Commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the Summer of Love with one of San Francisco's original trip-inducers! Amoeba Music is proud to sponsor the 2017 Mad Alchemy Trip tour, which will hit major cities and groovy clubs along the West Coast July 12 - July 22nd. Fantastic psych-inspired bands The Asteroid No. 4, LSD and the Search for God, The Stevenson Ranch Davidians, Jesus Sons, Dream Phases, Creatures Choir, and Family of Light Band will be accompanied by the mesmerizing projection work of the Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show, making for a sensory experience that cannot be missed.

The Mad Alchemy light show finds its lineage traced back to the iconic rainbow-hued liquid light projections birthed during the 1960s. Spearheaded by artist Lance Gordon (who has performed alongside legacy acts such as Roky Erickson and Big Brother and the Holding Company, as well as well as modern psychedelic mainstays King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Temples, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre among countless others), Mad Alchemy has performed over 900 times in venues across the US, Europe, and Mexico. Joined by some of the West Coast's most exciting new groove and fuzz-laced musical acts, Gordon and crew will cover the bands in a living, rhythmic painting that draws both the audience and the performers into a synesthetic wonderland.
