In August, Ghost of Blind Lemon turns eleven years old. It’s not as monumental as ten, but it’s still worth celebrating, right? So today, I announce to you a special show celebrating eleven years of Ghostness. It shall take place at Double-Wide, and here are the acts that shall take the stage:

Sunbuzzed
I knew Sunbuzzed was a special band before I even saw them. Let me explain: some of you might recall a band I liked called Space State. Their song “Daisy” was on repeat in my iTunes. “Daisy” was a slow, dreamy song that blurred the lines between shoegaze and psychedelia. Space State then evolved into Sunbuzzed, although I was not aware of that fact when I first saw the band. I knew that their big, heavy, psychedelic blur of energy was a show that convinced me I would love Sunbuzzed. When I discovered the connection between the bands, it made me love them even more than I already did.

Corner Suns 
I could take the easy way out of reviewing the band and just say two words: John Dufilho. His is a name that automatically conveys quality songwriting from both a melodic and lyrical perspective. This project of Dufilho’s combines his talent with Brandon Carr, formerly of The Earlies. The band ventures more into the 60’s style psychedelic pop than the heavier, fuzzed out modern interpretation of psychedelic rock.

Caved Mountains (shown above)
Caved Mountains also veer into psych rock, although their sound borders on entering sludge territory. Fans of True Widow should run, not walk, and buy their new EP, A Slow Decline. Although (relative) brighter and less melancholy than TW, the similarity in styles are there. And that’s a huge complement, as True Widow put on easily one of the greatest live shows I’ve ever seen from a local band.

Yes, this show is definitely heavy on the psychedelic side of things, but I hear that’s what all the kids are into these days. And that includes this overgrown kid. So come hang with all the cool kids (and The Ghost as well) on August 4th.
