Held in Union Square for the past five years, Deep Heaven Now is a low key music festival bringing some of the best up and coming bands from the shoegaze / psych-rock music scene found on this side of the Mississippi. This festival has its roots in the 90's but after a stint in the Boston area, it faded away. Now in it's fifth year, the list of bands is once again impressive. The folks that put on the event do a nice job of spreading out the set times between P.A.'s Lounge and Precinct. As you will note in the above concert poster, the shows at Precinct start at the top of the hour and PA's sets start 30 minutes thereafter. If you're unfamiliar with the territory, those two venues are barely a 5 minute walk from each other. It makes for a fun day / night of music. Held on both Friday and Saturday this year, both days are just $10 each for access to all this great sonic goodness. Below are a few of the bands we are looking forward to seeing but I'm sure we'll stumble upon some hidden gems day of.
