Nine Can’t Miss Desert Daze 2018 Undercard Acts

L.A. Witch Desert Daze 2018

SUNDAY

Föllakzoid

8:30 to 9:15 PM, The Theatre

Once upon a time at Levitation 2015, I witnessed a Chilean trio create such a potent atmosphere with trance-inducing riffs, loops and Kautrock rhythms that a swarm of awe=struck fans and dudes tripping on mushrooms rushed the stage to shout their thanks and accolades for such an epic journey. That band was Föllakzoid.

Sextile

4:15 to 4:50 PM, The Theatre

Fresh off a European tour, LA punks Sextile pull from the likes of post-punk, goth and industrial for a dark, raw style of their own. On their recently released EP 3, Sextile swapped the guitars for synths for a futuristic sound that thrills and spooks in equal measure.

If you follow my advice and catch Cat Scan on Caturday, then you’ll inevitably get blown away by bassist-guitarist-vocalist Quincy Larsen’s frenetic fretboard work and penchant for letting loose both on and offstage. Well, she’ll be pulling double duty by rocking out with Sextile on Sunday, too.

Tess Parks

1:00 to 1:45 PM, Mystic Bazaar

Tess Parks’ smoky vocal style brings to mind a retro psychedelic Hope Sandoval by way of Nico. She released a stellar collaborative album I Declare Nothing with The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe in 2015, and the pair are set to release a self-titled followup on Oct. 19. Assuming you aren’t passed out from partying until sunrise, the Mystic Bazaar is the place to be early Sunday afternoon.
