My absolute favorite festival, Levitation fka Austin Psych Fest (I know, I know, I just can’t let go of the old name. It makes explaining it to coworkers a lot easier) dropped their lineup for 2019. Honestly, I hate the current format of various shows happening at different clubs instead of being at one spot at Carson Creek Ranch, which was actually really fun and super convenient.
Either way, the lineup actually kicks some serious ass with acts such as Kikagaku Moyo, Holy Wave, Deafheaven, Black Mountain, Russian Circles, Death Valley Girls, The Black Angels, Chelsea Wolfe, Allah Lahs, Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr., Black Mother Super Rainbow, and A Place To Bury Strangers amongst a whole bunch of other amazing bands. I’m giving some serious thought to going because I really miss Austin and Levitation.
Tickets for Levitation 2019 are on sale now at various price points for individual shows, or $395 for a 4 day pass that gets you into select venues, or $175 for shows only at Stubbs.
