Review: Sky Saxon & The Seeds w/ Spindrift at Spaceland

Spindrift
Spindrift

Spindrift (bandmembers include some of the infamous Brian Jonestown Massacre players) set the very dimly lit stage on fire with cool spagetti western instrumentals. Toward the end of their set, they banged out the classic song “I’m Tripping on Herion” and then Sky took over the stage playing all his cool songs, including of course, “Pushing Too Hard”. At one time, a “know-it-all” walked on stage through the back stage door and said some negative things to the bass player who then publicly announced the senario that just took place with the jokster and good thing the guy bailed, because the crowd was in disagreement with him. In the middle of the set, I was given the boot (“ouch!”) because Sky’s wife didn’t want any videotaping of the show. (Dawn Laureen)
