Wrapping up a US tour tomorrow, March 28th at Rickshaw Stop, Mark Matos will be bidding adieu to San Francisco and his long-time collective, Os Beaches. A super group of sorts, Mark Matos & Os Beaches features some of the Bay Area's premiere musicians, including Jeff Davies of Brian Jonestown Massacre and Josh Pollock of Acid Mothers Gong. Together, with a revolving door policy on band members, they create Mark's imaginitive psychedelic folk sound, infusing it with San Francisco's rock and roll history and the sandy textures of the desert rock.
For this special performance, both a homecoming and farewell show, Mark Matos will be accompanied by an all-star Os Beaches lineup featuring Roger Reidlebauerm, Dave Mihaly, Annie Girl, Peter Case guitarist Dave Glasebrook and Anna Jo. Also on the bill is The Love Dimension and Mexico City's The Risin' Sun with special guest Michael Musika, and the projection master behind Mad Alchemy, who will be completing the sensory experience of the night with one of his signature liquid light shows.
The Love Dimension is a positive free love-centric powerhouse of a band. Drawing directly from the influential Woodstock '69 era, they create full and dance worthy soundscapes. Don't miss out on this energetic and groovy ensemble. Mexico based psycobilly band, The Risin' Sun will travel north to Cali just to play this legendary show. Their dank, lofi '60s sound will blend perfectly with this powerful line up.
Make sure you make it to Rickshaw Stop to witness the end of a Bay Area era. -Lauren Espina
