Mic Check: Black Mountain at the Grog Shop on Thursday

On their excellent new CD, In the Future, Canadian band Black Mountain run through a bunch of different hippie sounds: One minute they’re playing goat-petting folk music, the next minute they’re lighting up their bongs and settling back for 16-minute proggy epics like “Bright Lights.” But the four guys and one gal who make up Black Mountain are at their best when they get all stoner-rock on our asses. Album opener “Stormy High” churns, chops, and buzzes, and sets a tone the rest of In the Future tries to keep up with. No wonder they take so many breaks along the way to stop and smell the poppies: They’re actually coming down. -- Michael Gallucci Black Mountain performs at 9 p.m. Thursday, March 6, at the Grog Shop, 2785 Euclid Heights Boulevard in Cleveland Heights. Tickets are $10, available by calling 216-321-5588. For a preview, listen to “Angels” below.
