2/2: The Entrance Band at the Beachland

Posted By on Wed, Jan 27, 2010 at 4:53 PM

California psych-rockers the Entrance Band’s pedigree doesn’t quite fit the mold of most sun- and pot-stoked groups. Frontman Guy Blakeslee (a Baltimore transplant who spent a chunk of his musical career in Chicago) recorded a handful of solo albums as Entrance, and bassist Paz Lenchantin was in A Perfect Circle and Billy Corgan’s short-lived Zwan. On their self-titled debut album (which came out last year), the trio crawls through a set of long mid-tempo songs that are heavy on mind-bending guitar solos and coated in a layer of sludge. “You Must Turn” concludes with sustained notes hanging in the wind, but tracks like “You’re So Fine,” a howling blues, reveal the band’s true affinity. Here, Blakeslee leads his group to a point of no return that looks a hell of a lot better from a distance. The Entrance Band play the Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124) at 9 p.m. Lights and the Cloud Nothings open. Tickets: $10. — Michael Gallucci
