Donkeys, Young Volcanos

When: Mon., May 30, 9:30 p.m. 2011

If you're familiar with the TV series Lost, then you may know of Geronimo Jackson, an imaginary early '70s psychedelic folk act with a Grateful Dead-like backstory. That mythic band's music was actually by The Donkeys, a SoCal quartet whose laid-back twang sounded like it wafted out of Laurel Canyon on weed smoke. It was pleasant, but the band's latest, Born With Stripes, is the quintessential step forward into hypnotic Loaded-era VU repetition, Easybeats garage and Buffalo Springfield psychedelia, augmented by strains of Pavement, Beck and Black Keys white-boy blues. It's a cohesive, era-spanning listen, and one that should translate well to the stage. With Young Volcanos. —John Schacht
