Unlike the Shitty Beatles, Psychedelic Horseshit is just a clever name. (Those unfamiliar with Waynes World, note: This means the band doesnt suck.) The Columbus, Ohio threesomes brand of shoegazer rock is neither psychedelic nor crappy. For those out of the loop, shoegazer is a genre characterized by lo-fi distortion of both instruments and vocals (in other words, theres a constant buzzing throughout every song) and the tendency of its musicians to stare at the ground while performing. Psychedelic Horseshit stays true to the genre with danceable rock glazed over by dirty guitars, steady beats and usually inaudible lyrics. If youre still having trouble, think early Dinosaur Jr. or Jesus and Mary Chain, or get educated today when Psychedelic Horseshit plays with fellow Columbus, Ohioans Pink Reason. We promise the only thing shitty about the band is the name. 8 p.m. Sound Exchange, 1846 Richmond. For information, call 713-666-5555 or visit www.soundexchangehouston.com. Free, but throw a donation in the jar for these two touring bands it is the season of giving, people.
