Ever heard of the Bosstown Sound? The Psychedelic Supermarket, the Crosstown Bus, the Catacombs, the Unicorn? Magic Hour, The Freeborne, Ultimate Spinach, Sunburned Hand Of The Man, The Ocular Audio Experiment? Did you know that Dinosaur Jr are from Massachusetts (and that J. Mascis is a shred samurai)? That Chevy Chase was the drummer/keyboardist of Chamaeleon Church?
Well, it’s time to turn on, tune in, and freak out!
This is the twelfth show in Global Psychedelia’s 50 Psychedelic States series, and it’s super heavy. MASSACHUSETTS!
[p.s. there’s so much great music, past and present, from Massachusetts that I’m going to have to do another show. A lot didn’t make it onto this list.]
