Mixing psychedelic, stoney '70s rock with hypnotic, ambient fuzz, Dead Meadow draws on the past to plan their future. With a new album coming out this spring, Warble Womb on The End Records/Xemu, the group sets off on an early mini-tour through the state, making a stop at Alex's Bar this week. They gave fans a quick taste of what's to come with a single titled "Mr. Chesty," showcasing the band's dreamy acoustic, and in some opinions, more appealing side. They play this night with support from tourmates Strangers Family Band and Matthew J. Tow, both on co-run Xemu.
