Brand new local Psych Rock crew Electric Citizen performs a free show Saturday at Northside’s Mayday.
The band, whose members have played in Two Headed Dog, The Lions Rampant and You, You’re Awesome, is working to release its debut full-length later this year. In the meantime, keep an eye out for a pair of 7-inch singles from L.A. label The Crossing (a cassette featuring the same songs will be released on Netherlands-based label, Breathe Plastic). Electric Citizen is wasting no time hitting the road — the group sets off this week for about two weeks’ worth of touring in the South and on the East Coast with Michigan’s Haunted Leather.
Saturday’s show will also include a set from Heaven’s Gateway Drugs, the Fort Wayne, Ind., band that impressed at the inaugural Cincy Psych Fest (organized, in part, by Electric Citizen’s Laura Dolan).
