Systems, Cowboy Crisis, Alpha Cop 

When: Wed., Oct. 30, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Led in part by INDY freelancer Corbie Hill, Alpha Cop is nothing if not ambitious. This year's I'm Going Down With This Ship and Others includes a 15-minute post-rock salvo packed with saxophone, violin and sounds mined from an iPhone. Sweeping guitars and explosive crescendos go along with those far-flung tools. Systems are more aggressive, retooling enormous shoegaze textures, like steam rising from tectonic shifts. The results are powerful and challenging, but the band never sacrifices melody in its search for heaviness. With Cowboy Crisis. —Jordan Lawrence
