YOU LOOKIN’ AT ME?!? Live, from the Variety Playhouse, it’s – you know who…

I’m not really going to try and describe this show – because you know, Ty Segall. But when the hardest working man in indie-rock goes out of his way to bring it to a town or city near you, you should go. Especially when he brings his equally hard-working and talented buddies like King Tuff (guitar, Orange Strat) and Mikal Cronin (bass). The music is raw and it’s big, and what’s a great rock show without some theatrical weirdness?
Ty Segall is the prolific man upfront sometimes with the big bald baby head mask; The Muggers are Emmett Kelly (guitar), Cory Handson (keyboards, guitar, and stuff), Evan Burrows (drums) and the aforementioned Kyle Thomas (King Tuff) and Cronin. Not sure bands get any more packed with talent than that. Their US tour continues through March, Levitation Festival (formerly Austin Psych Fest) April 29th, then off for European shows this Summer. Dates are HERE.
I do apologize for the lack of variety camera angles for this gallery. I had my heavy duty Canon and zoom and didn’t want any of the moshers down front to get hurt.
