The Vacant Lots [221]

4/18/11: The Vacant Lots are a garage-psych duo that formed in Burlington during the summer of 2008. Three albums later, the band's line-up has changed (drummer Brian MacFadyen was replaced by Frank Zammiello), but their hypnotizing sound remains as they prepare to play at the the prestigious Austin Psych Festival at the end of April.

Eva caught up with The Vacant Lots' frontman and lyrical poet, Jared Artaud, for an interview in the basement of Seven Days (complete with the band's  signature projection of trippy images). Back in late February, she also filmed their performance at Club Metronome in Burlington.

Music: The Vacant Lots, Hypnotized, "Confusion," "Cadillac," & "2009" and According to the Gospel, "Let Me Out"
