Mystic Braves @ The Chapel

(Courtesy of Mystic Braves)

Mystic Braves have heard your accusations of blatant revivalism, and, well, they don’t care. The Los Angeles band are as committed as ever to touring the country with their gorgeous mid-’60s psychedelic vibrations while donning colorful vintage threads plucked from the heyday of the Haight-Ashbury era. Stopping in the Bay Area means the quintet’s jangling sonic swirl will receive the Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show treatment, whose live projection work is nothing short of mesmerizing (and, quite frankly, worth the price of admission in and of itself). Put together, this particular fusion of sound and vision is about as close to watching the Zombies at their peak as you can get in 2016. And hey, just because the Haight is now swarming with Twitter employees doesn’t mean we can’t have a little hippie Halloween fun. Tune in and drop out, baby.

Mystic Braves with the Acid Test, at 9 p.m., on Monday, Oct. 31, at the Chapel. $18-$20; thechapelsf.com.
