Review: Vanishing Twin at Rickshaw Stop, March 29, 2002
Rickshaw Stop, San Francisco, Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
By Gage Kenady
After three reschedulings of their original March 23, 2020 performance date, all who attended agreed it was well worth the wait. The four-piece psychedelic pop band, who incorporate elements of tropicalía, kosmische rock, afrofunk, avant-garde and library music, presented selections from throughout their career — including their latest release Ookii Gekkou. And with their moody, psychedelic lighting and perfect sound, the group cast a spell over Rickshaw Stop. Truly otherworldly, and kudos to whoever managed the sound!
Openers Almond Joy were an unexpected delight — and special thanks to fellow local act The Umbrellas for coming through in a pinch!
Thanks to Rickshaw Stop and to KXSF staff and listeners/supporters who made the show. It was wonderful to see you all.
