North Carolina’s Toke, for starters, is a doom/stoner rock (duh) three-piece that deftly melds its metal intensity with a rewarding penchant for blues infusion. You can dig Toke’s music at tokenc.bandcamp.com.
Greenbeard, hailing from ATX, come with the sludgy, deep-dish stoner fuzz too, but with a psychedelic, trance-inducing approach. Finally, Nashville’s Howling Giant will round out the bill, offering up its mind-expanding, sci-fi/fantasy-influenced brand of searing space rock. Preview Greenbeard and Howling Giant’s music at greenbeard.bandcamp.com and howlinggiant.bandcamp.com, respectively.
Free, Thu Aug 23, 9pm, The Mix, 2423 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 735-1313, themix-sa.com.
