Seriously, that’s a tough question. Must-see shows don’t come around all that often, and even less frequently on a Monday night… but by some strange, freak-of-nature coincidence, there will be two of them taking place in town tonight!
Here are the details for each of them, and then — I dunno, you can flip a coin or something:
Root of Evil Collective Presents:
False, Bellow, Egality, Wrought Iron
at the Mr. Roboto Project
5106 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh (Bloomfield)
Monday 10 September 2012 | show starts at 7:00 pm | $5 | all ages
Appearing tonight at Roboto are a pair of bands visiting our fine city from Minneapolis! Neither one (apparently) believes in using Facebook, but you can check out False‘s self-titled LP of angry black metal at the Gilead Media Bandcamp page (here) and Bellow‘s self-titled EP of atmospheric doom on their own Bandcamp page (here — download for free, or pay whatever you like!). Kicking things off will be Egality from Derry, PA, and Wrought Iron from Pittsburgh!
RSVP for this event here.
Allure of the Earth Productions presets…
at The Smiling Moose (upstairs)
1306 East Carson Street, Pittsburgh (South Side)
Monday 10 September 2012 | 9:00 pm | $10 | 21+ only
Chicagoan black/doom metal band The Atlas Moth‘s An Ache for the Distance (Profound Lore Records) made countless year-end best-of lists in 2011. You can listen to the album here, then you can hear the band tonight at the Moose! Featuring the much-hyped local hard rock supergroup Supervoid as well as the Burgh’s prog-metal darlings Falling Upward.
PS: The poster shown here is an old image; the date was changed since then, so disregard where it says “Sunday” — honestly, the show is tonight (Monday)!
