Alibi Picks Sticky Stoner Saturdaze: Weedeater • ASG • Lo-Pan • Black Maria
Catch Wilmington, N.C.-based metal trio Weedeater at Launchpad (618 Central SW) on Saturday. The stoner/sludge stalwart is sweet 16 and continues to crank out concentrated low-end rawk. Fellow Wilmingtonian southern/stoner foursome ASG—signed to Relapse Records and touring in support of their latest release,
Blood Drive—adds to the cacophony. Legendary local metal-worshipper crew Black Maria reps the 505 Marshall stack set. Pop in your earplugs at 9:30 p.m., and make sure to stretch your neck 'cause this 21-and-over gig calls for a limber spine, serious hearing protection and a $12 cover.
