    September 2013, WAND (of TY SEGALL's God? Records) was quietly dismembered and ritually eaten in the hills near Dodger Stadium. A few things, at least, are certain: WAND hears ghosts. WAND prefers serpents. The Sun is the mother of every fiction. All phenomena will be consumed in alphabetical order, but desire will recirculate ad infinitum. If all else fails, WAND will just devour more hands. Returning to our stage is HEATERS, a band that's drawn acclaim across the webosphere for their spacey, driving take on West Coast psych rock. Tapping into both the twang of their ‘60s garage compatriots and building their own brand of expansive, cosmic swells, Pitchfork calls the band “catchy and kinetic,” noting their “energy and hook writing are clearly on point.”Combining a seemingly constant output of “reverb coated, fuzz studded, hard driven garage psych” with a kaleidoscopic, hip-shaking live set, HEATERS are quickly forging something new and exciting. Not to be missed. E | G | O, formerly known as MASSIVE EGO, combines unapologetic punk swagger, naturally psychedelic brainwaves, folk-lovinglyness, and killer pop sensibility into one gleaming badass package. These multi-instrumentalist madmen are notorious for their madcap instrument switching and white-hot, high-energy live music. Their first full-length album, Don’t, was released the one year ago and is 40-minutes of mind-bending sonic assault. Featuring members of COFFIN SHIPS, REDDILICIOUS and MODE HEXE, Chicago's MELKBELLY returns to our stage, all the way from Pilsen, with their throwback, thrashy noise-rock. These fellas seem to be one of the hottest young names in town, bringing devilish grins to faces all over town whenever their live as hell shows go down. Since releasing one of the finest Chicago albums of 2014, Pennsylvania out on Automatic Recordings, they've continuously turned it up to 11 whenever they hit the stage and we can't wait to see them in action once again.
