Skull Defekts, In the Year of the Pig, Zomes 

When: Sat., April 9, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $8

Swedish quartet Skull Defekts have made taut post-punk and challenging noise rock for half a decade, but by enlisting former Lungfish singer Daniel Higgs to front their new album, Peer Amid, they've leapt a few levels. With Higgs howling and ranting over the band's sharpest, most insistent songs, perennials like The Ex and The Fall meet a new challenger to their thrones. The competition is a fun sort, too—there's an instant catharsis to Peer Amid that's summed in Higgs album-closing chant of "Join the true/ Easy to do." In a bonus for Lungfish fans, Higgs' former bandmate Asa Osborne opens with his hypnotic organ-and-beats project, Zomes. $8/ 10 p.m. —Marc Masters
