The Crazy World of Arthur Brown

If Brown—the masked performer behind 1968 psych-rock touchstone “Fire”—seemed too mythical to be real, a few, lucky Las Vegans caught a glimpse of Sasquatch in the wild last year. The 74-year-old singer, who has rarely hit the road since the old days, brought his band to the Joint for August’s Psycho Las Vegas festival, which found him donning a variety of headdresses and robes (naturally) and dancing with female dancers who looked to be a third his age, and were, at times, twirling balls of actual fire (of course).

Good news for longtime fans, or those simply curious about the spectacle: Brown’s first full U.S. tour since 1969 will find its way back to the Hard Rock Hotel this week, for a headlining gig at intimate club Vinyl. Also in the plus column, New York City psych warriors White Hills (of memorable 2010 Beauty Bar patio-set fame) are on the bill, along with rising Cincinnati stoner-rockers Electric Citizen. If you have some face paint in your medicine cabinet, now’s a good time to dig it out. With White Hills, Electric Citizen. $24-$30.
