Since 2013, Milwaukee musician Andrew Shelp has given the city a loud, fuzzed-out, and reverb-drenched gift every spring: Milwaukee Psych Fest. Returning for its sixth year May 4 and 5 at Boone & Crocket (new location) and Company Brewing, the psych-celebrating blowout will once again assemble a dizzying array of talent from around the globe. Want to lose yourself while listening to local acts like Calliope and Slow Walker? You’ve got it. Want to hear groups from across the U.S., Canada, and even Chile?
