Hi my name is Mike Beyer operating online since 2007 as MindsiMedia. One of the slogans Iv'd used over the years is "third eye for the human race". Which means there's not some little niche I fit into. I'm interested in movies, politics, history, music. You can say I'm a cultural historian of the 20th century. To fully explore my world beyond this blog visit the web portal at. http://www.mindsimedia.info/

Roky Erickson "You're Gonna Miss Me" , 13th Floor Elevators And More
Wicker Park is a hip community on
Chicago's north side and every summer they have their annual street
party/festival. There is always a lot of good times, food, drink,
people and music. One of the highlights of 2013 fest was a rare
appearance by legendary psychedelic pioneer Roky Erickson. In 1966 he
was a founding member of the Austin Texas band 13th Floor Elevators
when he coined the term psychedelic rock. Their first 45 produced the
bands biggest hit "Your Gonna Miss Me". Which Roky played
as the finale of Sunday night's show.
