      EVENT DETAILS
      Black Mountain

      with Ryley Walker
      Black Mountains Stephen McBean turned 16 after Woodstock but before Vargstarted burning down Norwegian churches. And yet, until just two short yearsago, McBean had lived his entire adolescence and adult life without a properdrivers license, that first and most coveted ticket to personal independence.Black Mountains new album, Destroyer, is imbued with all that wild-ass freedomand newfound agency (and anxiety and fear) that comes with one's first timebehind the wheel.Destroyer, named after the discontinued single-run 1985 Dodge Destroyer musclecar, is structured around the feeling of driving a hot rod. The album exists in themiddle of the early-to-mid 80s Los Angeles war between punk and hair metal - itsexhilarating, spirited, and dangerous. Throughout, youthful themes run rampant:Boogie Lover cruises down the Sunset Strip, Horns Arising is a fill-up at adesert gas station just in time to see a UFO hovering near a mesa, and High Riserounds out a sense of teenage discovery.To create Destroyer, McBean shacked himself up in his rehearsal space andinvited over friends from the endless rocknroll highway, bringing to life 22 songs.While some were laid back into shallow graves to dig up once again at a laterdate, the others were left above ground and polished and given life, sometransformed by longtime band member Jeremy Schmidt. This generation of BlackMountain also sees new members Rachel Fannan (Sleepy Sun) and AdamBulgasem (Dommengang & Soft Kill) as well as familiar collaborators KliphScurlock (Flaming Lips), Kid Millions (Oneida) and John Congleton (St. Vincent,Swans). Collectively, theres a renewed vitality to Black Mountain on Destroyer a seasoned, veteran of heady hard rock thats found new, young muscles to flexand roads to explore.
