MARS RED SKY Confirmed for The Obelisk All-Dayer, Aug. 20 at Saint Vitus Bar

Today I am thrilled to announce the first band for the first-ever The Obelisk All-Dayer, to be held Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016, at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn. Coming over from Bordeaux, France, ascendant heavy psych trio Mars Red Sky will make their first East Coast US appearance ever as a part of a seven-band lineup to be fully revealed over the coming months.

Following-up on 2014’s excellent Stranded in Arcadia, the new album is a defining moment that captures one of the heavy underground’s most satisfying progressions of the last half-decade, boldly moving the band forward while maintaining the blend of fragile melodicism and elephantine tonality that has become their hallmark.

Expect something genuinely special when they take the stage. After numerous European tours over the last several years, Mars Red Sky have truly reached a new apex, and I couldn’t be more proud to have them as a part of this event.

Ticket preorders for The Obelisk All-Dayer are available now, and more band announcements will follow over the coming months. The Obelisk All-Dayer is set to offer a different experience than the average fest. Set times will be longer to allow each band to really flesh out on stage. All sets will be recorded for posterity (at least unless someone says no). Look out for word about food on hand, posters and more to come as the day gets closer, and expect a heavy, spaced out and welcoming vibe for all who make the trip, no matter where they’re coming from or who they’re there to see. All are invited.

Thanks to everyone who can make it out, to Saint Vitus Bar for hosting, and thanks in advance to Mars Red Sky for making the trip.
