When: Fri., Dec. 6, 7 p.m. 2013
Stoner, psychedelic space rockers Monster Magnet stop by Atlanta on Fri., Dec. 6, during the group’s first North American tour in a decade supporting the recently released album The Last Patrol. Sonically and lyrically the album features the same doomy atmosphere, steeped in layers of dark sci-fi lyrics and cosmic weirdness that’s been the group’s M.O. since 1989. Frontman Dave Wyndorf’s Hawkwind meets early Alice Cooper shtick hasn’t changed over the years, but they are rightfully revered veterans of a genre they pretty much own, and they always bring it live.
