On today’s Austin Music Minute, it’s about reemerging from the dark side and channeling cheerful psych vibes with Calliope Musicals. The local six-piece outfit not only embraces the psychedelic matra(s) but also the audiences they play for, getting energized by actively involving the crowds in their performances. Equal parts folk, roots, and pop, Calliope Musicals blissfully spins multi-colored psych with arms outstretched to dizzying heights. Approach with open heart, open mind and open ears.
Needless to say, this will make you happy. Check out Calliope Musicals tonight at Lambert’s, 401 W. 2nd St., with fiery siren Emily Bell and soulful blues/folk trio Mother Merey & The Black Dirt. Doors open for the show at 9:30 p.m. Truly a triple bill to behold. Far out. And recommended.
