Who’s on? Jacco Gardner with alternative rockers Calvin Love and Doug Tuttle and surf band Littlefoot

For who? People who love their drugs or love feeling like they would if they took them

When, where and for how much? At 8 p.m. June 14 at The Middle East Upstairs, 472 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square. Tickets are $12.

Who are they? Jacco Gardner is a neo-psych/baroque pop artist from the Netherlands. He creates a unique sound by combining the sounds of harpsichord, strings, flutes and other classical instruments with raw psychedelic effects. He’s touring behind his most recent album, “Hypnophobia.”

Are they any good? “Lush, focused and well wrought … without seeming too reverent about its predecessors or anachronistic in its execution,” Now Magazine says. “An engaging, yet still hip-swinging trip,” Mojo says.

I want more: Jacco Gardner is here.
