If you’ve been a fan of drone, psychedelic, or garage rock in the past decade, you’ve undoubtedly come across the name The Black Angels at least a few times. In eight years and four albums, the Austin based band has already achieved a veteran status among the mellow-vibed elite. A name you might be less familiar with, however, is that of their tour mates, Night Beats. Though they have only one full length thus far to their name, 2011’s eponymous Night Beats, the band also has a handful of incredibly popular 7’’s and EPs. Their dynamic sound incorporates influences of garage, psych, blues, and, pointing to the primary influence of their side project (featuring members of The Black Angels), The UFO Club, American soul music. But though the name Night Beats may come from a Sam Cooke record, make no mistake: the band is heavy on the acid psych and dirty garage sound that Austin bands have made famous in recent years. The show is at Town Ballroom with doors at 7:00pm.
