Eight Gigs: Battle Hag
Thu., March 23, 8 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $7-$10
Battle Hag keeps stomping its way through Sacramento bills, crushing audiences and overloading fog machines everywhere it treads. The local masters of shamanic doom recently wrapped up a debut record over at Earth Tone Studios, and while this set isn’t necessarily to celebrate that, there’s no harm in buying a few extra beers in hyped anticipation of the hypnotic heaviness to come. Bay Area doom freaks Tvsk and Owain, all the way from Tijuana, play as well, along with the local fuzzmeisters in Chrome Ghost.
