Hot shit this weekend:
Velcro Stars are playing their first local show in months this Friday at Sweetwater in Murfreesboro opening up for Athens-based Dark Meat, whose psychedelic jams fall somewhere between Funhouse-era Stooges and Hawkwind's spaced out free-for-alls.
There's a whole bunch of other stuff going on Saturday (and Friday night too, for that matter), but I'm going to go get my guts rumbled by Zoroaster at the Springwater. Opening up will be new local band Plague of Ages, featuring members of Dave Cloud and the Gospel of Power, Birdfeeder, Bad Friend and Big Nurse. As far as I know, they don't have a MySpace page or anything of the sort, but they sound like a no wave band playing stoner metal songs.
