Sweet Summer Rain

The Main Street Gospel is a Columbus, Ohio based band who mix psych-infused classic rock with dusty country vibes and dirt-stained blues. The band was born in 2005, when Barry Dean–former tambourine shaker for the Brian Jonestown Massacre–began writing songs with longtime friend Ryan Ida. Together with Vug Arakas on guitar and Christian Pierce on drums, the band has a strong sense of understanding and respect for the true roots of rock n’roll. Their sound recalls elements of folk giants The Byrds and Neil Young. In 2008 The Main Street Gospel released a 7" that was recorded and engineered by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and in the summer of 2010 they released their first full length on Tee Pee Records entitled Love Will Have Her Revenge. To date The Main Street Gospel have played several shows with like-minded bands such as Mondo Drag, Naam, Dead Meadow, Hopewell, Sleepy Sun, Floorian and fellow Ohioans Buffalo Killers.
