[PSYCH ROCK] + SAT., DEC. 9

Louisville band Wax Fang started out solidly in the world of indie rock. But on its last few releases, the group started working in more psychedelic and electronic sounds, producing tracks filled with its traditional lively guitar riffs, plus some dreamy synth beats. In October, Wax Fang released its latest single, “Glass Island” — an eight-minute track that starts off with minimalist electronic beats and smoky vocals, before breaking into a full rock jam halfway through. It might help to imagine Spoon mixing with eerie ’80s dance music. Or, you could just hear it for yourself when the band plays Brillobox, along with the Pittsburgh punk group Fangs of the Panda, recently resurrected after its initial run in the early aughts.
