Spiral Electric 

When: Sun., June 23, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

San Francisco's The Spiral Electric is a psych-rock group with an acid-drenched sound that creeps and crawls into the recesses of your mind where it stays with you, kinda like those fuzzy college memories of when shit got weird. Much like the band's predecessor, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Spiral Electric's songs are hypnotic and build into a crescendo of sound. Lead vocalist Clay Andrew lends the band a distinct sound with his strong, clear voice and impressive range, anchored by synths, electric guitar riffs, and steady drumming. It manages to be thought-provoking, too. For example, "A Better Way" is a reverberating jam that poses vulnerable questions: Is there a better way?/Am I the only one? The complexities of the band's sound deserve to be heard live, so go get lost in it at The Stork Club (2330 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). With Deep Space, Max Pain and The Groovies, Electric Magpie, and DJ Al Lover.
