The Dream Syndicate were part of the 1980’s Paisley Underground, a neo-psychedelic like revival centred around Los Angeles, California.  The band broke up in 1989 but guitarist/songwriter Steve Wynn continued to make music throughout the years.  This show at the Garrison proved to be a terrific re-union show, featuring all original members (Mark Walton on bass, Dennis Duck on drums) except for guitarist Jason Victor.  This was part of their international tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of their first album, “The Days Of Wine And Roses”.  Victor’s mesmerizing guitar playing, his interplay with Steve and Steve’s strong vocals, reminiscent of Lou Reed at times, proved that classic songs like these will always stand the test of times.  The band’s performance was enhanced by a pretty cool light show put on by General Chaos.
