The Soft Moon, Majical Cloudz, Prisms 

When: Thu., Jan. 17, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12

The music of San Francisco's The Soft Moon is a dizzying darkness. Distant drum machines and consistent quakes of noise unite within tunes that dance in spite of, or because of, the doom they espouse. On record, that despair is amplified by Luis Vasquez's insistence on performing and recording these songs solo; live, a band adds force to that agitation, growling and purring like Suicide missionaries. Montreal pair Majical Cloudz has earned as much attention for its Grimes associations as its own work, but the deliberate song structures and cascading harmonies do have the capacity to woo. —Grayson Currin
