Psychedelic Soul, sometimes called Black Rock, is a sub-genre of Soul music, which mixes the characteristics of Soul with Psychedelic Rock. It came to prominence in the late 1960's and continued into the 1970's, playing a major role in the development of Soul and Funk music. Over the past seven years, Monophonics have staked their claim as one of California’s premier bands in the genre. Raised amid the Bay Area’s rich musical culture, Monophonics has proudly carried on the tradition of music native to their hometown of San Francisco, which flourished during the birth of psychedelia. The result is a psychedelic soul & heavy funk sound, which harks back to the stylings of the late 60’s and early 70’s, all while keeping its feet planted in the present.
Humboldt County mainstay DJ Zephyr will open the show with a special all vinyl set. You can catch Zephyr spinning in local clubs or at The Works in Eureka.
