Tue. Feb. 4 | Washington, D.C., psych troupe Dead Meadow — led by Jason Simon, nephew of Treme creator David Simon — went silent after 2008's Old Growth, its fifth stoner-rock sprawl in eight years. Last year's double-LP Warble Womb reunites the original lineup for a dead-mellow take on the band's wandering bass spirituals. Sunrise:Sunset:, Birthstone and DJ Gris Gris open at 9 p.m. at Siberia.
Sun. Feb. 9 | Athens, Ga.'s country rock-infused Future Birds released second album Baba Yaga, a collection of often plaintive and sometimes foreboding songs, on Fat Possum in 2013. Promised Land Sound and Tedo Stone open at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
