Fu Manchu, Lord Dying and Witchburn

Like marijuana, stoner rock will probably always be with us. And that's comforting. That a band like Fu Manchu can sustain a 25-year career brings one a sense of stability in this volatile world. The SoCal group doesn't scale the dizzying heights of Kyuss or Monster Magnet, but over 10 albums they've created a solid body of work with few seeds or stems. Burly, furry riffage descended from Black Sabbath and Deep Purple buttressed by boogie-funk rhythms is a formula as recession-proof as pizza... and weed. Fu Manchu reliably delivers those heavy, hedonistic vibes like some kind of Pagliacci of stoner rock—but without the cheese. Tonight they perform all of 1996's In Search of... DAVE SEGAL
