Monday: The Sword, Purson, From Beyond

May 16 

8 p.m., Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069,, $19.

Innovators in the early 2000s stoner metal scene, The Sword surprised their fans late last year with their fifth album “High Country,” a distinctly funkier and more Southern departure from their previous Sabbath-y, riff-driven stuff. Whether you’re devoted to The Sword as they were when they opened for Metallica, or if you’re already nodding your head to the new sound, catch them tonight with London psych-rockers Purson (pictured) and Sword’s fellow Austinites, From Beyond.
