West End Motel + Ricer

Union Pool , Williamsburg Tuesday December 4 2012 21:00
Turns out Brent Hinds, the guitarist of metal monsters Mastodon—the one who looks like a Nordic god—is interested in more than just fierce, sprawling, prog-minded metal. Here he hits Greenpoint with West End Motel, one of his various side gigs, which favors rangy, slurry, organ-driven alt rock, like a countrified Queens of the Stone Age. Also on tap: the punk-minded hillbilly sounds of local faves the Goddamn Rattlesnake.
