Austin’s Shame Shame Productions is known around town for their exposure of fresh local talent. It’s no surprise that their Mellowfest is stacked with some of Austin’s top psych rock acts. This year they’ve partnered with Independence Brewing to throw one hell of a party on July 12. Mellowfest features Psych Fest veterans Christian Bland and the Revelators and The Golden Dawn Arkestra (you also known Christian as a member of the Black Angels). Others acts include The Moonwalks, Hollow Trees, Milezo, Mellowphant, Mudrag and many more.
