for coming up this Wednesday. It’ll be an occasion worth pulling your bellbottoms out of the closet for as Electric Citizen rolls into town with Riding Easy label mates Mondo Drag and Slow Season.
For the unitiated, Electric Citzen hail from Cincinnati and are Sabbath fetishists of the highest order. Lead singer Laura Dolan’s stage presence even reminds me of a female Ozzy and they are out supporting last year’s excellent Sateen release. They’ve rolled through town before both headlining and as openers on some other excellent Starwood Presents bills and are well worth the price of the ticket alone. I was introduced to Slow Season via a bonus 7” Riding Easy records threw in on an order I made with them. The first thing that will come to mind when listening to these guys is the mighty Led Zeppelin and they hit their stoner blues marks just right. Mondo Drag are out promoting their proggy self titled opus and fans of local heavy psych heroes Eye would do well to pay attention to these guys. Speaking of local acts, Columbus rockers Red Feathers will be getting the evening off to a rip roaring start.
All in all, fans of heavy music, you can’t do much better for $10 on a Wednesday night. Doors are at 8:00 with music starting at 9:00. Check out the line-up below.
