On Saturday, October 26th, minds will be expanded and doors to perception will be opened as Mayday in Northside hosts the 2nd Annual Cincy Psych Fest. Psych Fest is a celebration of music designed to engulf the listener in a gooey-sticky cluster of psychedelic imagination.
Inspired by The Austin Psych Fest Cincinnati Psych Fest pairs bands steeped in the sounds of 60's psychedelia, with those bent on breaking the rules of music.
