When: Thu., April 21 2016



Brooklyn's Magrudergrind attacks the intersection of heavy metal and hardcore punk with a sense of devil-may-care abandon. They drop hip-hop samples into the spaces between tracks and zipline from blast beats to viscous, stoner-style breakdowns without warning, as though on a mission to make order of an attention deficit. But on the new II, the band's proudly hostile first record in seven years, all of that restlessness feels focused into one sharp point—less a hodgepodge than a concentrated attack. Above the orchestrated melee, Avi Kulawy rants and raves about generational hypocrisy and technological obsequy, self-destructive behavior and big-picture resistance. In the close quarters of Local 506, the set should sound like a sermon, feel like a riot. Yautja, whose menacing music suggests grindcore and doom metal bands swapping members, opens, alongside Torch Runner and Lesser Life. —Grayson Haver Currin
