Psychedelic Rock at Dominion NY

You need Flash player 10+ and JavaScript enabled to view this video. Live celebrated its inaugural NYC event this past February with four psych-rock bands at the small venue with a BIG soundsystem Dominion NY. Fans of the psychedelic spectrum were treated to a range of rising new artists within the genre (and beyond). The uninitiated were rewarded for their music curiosity with three killer live sets, an incredible sound system, and a pre-release listen to Mexican Summer’s newest offering, Mike Wexler‘s Dispossession.

First up were Brooklyn’s own Friend Roulette, an ensemble led by Matt Meade and named for its fluctuating line-up. Here’s them performing ‘Warm’ from the night:

Quilt followed with a ripping set of blistered psych tunes off their debut self-titled album (available to purchase here). Stream ‘Penobska Oakwalk’ recorded live at Dominion NY here:


Last up came Amen Dunes with the most intense performance of the evening. Lead singer Damon McMahon’s vocals soaring through endless reverb, as haunting guitar work and swelling drums took each song to further heights. A perfect cap to the evening. Watch their performance of ‘Bedroom Drum’ above.
