C’mon, feel the noize. Casbah has cavity-rattlers A Place to Bury Strangers and This Will Destroy You, two of the noiziest rock bandz in the biz.
The Strangers’ new one, Worship, is due to drop June 26 via Dead Oceans. TWDY, from San Marcos in Texas, is more into drone tones. Last year’s Tunnel Blanket, their sophomore set, got high marks all around.... Else: The “Chilean Bob Marley,” Gondwana, appears downtown at House of Blues Tuesday night...while post-rock experimentalists Interrobang clang at Soda Bar with Satellite Run.
Belly Up will host this year’s Banding Together, a fundraiser “to give music therapy scholarships, mentorships, and instruments to youth with special needs like autism.” Rock-roll entertainment includes Burning of Rome, Dr. Seahorse, Noise in the Attic, and Nena Anderson.... Free jazz forager and pianist Josh Weinstein’s at the Loft with a quartet that includes the Mattson boys on guitar, drums, and “found objects”.... Also on campus Wednesday night, UK-based folktronica trio Crystal Fighters hits Porters Pub behind their first full-length, Star of Love.... While ’round town, the German songsmith, Queensrÿche’s Geoff Tate’ll play Anthology...and Chicago math-pop four-piece Maps & Atlases lead the way to Casbah behind this year’s Barsuk offering, Beware and Be Grapefruit.
