Today's Local Music: Ty Segall

According to Ty Segall, his third album, Melted, sounds like “cherry cola, Sno-Cones and taffy.” Segall uses acoustic and electric sounds, distortion and memorable choruses in order to make time “melt” away. He’s playing Sunday, October 14th, at the Treasure Island Music Festival. We don’t know the time, but the music starts at noon and goes until 9pm. The festival has a no re-entry policy, so just show up!
