Mr. Elevator
Sunday, May 7

To call Mr. Elevator, formerly Mr. Elevator & The Brain Hotel, just your run of the mill psych rock band would be sort of missing the point. While their music may reflect some of the psychedelic attributes of bands in that genre, the vintage sounding production and poppy rhythms make them sound like they could’ve been on tour with The Beatles during the Yellow Submarine era. Based in L.A. and part of the Burger Records extensive psych/garage/everything family, Mr. Elevator channel Beatles-esque ‘60s pop and blend it with indie rock for a mix that sometimes feels like doing hallucinogenics at a circus. Drums and bass bounce through the tracks as keyboard, guitar, and vocal melodies braid over each other for a magical mystery ride through psychedelia and pop. For a band that is trying to sound like they came out of the 1960s, they’re pretty spot on. With Rotten Mangos, Sunjammer, 8pm, $9, K23 Gallery, 704 Fredericksburg Rd. – CC
