Long popular in indie havens like Austin, Texas, garage, surf and psych are now enjoying an upswing across the country. Teaming with Asheville booking agents Onward Indian Touring, Tiger Mountain is drawing much of its lineup from California-based Burger Records and its sister label Lolipop Records.
The Brooklyn-based garage-rock duo opened for Darwin Deez at The Grey Eagle last weekend, performing a high-energy set covering ‘60s influences from girl groups and dance crazes to surf guitar and garage rock. Photo from the band’s website.
