Brian Jonestown Massacre Schedule
The Brian Jonestown Massacre started out as a shoegazing band. A subgenre of
alternative rock, shoegazing came out of the U.K. in the late '80s peddled by bands like Ride, My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive.
But after their first two albums, Brian Jonestown Massacre quickly shifted their musical focus, delving into psychedelic rock.
They merged influences of acid rock, electronica, raga, blues and folk into their music.

Brian Jonestown Massacre Background
San Francisco, Brian Jonestown Massacre took shape in 1990. Since its inception, the band has gone through over three dozen
members but the linchpin of the band has always been Anton Newcombe, the primary songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. They
released their debut album, Methodrone, in 1995. The album served as an example of the "shoegazing" sound that had emerged
out of the U.K. many years before the album arrived. One of their albums that they put out in 1996,Their Satanic Majesties'
Second Request,offers up psychedlia that continues to define their sound to this day. Also in 1996 Brian Jonestown Massacre
dropped Take It from the Man!The third record they issued in 1996 was Thank God for Mental Illness, which embraces the R&B
sound flavored with country. They rocked the album, Bringing It All Back Home - Again, with country/folk inspirations. The
album mirrors a satirical twist on Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home. By the early 2000s, the Brian Jonestown Massacre
took a more contemporary approach for their music, reflected in their album, And This Is Our Music.The album draws on electronica
influences. Several other albums were cut over the years, including their latest, Revelation (2014).
