Earthless/Ruby the Hatchet/Relaxer

When: Fri., Dec. 16, 9 p.m. 2016

Jam bands pride themselves in the art of reaping endless crop from a single acre of land. But San Diego’s Earthless refuses to remain gravity-bound. A potent combination of psychedelia and headbanging blues rock, the 15-year-old trio’s three studio albums consist of no more than four tracks each. But every song starts as a low rumble and builds to a powerful takeoff: drums mark the pulse of beating wings while warbling guitars screech and scream from above. Earthless is venerated by many as the greatest modern psych rock experience. Imagine you’re traveling to the historic Fillmore Auditorium for this legendary performance at Cleveland’s own Grog Shop.
