If you’ve noticed a fierce glow on the northern horizon recently, it’s not the atmospheric shimmer from the aurora borealis.

If you’ve noticed a fierce glow on the northern horizon recently, it’s not the atmospheric shimmer from the aurora borealis. That flickering sky light is the incendiary firestorm emanating from Pet Sun, a Hamilton, Ontario quartet with a penchant for Garage riffs, Pop melodicism and Stoner Rock rumble, all played through amps with volume knobs that seemingly spiral into an infinity of astrally projected psychedelic distortion. Pet Sun is the squalling sound of the Gallagher brothers if they’d been as intoxicated by Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer as they were The Beatles. Read more about the band in this week's Sound Advice.


Pet Sun plays Northside Yacht Club Sunday with Leggy and The Harlequins. More info: northsideyachtclub.com .
