Black Tabs Find the Blues In a Noisy Haze of Psych-Rock

Black Tabs Find the Blues In a Noisy Haze of Psych-Rock

With fuzzed-out, distorted rock guitar, almost tribal sounding drums, and a vocalist that could quite possibly be the love child of Layne Staley and Grace Slick (unconfirmed), the Black Tabs sound like an acid trip in some early ‘70s garage. It’s heavy, cathartic, raw, and even psychedelic. Head down to Frank’s on Colorado @ 4th on April 13th, crack open a Lone Star, and take a dose of the Black Tabs. They hit the stage around 11:15, $6 cover. Also playing: Scorpion Child and L F Knighton.
