A heads-up on one that I wasn't able to fit into print this week: Tonight (March 12) at Belvedere's, you can check out the cacophonous weirdness of Behold ... the Arctopus.
Behold ... the Arctopus has been around for some years as the duo of Mike Lerner and Colin Marston (Dysrhythmia, Krallice), who plays a Warr guitar in the band. A couple of years ago, Weasel Walter, of Flying Luttenbachers fame, joined the group.
They play tonight with locals Microwaves, who are a good fit: loud, mathematical, extreme. Also opening: No Reason to Live and Horse Drawn Death Machine.
9 p.m., $7, leave the kiddies at home. For a sample of the most recent stuff from Behold ... the Arctopus, press play:
