The exciting, sun-kissed guitar and lo-fi vocals of Echo Park's own Mystic Braves is undoubtedly reminiscent of mid-'60s fuzz predecessors The Seeds, but also bursting with youthful confidence like fellow garage rock contemporaries The Allah-Lahs. Formerly Blackfeet Braves, the quartet channel the look and feel of a '60s rock group, from the shaky Super 8 footage tricks in their music videos to the shaggy hair and patterned wardrobe. It's no wonder they'd be a hit here in SoCal, where we're absolutely spoiled with music groups reclaiming classic psychedelic-garage rock these days, most notably from the Lolipop or Burger records ilk. Tonight is the first in a three-week romance between Mystic Braves and the Constellation room where all are invited to twist and shout the night away like its 1969.
