Acid Mothers Temple and Tjutjuna march the astral plane

Known for seamlessly switching between eras and genres of psych-rock from album to album and set to set, Japanese rock band Acid Mothers Temple returns to Atlanta in support of its recently rereleased Cometary Orbital Drive to 2199 LP and in anticipation of the upcoming In Search of Lost Divine Ark LP on Important. While the band's slew of side projects and experiments plays off the central hub (see Acid Mothers Afrirampo, Acid Mothers Temple & the Cosmic Inferno, Acid Mothers Temple & the Pink Ladies Blues, Acid Mothers Temple & the Incredible Strange Band, et. al.), Acid Mothers Temple proper brings a full-on assault to the senses, blending elements of krautrock and 60s psychedelic rock.

Openers Tjutjuna bring an updated take on synth-inspired psych rock, mixing spaced-out grooves with electronic textures. The Denver, Colo. quartet's upcoming Westerner LP is the follow-up to its 2010 debut, an album with maybe the most ridiculous art you've ever seen.

$10-$12. 8:30 p.m. The Drunken Unicorn, 736 Ponce de Leon Place.
