Dreamy local act Geisha Facade bring their debut record You Went To Space, Good Bye Dear to Kung Fu Necktie tonight. Zoe Tanner and Jordan Dupree mastered a colorfully hypnotic slowdown on lead single “Head,” calling to mind the glitzy daze of Beach House and the nostalgic drawl of Lana Del Rey but mixing in their own fun-mirror psych to shift it just a little left of center. Stream that track below and pick up tickets for the 21+ show here.
