May 29 KZSC Presents: Sugar Candy Mountain w/ Luke Sweeney and Jackie Zealous

Sunday May 29: KZSC Presents tropical psychedelic pop band, Sugar Candy Mountain from Joshua Tree, California. Playing with Santa Cruz's surf garage rock band, Jackie Zealous and San Francisco's psychedelic soul pop band, Luke Sweeney. "If Brian Wilson had dropped acid on the beach in Brazil and decided to record an album with Os Mutantes and The Flaming Lips, it would sound like this— featuring space-age sounds and far-out frequencies from the tripped out tropics," then you would have Sugar Candy Mountain. Hope to see you there!
