Photographed At the Paradise Rock Club, Boston Massachusetts, June 4, 2010. 'Brian Jonestown Massacre" has a BIG sound. With anywhere from 3 to 5 guitars playing at the same time, all those electric guitars on stage blend into a broad and dense sound that obscures the individual in service of the collective. Think "The Byrds' on drugs... oh yeah, wait a sec... so nevermind that. These guys have sort of a big garage band take on "California rock" that has to be heard live. Enjoyed them muchly.
