When: Fri., July 4, 9 p.m. 2014

Holding down the fort for occult psychedelia in Fort Wayne, Indiana, this five-piece self-released their impressive debut, You Are Heaven’s Gateway Drugs, via Bandcamp last year. The band’s polished, melodic psych-rock will likely appeal to fans of Spacemen 3 and the Brian Jonestown Massacre—it’s got a sweet sense of harmony, a good ear for pacing and timing, and solid, catchy bass lines to anchor the songs amid their billowing gusts of processed guitar. Heaven’s Gateway Drugs are always working on new material, and their live show is a delight—they generate a seductively cultish vibe that’s pretty on the outside and creepy on the inside. Keep an eye on percussionist and “roaming shaman” Ben Carr in particular. —Monica Kendrick
