Austin, Texas-based psych-rockers Black Angels have been recognized by style magazines like Esquire
. But "Don't Play With Guns," the new single form the band's new album, Indigo Meadow
, is less concerned with fashion and all about fuzzy guitars, agro drumming and a '60s garage rock-meets-futuristic no man's land sonic bombast. They play The Orange Peel on Friday, April 5. Allah-Las and Elephant Stone open. The latter was formed by sitarist/bassist Rishi Dhir, and at this year's SXSW they were named a five-day highlight by NPR’s Bob Boilen (read an interview with Elephant Stone at mountainx.com). Just one of many reasons to get to the show early. 9 p.m., $16/$18. http://theorangepeel.net. Photo by Courtney Chavanell
