Seattle psych-rock group performs Monday

The Purrs, a whimsy Seattle psych-rock outfit, will perform from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday at The Stonehouse, located at 107 Sacramento Street, in downtown Nevada City.

The Big Takeover Magazine recently lauded the group as a “fuzz-pop Luna meets Lou Reed” conglomerate of “groove,” the “sweet, up-tempo, drifting shoegaze” type. I

Their most recent album release, “The Boy With Astronaut Eyes,” is The Purrs’ seventh full-length, and follows as their 7” single from Fin Records.

The Purrs engage in multiple harmony vocals (from Jima, also on bass, and Liz Herrin, also on guitars). The dual guitars (Jason Milne and Herrin) shift from punk, to country, and to shoegaze, aided by a strong rhythm section with Craig Keller on drums.
