3rd Annual Psychout!


Co-presented by Downtown Radio and The Loft Cinema!

Psychout! is a showcase of neo-psychedelic bands—acts that have taken their cues from late 60’s groups like Iron Butterfly, Jefferson Airplane, and Pink Floyd and added modern sonic technology to enhance the trippy vibes. The show also features homemade psychedelic imagery created specifically for the event that is projected onto the screen behind the bands while they’re playing.

Bands that played the first two events include The Desert Beats, Dread Cat and the Transitional Wave, Peppermint Hippo, Switch Affect, Trees Speak, Wet Marble, Crystal Radio, and Mute Swan, as well as two bands that are on the bill for this year’s event: Cobra Family Picnic and Silver Cloud Express.

This year’s lineup includes headliner The Myrrors, a Tucson band that has garnered fans all over Europe, where it is currently on tour, and released its third album Hasta La Victoria last year; The Psychedelephants, a young Phoenix band that released its second album Amalgamation in November of last year; Tropical Beach, a new-to-Tucson neo-psych act from Prescott; and Silver Cloud Express, a Tucson band that evolved from popular local act The Modeens and who will be releasing their debut EP Color of Our Dreams on the night of the show.

The imagery will be provided by Adan Kee-Martinez, who was co-collaborator on the imagery from the first Psychout! in 2016.
