The Mystery Lights
June 13, 2019
With a live show known for its raw, visceral energy and relentless assault – leaving little to no stoppage between songs – The Mystery Lights, who started in Salinas in 2004 and moved to New York in 2014, barreled through countless NYC haunts and DIY venues, quickly amassing a fervent local following. The buzz soon caught the attention of Daptone Records execs who were in the beginning stages of launching a new rock-centric imprint, Wick Records.
In 2016, The Mystery Lights were quickly crowned “one of New York’s finest garage rock bands” by NME. Extensive touring, including multiple stops in Europe, Asia and Australia followed which found the group graduating from support slots at hole-in-the-wall clubs to headlining stages at major festivals worldwide. With their second record out last month, The Mystery Lights are touring and taking their idiosyncratic brand of rock and roll to dizzying new heights.
SF locals The Chuckleberries, featuring Russel Quan of The Mummies, are opening with their always eccentric performance fronted by Dave Seabury.
