Case of the Mondays? Get over it - Pink Mountaintops are in town! Don't miss local openers Black Hens who promise to melt faces, blow minds and shred to bits their precious guitars.--- For a taste of their mellower side listen here.

Where does Pink Mountaintops end and Black Mountain begin? Well, it depends on the track. Both of Stephen McBean’s projects journey along the vast and wonderful psychedelic spectrum, lingering in trippy, distorted, shoegaze territory. Black Mountain tend to focus more on epic, heavy/stoner rock as on their self-titled album’s “Don’t Run Our Hearts Around,” but Pink Mountaintops are hardly meek (see: “New Drug Queens”). Both bands are also equally skilled at stirring up intense, primal feelings of lust, love, hope and despair (particularly when Amber Webber, also of Lightning Dust, commands the moment). So why have two groups? Why ask why? There’s something in the water up in Canada and I want to mix some with my whiskey. It’s not enough to just soak up the magic through sound. The Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 9 p.m. Tickets: 24Tix.com
