Mention Syd Barrett to songwriter and artist Christian Bland (The Black Angels) and you will soon realize you’ve met a most knowledgeable and dedicated fan. No, seriously. The anniversary of Syd’s birth happens to be today, which means tonight’s show at The North Door with Christian Bland & The Revelators will undoubtedly include a fine and most appropriate tribute to the late, great crazy diamond who still shines on.
Bland’s musical side project headlines this special Free Week show, which also includes performances by Holy Wave and The Ghost Wolves. Head out to The North Door, 502 Brushy St. at E. 5th St., at around 10 p.m. Full on fuzzed-up pscyh-trippin’ bliss, my friend. Very recommended for the heart and soul. Don’t let the chilly air deter you from something pretty awesome.
And remember: It’s free.
