Music: Chimes, Pollen Rx, Side A Side B, Crazy Pills, Granny

The bill’s mostly familiar plus one touring act, but the sounds are complimentary in that they’re all essentially made up of that ooey gooey good stuff, a garage-pop-indie happiness-inducing rock n’ roll plasma, the stuff that keeps you hydrated this time of year when otherwise you might find yourself listening to nothing but chill wave and New Age. Pollen Rx are joining us from Austin, with that penchant for wide-eyed bright strings that could only be plucked with such fervor by someone living under bright sun rays all year round. Also get excited for Chimes‘ brand of burnt-out, blasé, sun-blistered psych-rock.
