Live Tonight: Corrections House, Pearl Django With Bucky Pizzarelli

Corrections House is the collective musical extractions of Eyehategod frontman Mike IX Williams, Neurosis vocalist/guitarist Scott Kelly, Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), and Sanford Parker (Minsk). The result—some have called it a metal supergroup—is something entirely unique and unexpected. After releasing the Hoax the System/Grin With a Purpose 7-inch earlier this year, the band followed with its first full-length, Last City Zero—a monster album that weaves a certain poetic beauty within an abrasive soundscape full of devastation and destruction. Opening tonight is local band Great Falls, who recently released the pummeling metal masterpiece Accidents Grotesque, which topped my list of 2013. With Wrekmeister Harmonies. The Highline. 9 p.m. $12 adv. 21 and over. JAMES BALLINGER

Pearl Django With Bucky Pizzarelli What would already have been an evening of mind-expanding gypsy jazz received a huge upgrade with the inclusion of 87-year-old guitar legend Pizzarelli, who has been gliding up and down fretboards for seven decades now, and will surely bring some of his trademark seven-string swing to the show. Jazz Alley. Through Sunday. 7:30 & 9:30 p.m. $24.50. CORBIN REIFF
