King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard + Tropical Fuck Storm at the Neptune

Australia has been pumping out incredibly talented psych bands these days who know how to make my head hurt, in all the right ways. It’s always a treat to see Aussie bands this far north and Tuesday’s show definitely didn’t let me down!
