ATL Concert Roundup — February 17-23

The Black Angels

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

The Black Angels
w/ Roky Erickson & the Hounds of Baskerville, Golden Animals
Saturday, February 22
Terminal West – 887 West Marietta Street NE in Atlanta 30318
Admission $23 ADV / $25 DOS / Purchase Tickets

In many ways the Black Angels’ music is about history and time. The psychedelic torchbearers have never been known for making bold evolutions in sound, but if you allow yourself to succumb to their 60s-inspired lava lamp heroics, there are few in the business who can conjure up such a mesmerizing swirl of eerie drones and pulsating stoner guitar drama. The Texas rockers have always hidden their surprisingly deft songwriting chops beneath layers of foggy atmospherics, and while their latest effort, Indigo Meadow, continues to forgo modern flourishes or the need to genre hop in any meaningful way, it does make an effort to peel aways the murky shadows and let some of the hooks shine through. The band will hit the stage at Terminal West this Saturday night, bringing along a lineup that features psych-rock pioneer and fellow Austinite Roky Erickson & the Hounds of Baskerville. Brooklyn-based newcomers Golden Animals open the show.
