Rising indie Austin, Texas band Black Angels will be making their raucous debut
in Israel tonight at the Barby Club in Tel Aviv.
Riding on the crest of
their breakout fourth album, Indigo Meadow, the neo-psychedelic hard rocking
quartet has been likened to the Velvet Underground, the Black Rebel Motorcycle
Club and The Raveonettes. The band formed in 2004, taking their name from the
Velvets’ song “The Black Angel’s Death Song,” and in 2006 released their debut
album, Passover. Their uncompromising, buzz-drone sound has won them widespread
acclaim and slots at SXSW and All Tomorrow’s Parties.
Opening the show,
at the special invitation of Black Angels’ vocalist Alex Maas, will be the
Berlin-based Israeli band Charlie Megira & The Bet She’an Valley
