The Love Dimension
The Love Dimension with Zodiac Death Valley and the Lotus Moons. 8 p.m. Saturday, July 6, at Rickshaw Stop; $10.
There's a tradition of performers utilizing male and female voices in a distinctive manner: Johnny Cash and June Carter, Jefferson Airplane, X, and the Mamas and the Papas, among others, are remembered for their surging, arresting vocal blend. Add to that list locals the Love Dimension, who, appropriate to their Summer of Love-era moniker, evoke those acts and more. The Love Dimension merges the earthy with the trippy, roadhouse stomp with lysergic expeditions — this is no one-trick pony. While drawing upon 1960s sounds for their sonic palette, the members of the Love Dimension also remember to put spunk and personality into the mix, too.
