Tom Blacklung & the Smokestacks 

When: Mon., Jan. 14, 10 p.m. 2013
Price: Free

The name of this Brooklyn trio might suggest y'allternative with a dollop of dourness, but Tom Blacklung & the Smokestacks have more to do with the back catalog of Touch & Go than back issues of No Depression. Like a horde of Shellac lovers suddenly discovering the kindred frenzy of Primus, these dudes shout about bad times above guitars that are angular, bass that is muscular and drums that intend to give you a deep bruise. —Grayson Currin
