Brian Jonestown Massacre’s new record, Aufheben, is a swirling mess of synthesizers and experimental guitar noise, and their live show was no different, except just a hair more captivating — and the record is pretty trance inducing as it is — watching Anton Newcombe and company spin all those parts into something whole and spider-webbed and throbbing along your veins. The set was hypnotizing and shimmering, the sounds of fall cool creeping into summer heat, and I was absolutely blind-sided by how great BJM were live.
Mpls band Magic Castles opened, and were equally captivating. Loved loved loved their set.
