Chicago's OYARSA list their influences as "Space. Destruction. Infinity. Doom. Beer." Melding black metal, sludgy doom and stoner grooves, we're stoked to finally have these Bottle favorites headline a show here. If past shows are any indication, OYARSA's skull-crushing riffs and pummeling percussion are sure to flatten all who stand before them. Lafayette, LA's RED SHIELD embraces the darkest, blackest, most emotionally driven tones in their attempt to create an aural black hole. Their latest EP, Disquiet Follows the Soul, swallows its listeners with trippy, screeching guitars and a devastating rhythm section - not for the faint of heart, to say the least. New Orleans-based black-doom-core duo SOLID GIANT and Chicago's own DOGS OF FORTUNE open the show with their stoner, proto-punk and metal influenced take on progressive rock.
