Twin Peaks & Hinds with White Mystery //
The Chapel – San Francisco

Twin Peaks and Hinds stopped by The Chapel this month for a two-night stint during their co-headlining tour along the West Coast that ended with two performances on Coachella’s new Sonora Stage (read our festival review here).

Hinds, for one, were sure to show off their energetic brand of garage punk in SF, where they performed in front of a sold-out crowd at a venue known for hosting a myriad of electrifying garage-rock shows. White Mystery were the first to appear onstage, blasting through a fairly short set of fuzzy psych-rock that certainly woke up the audience and set the stage for their fellow Chicagoans in Twin Peaks, but not before it was Hinds’ turn to fill our ears.



Hinds are originally from Spain (Madrid to be exact), but at first listen, you might think they sound like they’re from Southern California. They mix in elements of classic rock ‘n’ roll and lo-fi pop, and they’re not afraid to pick up the pace if it gets folks to dance. As co-headliners on this night, a large contingency — full of singing fans and a lot of dedicated enthusiasm — was there to see Hinds play.

To close the show, indie-garage rockers Twin Peaks took the stage to a blaring applause and got right down to business, playing crowd favorites and a good portion of their 2016 LP Down in Heaven. They seemed to be right in their element in a city like SF, which has churned out a number of psych-rock artists from Ty Segall to Thee Oh Sees — and it’s clear that their legacy is in good hands for now.
