Australia’s answer to psychedelic rock, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard graced The Teragram Ballroom on Friday night with furious guitar licks and fuzzy feedback. Fans were riled up even before the septet took to the stage. But when they did, everyone really let loose. Playing a slew of songs from their 2016 release Nonagon Infinity, King Gizzard didn’t waste a moment for small talk or tuning, ripping straight through from beginning to end.

Fellow Aussies The Murlocs were warmly accepted by the crowd, with their solid energy and frontman Ambrose Kenny-Smith’s soulful harmonica jamming.

Locals Mind Meld kicked off the night with some hooky psych jams to get stuck in your head, including their newly released single “Viper.”
