Levitation Review: Electric Wizard, Russian Circles, the Well
When Sound On Sound cancelled last year, it robbed Austin heshers of the hotly anticipated return of Electric Wizard. Last seen locally at Emo’s Jr. in 2001, the Dorset-born doomsters have grown in stature and influence since then, thrillingly demonstrated by Friday night’s slaying of a sold-out Stubb’s.

Levitation Review: Imarhan, Superfónicos
That wasn’t yet the full moon hanging coyly behind a hazy scrim last night, but Friday did bring Arbor Day. By 6pm outside at Cheer Up Charlies, the weather felt downright Mediterranean.

Levitation Review: Ty Segall & Parquet Courts
Internet chatter bristled about Brooklyn/Denton quartet Parquet Courts dipping into the daytime talk show circuit. Rumors of sell-out were also fueled by May’s Danger Mouse-produced LP. If any crowd surfers skimming over a sold-out Stubb’s crowd Thursday were put off by the band’s Ellen gig, it didn’t show – even as cowbells on “Wide Awake” kicked in.

Levitation Review: Dead Meadow, Windhand, Ruby the Hatchet
At Barracuda, there was no mistaking Levitation 2018’s roots as a psychedelic festival. Both the side wall and the outside stage were bathed in multi-colored liquid lights. Once Ruby the Hatchet finished setting up and began to crank, it felt like being caught in a vintage Musikladen video on YouTube.
