LIVE MUSIC ELECTRIC PRUNES “In 1966 amid a flurry of feedback, tremolo and fuzz the Electric Prunes emerged from the confines of their Los Angeles garage onto the world stage. Their hit single, “I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)”, widely recognized as one of the first psychedelic hit records, heralded a transition in music and its presentation. In live performances their sonic combination of surf, psychedelia, tremolo and grit offered a unique auditory experience that was a far cry from the pop/folk music popular at the time.” Thu/12, doors 8pm, show 9pm, $25.
