“The songs are psychedelic in the sense that you lose yourself…almost immediately; in reality it’s closer to gospel or soul refashioned through the fractal lens of krautrock.”—Stereogum

You’ll fall under Spiritualized’s undeniable sway at this concert, just as the crowd did at the Coachella festival in April. Front man Jason Pierce has really been hitting his stride recently, creating some of his best music ever. Pitchfork described his latest release, Sweet Heart Sweet Light, as “exhilarating” and “probably the most uplifting album of his career.” On it, and live, his images of fast cars, faster women, gospel redemption, danger, death, and transcendence mine the timeless counterpoints and rhythms that have always underpinned the blues and rock ’n’ roll.

Stereogum’s reviewer called Spiritualized’s Coachella show one of the biggest highlights of the festival and went on to sum up the experience: “Everything builds before you realize what’s happening—you’re moving, swaying to the rhythm, watching the band add new layers that wrap you in an embrace, the big-tent voices of the black backup singers lifting you higher and higher. By the time it all comes down it feels like we’re in church…offering the spiritual experience implicit in the band’s name—what more could you want from a weekend in the desert?”

Guy Blakeslee, of psych-rockers the Entrance Band, sets the show’s tone with a mesmerizing solo set. 

Note: This is a standing room only show.
