Colorado’s own power psychedelic-rock trio Cycles has announced a new batch of 2019 tour dates.
The newly added dates will see Cycles perform at Columbus, OH’s Woodlands Tavern on May 15th, followed by stops at Indianapolis, IN’s The Mousetrap (5/17); Ferndale, MI’s Magic Bag (5/23); Milwaukee, WI’s Back Room at Colectivo (5/24); Birmingham, AL’s Zydeco (5/30); Asheville, NC’s Grey Eagle (5/31); and a special Phish after-party at St. Louis, MO’s Bootleg Theatre on June 12th. The three-piece will also make previously announced festival appearances at Masontown, WV’s Domefest (5/16); Chillicothe, IL’s Summer Camp Music Festival (5/26); Bond, CO’s Beanstalk Music Festival (6/27-6/29); and Loveland, CO’s Arise Music & Arts Festival (8/2-8/4).
On April 5th, while opening for Pigeons Playing Ping Pong at Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground, Cycles invited up Dopapod guitarist Rob Compa to lend an extra hand on a cover of Cream‘s “White Room”. Bassist Tucker McClung executed a spot-on vocal lead on the first verse before passing the torch onto drummer Michael Wood, as he held down a snappy groove behind the kit. Moving out of the song’s main theme and into improvisational territory, Compa took a roaring, elevated guitar solo, as Cycles guitarist Patrick Harvey cheered him on. Harvey went on to take a quick-witted, scorching solo himself, followed by both guitarists tearing up the Cream cover in synchronicity.
Following his one-song sit-in with Cycles, Compa later went on to collaborate with headliners Pigeons Playing Ping Pong for an extended take on The Beatles‘ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” into “Lightning”.
