Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland, OH
Get stoned on drone with The Black Angels, an Austin band that’s picked up pieces of bands like The Velvet Underground and Brian Jonestown Massacre to forge a sound that’s hypnotic, lusty, and primal. Their newest album, Indigo Meadow, weaves like a rattlesnake, stomps like an elephant, and bury you like quicksand. The Black Angels’s riffs are made of pure id, refined and honed for your pleasure. We’re not kidding. It’s music for the beginning of a passionate love affair or for the end of the world. Listen to Indigo Meadow in its entirety right here. Taking their cues from early Rolling Stones and The Animals are the Allah Las. Named after one of the great tunes in all of psychedelic rock -- The Stone Roses’ Elephant Stone -- are Elephant Stone, fronted by the High Dials’ Rishi Dhir. Expect this Indian-Canadian musician to bust out some serious electric sitar tonight. Tune in, drop out, or whatever you need to do tonight; just make sure you don’t miss this one, rock fans!
