Hailing from West Oakland's own historic 7th street, the Hypnotist Collectors have made long strides in only one year. Formed at the dawn of 2010, they are quickly creating a buzz in the SF Bay area as being an exciting live rock n' roll band. And we're not talking modern rock. Instead they bring a refreshing and unique take on 60's inspired American blues and folk. It's familiar, yet somehow hard to pin down their sound. Just standing in the audience of one of their live shows you will hear others talking of CCR, Neil Young & Crazyhorse, the Black Crowes, and the Band. With their debut LP, Worn Out Factory, set to be released in May, be sure to catch them when they travel through your town.
