Peyote Coyote Brings Psychedelic Rock to Jacksonville

Experience them live on March 3

Psychedelic rock trio Peyote Coyote is hitting the road on their first tour of the Southeast this March. Hitting cities like Savannah, Charleston and Asheville, the band looks to be on the road for 12 days to create buzz for their upcoming release, “Microdos.”

Guitarist and vocalist Ryan Huseman, bassist Jake Stuart and drummer Cari Gee say they draw their influences from an array of music, past and present. From the likes of The Doors, The Beatles, Band of Horses and The Black Angels, the group creates a hypnotic blend of old and new psychedelia.

The group released its debut self-titled EP in April of 2016, which Jacksonville’s VOID magazine calls “a fast-paced revival of ‘60s psychedelic rock that’s then mixed in with elements of modern indie rock and wrapped in a grungy lo-fi sound that goes down smooth.” The second installment in their discography, “Microdos,” is set to be officially released this spring – however, during the tour, the band will be offering limited-edition advanced copies of the album with alternate artwork.

Fans of psych and garage can enjoy the ‘60s revival sounds of Peyote Coyote on March 3 at Rain Dogs. Local band Gov Club will be opening the show, which begins at 8 p.m.

“Peyote Coyote” is available to stream and purchase on Bandcamp ( as well as popular streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music. Preview the show with this live video performance of their song “Evil Things.” (
