Austin Psych Fest 2012 was held at the east-side location of legendary music venue Emo’s in conjunction with the Beauty Ballroom. The 5th annual festival featured a 61 band lineup headlined by Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, and The Black Lips along with Meat Puppets, Olivia Tremor Control, Thee Oh Sees, Bombino, and many more. The 2012 festival kicked off with pre-parties at two of our favorite Austin music venues Red 7 and The Mohawk. The 2012 festival continued to expand the size and scope of the festival, with the biggest crowd and most acclaimed lineup yet.
