Monday To-Do: White Hills

WHITE HILLS
9 p.m., Stickyz. $6.

The bookers at Stickyz know their psych/space-rock, treating us to the regular killer band over the last few years. Head-rattling shows from Black Mountain and School of Seven Bells come to mind and we're confident that this gig from monolithic drone rockers White Hills may float to the top of that heavy stack. The latest album, "H-p1," is the band's crowning achievement in a long, messy trail of disparate singles, EPs, vinyl and digital-only releases: all heavy as hell itself. Molding Eno ambience, skewered Merzbow boldness and a head bang that's more Boris than Black Sabbath but long-haired nonetheless, White Hills are, no doubt, one of the premiere experimental acts around. The band plays with another top-notch psych-act, the newly-exploding Sleepy Sun, a six-piece psychedelia collective from California that marries that well-trod Led Zep sound to a new freak-folk earthiness. Opening the night: Iron Tongue. Pysch/metalists in town know Iron Tongue. They're awesome.
