  • Neo-psychedelic artists Weird Owl come to Snug's in New Paltz on October 21.

October 21. From Brooklyn come Weird Owl, formed in 2004. The outfit's stoned droning crosses Pink Floyd and Crazy Horse-saddled Neil Young with the head-nodding heaviosity of newer acts like Dead Meadow and Black Mountain. Although the Owl's nest is in the south, the group has a bit of a local connection in that the majority of their third album, 2009's Build Your Beast a Fire, was recorded and mixed with Bishop Allen's Justin Rice at his Drawing Room studio in Kingston. On the wings of their fourth full-length, 2015's Interstellar Skeletal, the neo-psychedelic warlords touch down at Snug Harbor (aka Snug's) for this levitational evening organized under the "Hudson Valley Psych Fest Presents" banner of the area's foremost drone rockers, It's Not Night: It's Space, who share the bill along with River Cult. 10pm. $4. New Paltz. (845) 255-9800;
