Boris, Asobi Seksu, True Widow 

When: Sun., Oct. 30, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $15

During the last 15 years, the impossibly versatile Japanese trio Boris has done a little or a lot of it all—damaged album-length drones, thickened thrash bursts, relentless stoner rock, steely electro-pop and a true-to-form collaboration with The Cult's Ian Astbury. Indeed, in the last two years they've squarely crossed the broad boundary between pan-metal act into an ultra-varied hard rock band. This obsession with inclusion has made for a few pretty dismal Boris albums that seem more focused on proclaiming the band's abilities than kicking out the jams. Live, though, they reach across a very wide catalog, piecing pristine performances into an ably executed metabolic mixtape. Asobi Seksu and True Widow both explore the late '80s' ghosts—the former with shoegaze-oriented pop, the latter with fist-to-face grunge. —Grayson Currin
