Acid Mothers TempleBottom of the Hill (1233 17th Street, San Francisco, CA) Map it $12
An Acid Mothers Temple performance is the kind often spoken about in hushed and reverent tones by those familiar with the Japanese psychedelic musical collective. Formed by guitarist Kawabata Makoto in 1995, Acid Mothers Temple, and all its myriad incarnations, have released nearly fifty full length studio LPs, each a swirling mass of spacey kraut rock, hippie folk and psychedelic insanity. It’s the kind of music, and attendant live shows, that make listeners question everything they once thought to be true, a trip into the outer reaches of performance and sound.
