L.A. Witch

Fans of hazy, reverb-heavy ’60s garage rock may want to check out L.A. Witch, a trio of young ladies from La-La-land that draw (lofty) comparisons to veteran heavies from the Gun Club to Dead Moon. The songs are often moody blues vamps featuring the smoldering vocals of guitarist Sade Sanchez, who also knows how to belt them out while beating spacey riffs from her hollow body guitar. Some of the most affecting songs I heard were the softer ballads, though, like the circling 2014 song “Heart of Darkness,” which shows a young band with potential. Also on the bill are Richmond slink-rockers Lady God, and don’t miss the punk-tinged psych pop of the Harlequins and the dark ’70s new wave of Bummers Eve (sample song: “I Want Your Drugs”) both from Cincinnati. It should be an altogether rocking good time at Hardywood Craft Brewery on Friday, May 13. Music starts at 5:30 p.m. The tasting room opens at 4 p.m., and the Ubers start arriving somewhere in-between.
