Washington, D.C based, fuzzy, garage-psych rockers DEAD MEADOW celebrate their '20th Anniversary' at Snuff Lane

Dead Meadow

Dead Meadow's unique marriage of Sabbath riffs, dreamy layers of guitar-fuzz bliss, and singer Jason Simon's high-pitched melodic croon have won over psychedelic pop/rock and stoner rock fans alike. Although the band's members met while attending all-ages shows in and around Washington, D.C.'s punk/indie scene, the trio draws more of its sound from such classic rock legends as Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. The trio formed in the fall of 1998 out of the ashes of local indie rock bands the Impossible 5 and Coulour, with singer/guitarist Simon, bassist Steve Kille, and drummer Mark Laughlin. The three members set out to fuse their love of early-'70s hard rock and '60s psychedelia with their love of fantasy and horror writers J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft.

They released their six-song debut album in 1999 on Fugazi bassist Joe Lally's Tolotta Records and a joint vinyl release on D.C. indie label Planaria Records. In 2001, the band released its second and third albums, Howls from The Hills and Dead Meadow, on Tolotta. Within a relatively short period, the D.C. trio received offers to tour with everyone from local D.C. hipsters The Make-Up to seedy psychedelic rockers Brian Jonestown Massacre; eventually, they landed the opening slot for high-profile indie veterans Guided by Voices. The group was also invited to record live for longtime cutting-edge British radio personality John Peel for BBC Radio One. Got Live If You Want It! arrived in 2002; that year, the band lost Laughlin and found a new drummer in Stephen McCarty.

The band moved to Matador for 2003's breakthrough Shivering King and Others. Cory Shane joined the band in time for 2005's Feathers. Their fifth studio album, Old Growth, followed in 2007. In 2010, Dead Meadow released Three Kings, a live album and concert film in the tradition of The Song Remains the Same. Later that same year, an Australian tour was announced that would include original drummer Mark Laughlin, eventually developing into a full-on reunion tour of the U.S. and Europe and Laughlin's permanent return to the band as 2011 began. The group spent a long, patient time self-producing and recording 2013's epic double-album-length release Warble Womb, the first Dead Meadow album made by the all-original lineup since 2001.

The Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk

"Welsh psychedelic rockers, The Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk, (‘milk‘ for short) have only been going for a couple of years but are already causing a stir. It’s difficult to put a single genre to the trio, they are a sort of mishmash of stoner-rock, psychedelia, metal, and funk – a weird but wonderful concoction that goes together exceptionally well."


Trans Van Santos

“SF Psych-Rock Mystic” with a shifting psychedelic ensemble whose rotating membership includes members of Dead Meadow, Patti Smith band, Afrofunk, Calexico, The Blank Tapes, and other west coast luminaries. The LA Weekly credits TVS with “Re-inventing Western Exotica” while Time Out New York claims that TVS is “The perfect soundtrack to your next Be-In.”

Limited tickets remaining for this massive celebration of glorious psych-rock forces.
