Cost: $21 - $37

Age limit: 21+

Where else but New Jersey’s grimy streets and greasy shoreline could have spawned a party-all-the-time stoner doom band like the Atomic Bitchwax, who take an obsession with Rush-style prog ‘n’ pomp and meld it with the slogging sonic backdrop of far more vicious acts like San Diego’s own Cattle Decapitation. If you enjoy the comic book rock of bands like Monster Magnet (which shares two members with Bitchwax, singer-bassist Chris Kosnik and drummer Bob Pantella), or pop-culture satirists like Mr. Bungle, you could do a lot worse that catching Atomic Bitchwax at the Belly Up on June 9, where the bill includes the Sword, a stoner metal band from Austin, Texas.
