Sun Dog, Shasta & the Second Strings, Wonderstone, Fast Eddy

When: Mon., Jan. 5, 9 p.m. 2015

Psychedelic music and the desert just seem to go together; the spacey guitar, echoing vocals and heavy percussion somehow reflect the magic and weirdness of that lonely, wild environment. One band that draws inspiration from that harmonious combination is psych-rock/shoegaze band Sun Dog, which creates music that echoes the influence of a desert a few hundred miles away from Salt Lake City, in Albuquerque, N.M. The four-piece is on tour in support of their latest EP, Before Spain, which sounds like it could be the soundtrack to a murder, head trip or both, and begs to be turned up loud. Sun Dog released Before Spain in August, but they have plans to start recording their debut full-length album as soon as this month, so be on the lookout for new explorations of arid dreamscapes. Wonderstone, Fast Eddy and local blues-rock band Shasta & the Second Strings will open. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
