The Black Angels in April (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
The Black Angels

"It was a welcome sensory overload, ears full of rapturous music, eyes bright with swirling luminescence, inhaling with every breath the cloying smells of sweat and marijuana, every person crammed together, swaying as if one large amorphous being. They left you feeling lost, adrift in their music, tethered and grounded only by the rattling sensation that vibrated through the floors, walls, and ceiling from the beat. All in all, it was an intense experience that I am very glad to have witnessed." [Julia]

The Black Angels have scheduled a NJ show at Maxwell's on July 15 with The Sadies, the day before the Black Angels play the 4Knots Music Festival at South Street Seaport. Tickets for the Maxwell's show go on sale Friday (6/10) at noon.

The 4Knots lineup will also feature appearances by Davilla 666 and Oberhofer and still has more artists TBA.

The Maxwell's show is also one day before the Sadies play Brooklyn Bowl with Andre Williams. The Sadies then take a break until August when they play some shows with Jesse Sykes. All dates are listed below.
