Scenes From The Monday Night Goat Show at Dan's Silverleaf.

After a rousing set Sunday night at Austin Psych Fest, Goat made their way up to Denton for a considerably more intimate set at Dan's Silverleaf last night.

It must be odd going from playing for thousands at a festival to about 100 people in a small Texas town, but, hey, sometimes that's the way things go. And it didn't keep the Swedish rockers from putting on one of their impeccably intense psychedelic performances.

Seeing Goat perform is a lot like catching Hawkwind back in the '60s, I imagine. The make psychedelic rock music that employs a lot of world music influences — but it's better than that sounds. World music is usually pretty horrible. Goat, however, has somehow found a way to seamlessly blend these parts into their sound.

And, during their Dan's set, with the band decked out from head to toe in weird masks, dashikis and colorful robes, they sounded as big and crazy as that description might lead you to expect.

Meanwhile, visuals were projected across the band and stage in real time with two people manipulating colored liquid and geometric transparencies. And those images cascaded gorgeously over the stage, which was a huge assortment of streamers, tambourines, maracas and various noise-making instruments.

In all, it made for a pretty crazy spectacle — something you shouldn't miss the next time Goat comes through town.

I can't imagine a single person at Dan's last night who regretted making the time for this Monday night display. Regardless of which night of the week this performance happened to fall upon, it would have been a great one.
