2017 Highlights

Psychedelia is a musical genre that defies easy description. Look around the burgeoning scene and you will find Barrett-esque psychedelic pop, ethereal shoe gaze, dreamy acid folk, driving space rock, dark and punishing doom, bluesy stoner rock, proggy sci-fi romps, snarly garage rock and nearly every combination you could imagine. Although the purveyors of modern psychedelic music often share common roots, the best of these bands follow their own vision and create a sound uniquely their own.

The curators of Kaleidoscope Eye have sought out bands with a unique voice and will bring them together September 8 & 9 at Chicago’s Live Wire Lounge. Some you will know. Some will be a revelation. All will delight and amaze.

Friday night will feature seven amazing bands and Saturday will showcase eight more. As psychedelic music is a multi-dimensional medium, an amazing lighting experience is being developed and will be part of the festival’s entertainment.
