Black Mountain & Ryley Walker played Bowery Ballroom (pics, setlist)
Black Mountain and Ryley Walker are on tour together now, and they recently played NYC shows at Bowery Ballroom (11/15) and Knitting Factory Brooklyn (11/16). We caught the former. This is a pretty amazing double bill, as both Black Mountain and Ryley Walker combine the sounds of modern indie rock and classic psychedelic rock in different ways. Ryley started out as a '60s-style folk singer, but he's evolved into someone who basically straddles the line between indie and jam band, especially live. And Black Mountain continue to be a genuinely heavy band in a Sabbath/Zeppelin kind of way, but they really know how to make it their own, and that was on full display at Bowery Ballroom.
Pictures are in the gallery above. Black Mountain's setlist below.
