Charity Event Mahgeetah

What better way to spend a Saturday night than seeing live music and supporting women's healthcare? On Saturday, December 17 Mahgeetah bring their mighty, foot-stompin' brand of rock and roll to Brick and Mortar. The show will include special (but yet-to-be-announced) guests, plus Be Calm Honcho, belly-dancing from Little Egypt, and room-shaking sounds from DJ Fela Kutchii. This holiday celebration and fundraiser will benefit Planned Parenthood.

As their name suggests, Mahgeetah worships at the amplified altar of My Morning Jacket, having named their band for the brilliant jam from It Still Moves. But don't mistake their appreciation for Jim James and co. as impersonation — the band delivers electrifying tunes that rouse the spirit and demand a steady, propulsive headbang. Mahgeetah has kept us waiting on a new album since their 2012 debut Heavy Baby, so check them out live or jump into that record over on SoundCloud.

Here's a throwback from Mahgeetah's State EP with "Longshot."
