This event is 21 and over THIS GARCIA'S EVENT IS 21 YEARS OF AGE AND OVER AND IS GENERAL ADMISSION. Oakland, California's Howlin Rain are touring in support of 'The Alligator Bride,' their fifth LP of swampy, ragged, unapologetic rock 'n roll. Led by Ethan Miller (co-founder of psych rockers Comets On Fire and Heron Oblivion), the band recorded the album at the Mansion in San Francisco, direct to tape, in one or two takes. MOJO Magazine called the collection "an album of sublime crescendos and melodies like warm embraces, so joyful, so tender, so warmly anthemic, its vintage moves are timeless, and irresistible." 'The Alligator Bride' is Howlin Rain's first release on Silver Current Records, the artistrun label owned by Miller, and gleefully indebted to classic rock formations like the Grateful Dead's 'Europe '72' and Free's 1969 masterpiece of atmospheric, minimalist blues, 'Fire and Water.' "The guiding principle for 'The Alligator Bride' was to create 'Neal Cassady Rock,'" says Miller. "Which is to say, high energy, good-times adventure music, driving the hippie bus, shirtless and stoned, up for four days straight, and extremely fuzzy around the edges." It's a fitting vision for the band: torn between eras, fuzzed out but full of soul, an epic perspective on what's come before and what lies ahead, woven into a cosmic tapestry of riffs, rhymes, and resonant frequencies.
