It’s always an flash-backing sonic pleasure when we get to see The Entrance Band live. The trio drip of all that 60 psych a la Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd, and The Doors. Frontman, Guy Blakeslee lures you into his chaotic world of echoing guitar howls and cryptic vocals, as Paz Lenchantin seduces you on the bass as she shreds about in her signature baby doll dresses. The band comes fiercely together as drummer, Derek James takes you on a journey with his throbbing drum rolls. They are truly an epic visual and sonic experience to witness live.
We last caught The Entrance Band this past New Year’s Eve (again at the Satellite) and it was a most memorable and groovy way to ring in the new year. The band’s latest full-length record, Face The Sun sounds incredible live and is something you all need to witness in front of your eyes.
Opening up for The Entrance Band were post punk/psych rockers, Drinking Flowers (also from L.A.). Their tunes were ripe for the pickings and definitely were the perfect appetizer to the main course that was The Entrance Band. We recently caught Drinking Flowers open up for the Budos Band and it was pretty awesome (check out photos).
