Like the best heavy psych rock bands before them, such as early Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer and Vanilla Fudge, local group The Flying Eyes has those enveloping, heavy, fuzzy guitar tones that are deployed in heady riffs and winding solos. Founded in 2007, the band got its name from “a 1962 science fiction novel about giant, disembodied eyes that descend from outer space to control humanity.” Alas, the band is hanging it up after tonight’s show, and this being a psychedelic rock band and all, it’s only appropriate that our national day dedicated to all things cannabis, 4/20, be the date of their final gig.
They’ll be joined at Metro Gallery by other similarly dabbling in blues-y, stone-y, garage-y rock: Haze Mage, Heavy Temple, Lazlo Lee & The Motherless Children and Tombtoker. The title on the Facebook event page, “Stoned to Death 420,” is a pretty good indicator of things to come.
7 p.m., The Metro Gallery, 1700 N. Charles St., (410) 244-0899, themetrogallery.net, $12.
