Dark Dark Dark, Emily Wells 

When: Tue., Oct. 16, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10

In the context of modern independent music, the terms "folk" and "metal" have become umbrella terms that embrace more space every the year. Consider Minneapolis' Dark Dark Dark: The band's new one, Who Needs Who, continues in the same expansive folk vein the band has inhabited since 2006. The title track opens in piano-driven ballad form—comfortable space for the band—but suddenly takes an unexpected Klezmer-esque direction about halfway in. "Last Time I Saw Joe" has an Eastern European cabaret feel, while "Hear Me" patiently builds through delayed guitar and minimal drums to a Tori Amos-style vocal crescendo. Emily Wells opens. —Corbie Hill
