About

Blue Hat and Sunshine (c) 2015 Holly TroyWhat is a psychedelic punk rock yogini? It’s the best way I can describe my life if I was going to put a label on it. I’m a singer/musician, writer, painter, and yogini. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, and breath.

This blog is an experiment—a journal of sorts, with scraps of things that thrill me or make me pause. Sometimes it’s a list of my upcoming classes, essays, poems, journal entries, stories, music, culture, alternative healing, video clips, Amazonia, permaculture, yoga, meditation, Beauty and Love, synchronicities—my musings tend to sway toward these things.

I post a few times a month, if not a few times every week. I hope you come by and visit, and comment.

Om shanti~

Grooving to the Love Vibration and a Past Blast

Videos from my musical past are starting to surface. I knew they were out there – it’s just been a long time since I’ve played or seen any live stuff.

I tried to convince myself that it was ok that I didn’t have any videos from shows I’ve done – but I have to be honest – coming across this video has really tickled me!

I remember this show. It was put on by Ivy Vale and was a tribute to Roky Erickson, founder of the 13th Floor Elevators. Ivy created these events called the Mind’s Eye, and this was the last Mind’s Eye event that I am aware of. Super groovy cuddly party vibe! I think this show happened in April, 1995, at a club called The Lion’s Den.

I think there is a video of the entire set – this is the second song of the set. It’s called Are You Gonna Be There (At the Love In) by the Chocolate Watchband.

The Halfbreeds are:
Francis Cricket (Dr. Francis DiDonato)- Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals
Jamey Evans – Drums, Backing Vocals
Kate St. Claire – Bass
S. Frog (Sanford Santacroche) – Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals
Holly Troy – Vocals
