Oakland’s gods of stoner metal return! The mighty Sleep will be hitting Brooklyn for two special performances at the Masonic Temple on Sept. 6 and 8, with a show in between in Philadelphia’s Starlight Ballroom. Their reunion is years in the making, and they’re only doing a limited number of gigs before members go back to playing in the likes of High On Fire, Om and Neurosis, so if you ever wanted to hear the epic hour-long track “Dopesmoker” live (and haven’t we all?), the time is now. All ages. $25. 8 p.m.
