Giant Squid

Tonight’s quadruple bill at the Comet is probably one of the most thoughtfully stacked line-ups of the year. Helms Alee continue to win new fans at every turn with their Pixies-meets-Melvins assault, while Lozen (which is fronted by Helms Alee drummer Hozi Matheson-Margullis) is an increasingly electrifying drum and guitar duo made of equal parts crystalline shrieks and thunder-footed rumble. Dog Shredder snap necks and induce smiles with their agile, aggressive math-metal, and Giant Squid were kind enough to swim up from the Bay Area for the occasion, bringing with them an artful heaviness that gains ethereal levity thanks to the alluring presence of knockout cellist Jackie Perez Gratz. With Helms Alee, Lozen, Dog Shredder. HANNAH LEVIN
