What is Locus Pocus? A question, an affirmation, a soothing psychic balm in a world gone mad. We all strive for answers to life’s most vexing questions- Why do bad things happen to good people? What does it mean to live a virtuous life? Why won’t my girlfriend dance with me? Some seek refuge in the divine. Others, Scientology. Locus Pocus strives to transcend these fleeting ephemera and inhabit a truly higher plane of being, one pulsing with the driving rhythms of drummer Michael Kipnis and bassist Daniel de Lorimier. Amid the shallow decadence of modern society, submit to the commanding authority of George S. Rosenthal’s guitar and the spellbinding keyboard of Daniel Markowitz. The world is on fire, and you can hear it in Vivian Cook’s voice.
Conceived in the depths of a Bay Area fever dream, Locus Pocus is the response to the question you were too puny and afraid to ask. It’s the voice in the distance that lures you outside of the cave and into the light. The extra dimension that keeps you from hurtling over the cliff like so many walruses who came before you.
Abandon your friends, say farewell to your family- they’re but thinly-veiled witches who want nothing more than for you to stray from the one true path. Let your mind peel away like a gently blooming onion and allow Locus Pocus to do the thinking for you.
