Levitation Review: Oh Sees
Since launching (Thee) Oh Sees in 1997 as a receptacle for his experimental recordings, Bay Area rock maverick John Dwyer has churned out 20 studio albums and launched his own record label, all amid obsessive, extensive touring. What’s not to love?

Levitation Review: Wooden Shjips, Acid Mothers Temple, ST 37, Yoo Doo Right
Repetition is an important component of psychedelia, from adaptations of the German motorik beat to one-chord drones and endless boogie. The final night of Levitation 2018 at Empire Control Room brought a little from columns A, B, and C from an five-hour international showing.

Levitation Review: Escape-ism
“You know what would be really psychedelic?” offered D.C. mainstay Ian Svenonius late Sunday night inside Beerland. “If you could get away from advertising, real estate development. That would be trippy. If you could get away from condominiums, live-in work spaces. If you could get away from real estate speculation. That would be mind altering.”

Levitation Review: Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre

Levitation Review: Waxahatchee, Hurray for Riff Raff, Bedouine
Waxahatchee, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and Bedouine played it straight Sunday night. No skuzzy guitar licks, shoegaze distortion, or muddied wall-of-sounds to be found at Mohawk. In its place, a sonically-diverse bill of artists each intensely moving in a singular way.

Live Music Recommendations for the Week
If you're not too hungover from a weekend of psychedelic rocking at Levitation, check out grunge godfathers Melvins on Monday and continue with some indie and electro-folk throughout the week. So much jamming, so little time.

Levitation Review: Ministry
Ever hear of the Ship of Theseus? It’s the thought experiment that asks if you have a boat, and you replace the oars and the planks and the sails, is it really the same boat? That’s Ministry in 2018.

Levitation Review: Slowdive, Survive, Mien
The finest shoegaze usually overpowers the audience, inundating it with a monumental sonic wash of guitar. Slowdive is no typical dream-pop outfit. The Reading quintet prefers to entice rather than overwhelm, letting lush harmonies, ringing guitars, and a predilection for pop hooks dominate.
