Psycho De Mayo is bigger and badder than ever this year. Over 20 bands and 14 hours of music make this year’s psych-rock festival the largest on the West Coast. Well, Psycho De Mayo also just got a whole lot louder. A Place To Bury Strangers (APTBS) are making the trek to California to kick-off Psycho De Mayo on May 10th, the Saturday night before the all-day festival. This special Psycho De Mayo pre-party is being held at the 200 person capacity Constellation Room at The Observatory in Santa Ana. That means this show will sell out fast, and if you don’t have a ticket you won’t be getting in. This is the ONLY tour date for A Place To Bury Strangers at this time, so ya, it’s a big deal. APTBS were one of the headliners at last year’s inaugural Psycho De Mayo festival and we are stoked to see them back this year for the pre-festival festivities.
Thief Presents has been loading up with a ton of pre-shows and other special events for this year’s Psycho, so stay tuned for more small shows across California. We’ll be announcing a pre-show and party next week that Rabbits Black and Thief will be throwing together in Downtown LA in March. For now, get your $15 tickets to see A Place To Bury Strangers at the Constellation Room. It’s going to be a sweaty mess! Check out our interview with Dion Lunadon from APTBS below:
