Ty Segall - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Ty Segall

THE SEGALL HAS LANDED. And it’s fully loaded with everything that TySegall (and you and me) are gonna need in the world to come. Stickinghis hand deeper into the machines all around him, Ty is reaching ever further to the outer limits of inner space orbited throughout Twin sand Sleeper. And now more than ever, the chunks of the world that came before are like asteroids formed in his image, picking up speed. Still fighting the power with all the energy that a determined mind-patriot
can conjure, Ty’s a fighter who loves, a surfer, a spaceman, and yeah,a casualty – like you, he’ll never be free. But unlike you, he knowsit – and when he goes down and his head cracks in two, out pour the
multi-colored manias that make up Manipulator. Sour-sweet declarations
featuring freaks and creeps alike: “The Singer,” “The Faker,” “Mister
Main,” “Susie Thumb,” the “Connection Man,” and “The Crawler,” to name
but a mutant fistful.

To see these peeps, to realize their dreams and visions, Ty kept
working, kept writing, laying down more tracks than ever. New musical
expressions pop and surprise relentlessly throughout all the knockout
tunes of Manipulator which feature Ty’s helium-cooled vocals, sounding
more powerful and dynamic than ever, and many sounds in the mix, but most of all, SO many guitars! Strangled-neck solos recalling the good old days down by the river with Neil, numbed-and-unplugged
discursions, three-quarter quartets raising their din in a few key
places, waves of sparkling acoustics with ominous, Love-ly undertones
– and then, torrents of filthy git-grunge, exploding into the chorus,
washing everything away, fusing the blackness of Sabbath with the
grime and grab-ass of the Stooges and the sweet swinging tones of the Stones. All in the name of getting higher on the music. Why have one guitar solo when you can have a few in the same space? There’s so little time, and a LOT to say.

Ty Segall’s Manipulator is out August 26th on Drag City. Catch Ty and band — Mikal Cronin (bass), Charlie Moothart (guitar), Emily Rose Epstein (drums) — all over the country beginning the week of
Manipulator’s release!
Wand - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
September 2013, Wand was quietly dismembered and ritually eaten in the hills near Dodger Stadium. Wand reborn as “Wand”— an obese organ falsely organized as 4 overjoyous nerds. Four flesh balloons betting on a few aging amplifiers. I hear they listen to Here Come the Warm Jets on loop all day and plot mail fraud. I hear they stole Dale Crover’s car and sacrificed it to the weather near the Los Angeles County Line. Some few things, at least, are certain: Wand hears ghosts. Wand prefers serpents. The Sun is the mother of every fiction. All phenomena will be consumed in alphabetical order, but desire will recirculate ad infinitum. If all else fails, Wand will just devour more hands.
