YAHOWHA13 in the Barney Danson Theatre!! These guys sound INSANE. Like, literally insane.

From their BIO:

"Founded in 1969 in the Los Angeles area, YaHoWha 13 is a psychedelic rock band fronted by Father Yod, spiritual leader of a religious cult/commune called the Source Family. The band recorded nine LPs full of their extreme psychedelic sound with tribal drums and distorted guitars, all completely unrehearsed.

Members of The Source Family, who lived in the Hollywood Hills in the early 1970s, decided to fuse their musical talents and spirituality by forming an improvisational, psychedelic music group. They began to press LPs in 1973, all of which were recorded after hours of meditation at 3:00-6:00 a.m. in a soundproofed garage that served as the musicians’ studio at the family's communal residence. All of the records with Father Yod’s participation were completely improvised, with no rehearsals or overdubs. Most of the albums were pressed in small runs of only 500 to 1000 copies on the the Higher Key label. They were sold to the general public in Father Yod’s wildly popular vegetarian Source Restaurant for $10 each. Though only nine LPs were produced and released, it is rumored that more than 65 albums were recorded by the group but were lost over the years.

The band changed members occasionally, morphing into various incarnations, from Father Yod and the Spirit of ’76 to YaHoWha 13 to The Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wha, Yodship, and Fire Water Air; but the key players were always the same: (Djin Aquarian on guitar, Octavious Aquarian on drums, and Sunflower Aquarian on bass). Sky Saxon of The Seeds occasionally appeared with the band.

In 2007, the surviving members of YaHoWha 13 (Sunflower, Octavius and Djin), reformed and played several gigs in Los Angeles and San Francisco. In June 2008, they signed with a new booking agent out of New York and began touring domestically and in Europe in 2008."

Can't wait to hear what Sunflower, Octavius and Djin get up to tonight!!
