Cosmonauts, Holy Wave

For a band producing heavy backbeat, spaced-out psychedelia, Cosmonauts has a geographical edge on the competition. Operating out of Fullerton, the band has the nearby rock ‘n’ roll mecca of Burger Records pushing their tapes and LPs on the parishes of American psych communities. (Ironically, the garage hotspot of Burger is located in a Southern California strip mall.) On last year’s Persona Non Grata, the quartet dropped 10 tracks of isolated, droning riffs and upbeat haze on Burger wax. While the hometown label is on board, Cosmonauts has also attracted the attention of Austin’s Reverberation Appreciation Society, the lysergic label that dropped the band’s “Lazerbeam” seven-inch. Fellow members of the RAS include Holy Wave, a like-minded Austin quintet whose 2014 LP Relax also saw some distribution from Burger (seems to be a pattern). With DJ Proper Yarn and the Fillmore West worshippers Creatura. $10-$12, 9pm Fri, The Korova, 107 E Martin, (210) 226-5070, —Matt Stieb
