Dead Meadow

Dead Meadow's heavy psych powerhouse laid waste to Blackoutfest over the weekend, and they'll do the same to The Basement, 391 Neil Ave., tonight. Third-hand info from reliable sources suggests tonight's opener, Imaad Wasif, also was rad at the Athens rock extravaganza. And you know The Main Street Gospel is gonna bring it. This will be well worth your $12. Doors open at 7 p.m.; MSG starts at 8.
