Pterodactyl, Black Ladies, Paper Mice, Hearts of Darknesses Recommended Soundboard

When: Thu., March 26, 9 p.m. 2009

With the number of vaguely tribal psychedelic art-rock bands that have come out of Brooklyn in the past few years, you could be excused for wondering if some part of the city had been replaced by a magical woods where face-painted boys and befeathered girls spend their days basking in the sun and getting blasted on salvia and their nights sitting around a bonfire and scaring the raccoons with electric guitars and a dozen effects pedals. Pterodactyl has always been one of the better products of this unlikely scene. The band’s skills at tweaked-and-trippy sound design are top-notch, and underneath the gnarliness are songs with real backbones—a bunch of the tunes on their upcoming Worldwild (Brah) would still sound strong played by a regular old punk band. Black Ladies, Paper Mice, and Hearts of Darknesses open. —Miles Raymer
