Acid King are a stoner metal band originating from San Francisco, California. Forming in 1993 by frontwoman Lori S.

along with bassist Peter Lucas and drummer Joey Osbourne the trio quickly earned a reputation among the stoner scene for their heavy low-end sound, their spacey atmosphere and Lori's distinctive vocal delivery.

"First live album by Acid King. Mixed by Billy Anderson, mastered by Justin Weis. Art by Richard Schouten based on the original poster art from the 2011 show.

"A review from Paul Robertson at the time: " As punters filtered into the venue, the smell of hashish washed over the crowd, and as a projection of Horror and Biker flicks was kicked into motion, the blistering opening riff of 2 Wheel Nation splintered through the crowd.

As the cosmic riff grooved along, Lori S' sultry and hypnotic vocals took hold, and soon the bands sheer presence and powerful sound became captivating.The bands lumbering, bluesy sound perfectly evoked the atmosphere of the festival and through many of their tracks, the bass rumbled through the jiving crowd.

Through each planet destroying riff a multitude of scorching lights shone over the crowd, soon the room was a hot, sweaty vortex of sound.

While the band played a wide range of songs from their numerous albums, it was great to hear Silent Circle, Electric Machine, Busse Woods and Sunshine and Sorrow in a live setting, the stunning sound system was incredibly immersive and complemented the music perfectly."
