ERSATZ BOLD AS LOVE

The tribute band is a peculiar phenomenon of popular culture mashing adoration, musical and visual emulation, and a good dose of kitsch. The Athens, Georgia, trio Gimme Hendrix – guitarist Eric Keaton, bassist Matt Garrison and drummer Brandon Hicks – deliver a high-volume version of the music of that original “Voodoo Chile”: Jimi Hendrix. Dressed to the nines in hippie threads, the band keeps it on point with dimed-out tube amps, wah pedals and worthy renditions of Hendrix’s music. Keeping in the spirit, dropping 20 hits of (fake, non-psychoactive) blotter acid is strongly encouraged.
