WHO: Well, if you Google “Psycho De Mayo” you’ll see a ton of other events pop up under Google’s search engine that have already taken to use this festival/event name. Don’t get it twisted though, this is Orange County’s fist psychedelic musical festival brought to you buy Thief Presents and it’s going to be amazing.
WHAT: Some really kick-ass psychedelic and experimental bands spread across three stages: BLACK MOUNTAIN • DEAD SKELETONS • A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS • DEAD MEADOW • SLEEPY SUN • DAHGA BLOOM • MMOSS • STRANGERS FAMILY BAND • HIGHLANDS • HOLY WAVE (Austin) • VINYL WILLIAMS • THE ORANGE REVIVAL (Sweden) • JJUUJJUU • BLANK TAPES • BLACKFEET BRAVES • SPANISH MOSS • ROSE WINDOWS (Seattle) • MR.ELEVATOR & THE BRAIN HOTEL • BLAAK HEAT SHUJAA • THE VLIETS • LEVITATION ROOM • DOUGLAS & THE FURS • DRINKING FLOWERS and more to-be-announced on February 3rd.

P.S. – Not quite sure why they have Psycho De Mayo’s Facebook event page taglined as “Orange County’s First Annual Psychedelic Music Conference.” A “conference” generally has educational classes and keynote speakers. Maybe show-goers are in for an educational surprise??? We shall see …
