The Love Dimension: That name alone conjures up the late 1960s, when the most far-out music was coming out of the Haight-Ashbury district and was best experienced on an, ahem, alternate plane. No surprise, then, that this psych-rock collective is originally from San Francisco, and their fuzzed-out sound harkens back to some of the Bay Area’s most famous psychedelic groups: Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape, the Grateful Dead. Founded by frontman Jimmy L. Dias, who’s backed by a constantly rotating roster of musicians — some shows feature only a few members; others will boast a dozen or so — the Love Dimension is more than just a throwback act, as elements of ’90s alt-rock and contemporary electronica sneak their way into the music. Fans of the Brian Jonestown Massacre should be in heaven.
