Folk/psych/garage rocker/seeker of the light Kyle Thomas aka King Tuff wound up the last leg of his Infinite Smiles Tour at the Troubadour flanked by a group of fantastic musicians. Tuff entered the stage wearing a black cape and started things off playing a solo with an exotic instrument plugged into his guitar amp. Then he launched into the fuzz-filled riff of “Black Moon Spell” while we watched in awe. The always eccentric Tuff dazzled us with his esoteric and mysterious lyrics in songs like “Psycho Star.” They wrapped the set with cheery song “Headbanger” and we couldn’t stand still.

Tropa Magica warmed up the early crowd with their festive tunes while chugging cervezas.
