Frankie and the Witch Fingers rolled their sideshow of psychedelic curiosities into one of Atlanta’s landmark venues, The Earl. Without delay, the audience quickly entered a slipstream of cranked up fuzz, reverb, and thunderous drum fills. This band has easily become one of the most exciting live acts to catch on tour.
In 2022, there seems to be two primary psychedelic rock hubs:
The U.S. West coast acts like Osees, Ty Segall, and Wand as well as Australian contemporaries like King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Pond, and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. Frankie and the Witch Fingers belong to the West Coast camp–more specifically, Los Angeles. Like any good scene, bands create new and innovative lanes for themselves while still adding to the fertile environment for others to participate. This band gives music fans hope that this wave of innovative rock is nowhere near out of fresh ideas.
Audiences have been enjoying eclectic setlists that span across their sonically vibrant discography and can look forward to hearing the new singles “Electricide” and “Chalice” through stacks of buzzing amps and speakers. Frankie and the Witch Fingers is slated to ring in the new year with selected tour dates. If they aren’t traveling to your city, you can witness their mind bending Levitation Session and mosh in the comfort of your own home.
