Joel Gion & the Primary Colours

Joel Gion & the Primary Colours The Love Dimension Cellar Doors and Down Dirty Shake Play The Independent-1/22

On January 22nd, The Independent will be hosting a psychedelic music showcase featuring Brian Jonestown Massacre's charismatic percussion extraordinaire, Joel Gion and his band The Primary Colours, San Francisco's premiere psych revivalist band, The Love Dimension, psych pop/post punk band, Cellar Doors and psych soul band, Down Dirty Shake. You don't see too many full local line ups play The Independent, so do your best to attend to ensure these bands have a successful show. The more we help local bands fill larger venues, the more the venues will be inclined to give Bay Area bands a chance to shine.

Not only is the line up local, but the bands are seasoned and absolutely stellar. We love a big shows just as much as we love bands straight out of the garage. Make your way out to the Independent and have a blast!

   

Joel Gion & the Primary Colours Play Two Bay Area Shows - 3/21 & 3/29

A month after playing their first show in San Jose, Joel Gion & the Primary Colours will be playing their first San Francisco gig on March 21st at Elbo Room along with newly minted SF-residents, the garage psych purveyors, Asteroid #4 and Portland's space rock outfit, Daydream Machine.

If one stacked lineup isn't enough, The Primary Colours will be playing a second show on March 29th at The Uptown in Oakland. This time around, San Francisco's garage rock heroes, Cool Ghouls will sub in for the Daydream Machine, joining the Colours and Asteroid #4 for another anticipated evening of revival rock and roll.

As an ambassador of the city's psychedelic underground of the 1990s, Joel Gion rose to recognition as the Brian Jonestown Massacre's erratic and endearing tambourine player. After shifting gears and challenging himself to be a songwriter for the first time, he formed The Primary Colours. So far, Joel has dropped small bits of material like his single, Yes, that features members of BJM and Asteroid #4, and drops hints that he has woven his own textured sonic tapestry. Joel Gion & the Primary Colours has yet to release any news about the emergence of their debut album, but check them out at one of their upcoming Bay Area shows to see what kind of trouble they've got in store for you and the scene. -Lauren Espina
