Blue Sky Black Death, Sister Crayon 

When: Sun., Oct. 20, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12
West Coast production pair Blue Sky Black Death have been mixing the stately saturation of shoegaze and the gloomy stare of doom metal with the concussive thuds of Southern hip-hop for the better part of a decade. Strangely, collaborators Kingston and Young God did not get sucked into the recent witchhouse craze, an omission that's allowed them to avoid stifling assumptions. Instead, they still have free range with the far-flung sides of their sound. To wit, at the start of October, they released Glaciers, a five-song, hour-long album that wends between choral vocals and trunk-of-subs rattle. Seductive and sinister, this is pop-music gloss repurposed for prog-rock grandiosity. The day after offering Glaciers, they issued "Keys," a lascivious collaboration with Gucci Mane. The bass lurks at the horizon of hell, while the lyrics aim excitedly for the gutter. Sacramento duo Sister Crayon, whose knotty and pensive pieces dip into trip-hop and dubstep, opens. —Grayson Currin
