So Many Wizards
Non Plus Ultra Benefit Show With Pinky Pinky, Melted and So Many Wizards, Saturday September 23rd 2017
the DIY venue Non Plus Ultra had to close down
reinventing glam rock
He was holding his guitar very high and tight, pointing it like a gun toward the amp, he has recently collaborated with Ty Segall and his sound couldn’t have been more punk-psychedelic with a heavy layer coming straight from the 70’s.
Which makes me think, I have probably use the terms psychedelic/psychedelia way too many times in this review, but try to see 24 bands in 10 hours!
the other songs were running as quickly as life goes fast, and it may have been this sense of urgency that made Kazerouni to start four bands, three other ones (Crown Plaza, GNTLMN/Others, and Nectarine) in parallel with So Many Wizards,… talk about prolific!
This new Lolipalooza event had 33 bands playing on three stages in just one afternoon-evening, I managed to see 29 of them, and it felt like a marathon! Yes, I am exhausted today, it was a bit crazy and way too much for the same day, but it’s always the case for festivals. There is no way I am gonna remember what the first or even the 15th band sounded like but who really cares?
On Saturday night, it was So Many Wizards and Manhattan Murder Mystery… Really? Matthew Teardrop, his backpack and Urban Outfitters in the same place? That was promising so I decided to go despite my usual heavy load of schoolwork.
