Lovers of early-aughts garage rock will love the Allah-Las, the Los Angeles group who landed on Coachella’s lineup this year. But for those of us who couldn’t stomach the sickening Coachella ticket prices (or who missed the three-hour window before tickets sold out), the group will be rounding its way through the South this week. The Allah-Las fold ’60s-style psychedelia into their stripped-down sound, making for a sonic experience equal parts rough and groovy. Some songs, like their latest single, “Hereafter,” are meandering exercises in musical play, while others, like 2012’s “Busman’s Holiday,” take a more classic-rock approach, even sprinkling in country elements for good measure. That kind of musical mixing should play well with a broader local audience whose tastes are chopped and screwed like the city itself. Plus, a band like this is meant to be heard in a gritty, freeway-locked venue like Walters. Go see them.
