Psychedelic garage rock singer-songwriter from San Francisco. “Sweaty and cramped, the crowd ate up Segall’s set; it was the musical equivalent of a stranded swimmer thrashing against the waves for dear life,” says PopMatters writer Joshua Kloke in his review of Segall’s set at SXSW 2011. “He was a one-man wrecking crew, sucking in the crowd with the kind of intensity one might expect from the perennially labeled ‘next one’ of garage punk. [The performance] seemed to epitomize his artistic pursuits: play ‘em fast, play ‘em hard, and when you can, get a little weird.” Opening acts are the NYC psychedelic punk band K-Holes, the R&B-inflected Memphis punk band Ex-Cult, the Brighton rock trio Chit Chat, and DJ Jeremy Wheeler. Advance tickets: $12 ($14 at the door).
