Longtime MAT MAG favorites L.A. Witch recently rocked Hollywood Forever’s Masonic Lodge in support of Japandroids. Hometown appearances are increasingly rare events now that the buzzy psych-garage trio is conquering the world, and their Masonic Lodge felt particularly special. Amidst world tours, L.A. Witch’s sold-out two-night run at the Masonic Lodge came immediately before their June world tour, which began with their official Russian debut in Saint Petersburg for the Warmvibes 2018 festival.
Backed by trippy, VHS-style visuals L.A. Witch’s signature moody, desert-tinged grooves made for some some especially spooky vibes for the cemetery show. Following their blistering set, hard-hitting Canadian duo Japandroids unleashed a hyperkinetic storm of sweat-inducing rock. Check out our full photo gallery and tour dates below.
L.A. Witch will return to Los Angeles to support The Distillers and Starcrawler at the Hollywood Palladium on Sept. 15. Catch them on tour throughout Europe this month at the dates below.
