Zen Mother began in a windowless warehouse in Charlottesville not long before its members, Monika Khot and Adam Wolcott Smith, left town—creating a void in the local indie/experimental music scene—for Seattle a couple of years ago. The West Coast has been a nurturing place for Khot (of Nordra and Invisible Hand) and Smith (of Invisible Hand/Y’ALL) and their constant musical exploration. The heavy psych, avant-rock, electronic goth sonic landscapes of Zen Mother’s newly released full-length debut, I Was Made to Be Like Her, was recently praised by The Stranger as “one of the most distinctively tenebrous and beautiful rock records likely to come out of Seattle in 2017.”

Wednesday, July 26. $7, 9pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
