Frisco Freakout

Powell St. John
Powell St. John

San Francisco has seen a psychedelic renaissance in recent years, with a bumper crop of artists channeling styles from surrealist pop to acid rock. Last year, Ripley Johnson of hypnodrone masters Wooden Shjips and music journalist Richard Simon dedicated an all-day festival, Frisco Freakout, to the re-emerging scene. The event was such a success that it has become an annual affair. Highlights of this Saturday's Freakout include legendary Texas songwriter Powell St. John, Stooges sax player Steve MacKay skronking it up with locals Liquorball, and nine other California bands churning out tripped-out rock accompanied by lysergic light shows.
