Secret Chiefs 3

Across all genres (and pretty much across time and space, too) come Secret Chiefs 3, the hallucinogenic brain child of Trey Spruance (of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle). Blending as many musical styles as their rotating cast of band members, Secret Chiefs 3 is an instrumental group that no category can hold. They combine aspects of Persian music with metal, Indian song with surf rock, Arabian melodies with electronica—and bubbling up through that wildly random gumbo of styles is actually some pretty great jam rock. With two new singles dangling to drop (and being pre-ordered now), the group tours along the West Coast this month, making a rare stop in Orange County. Prepare to have minds, ears and imaginations completely blown.
