Metal Legends: ABSU (ROCK/MISC) at the Palace Lounge

Description: Texas black metal outfit Absu — whose new press copy totes them as a “mythological occult trio” (I love it) — don’t tour very often. The last time they toured America was in 2013, except for a few festival and spot dates since. Absu is a metal band from Texas. They started out as death Metal and in a genre-obsessed world, they may be something different now. It’s alright, it’s still super gnarly and stil rips. Vets of Maryland Deathfest countless tours, etc. this is their first Missoula, Montana appearance. Local ripping provided by Judgment Hammer, Shramana, and Zebulon Kosted.

Shakewell (FUNK) at the Top Hat Lounge

Description: 
Can you feel the rumbling from the Rockies? No, it’s not the Yellowstone Supervolcano, but it has the amplitude to make bodies shake and dance floors quake. Shakewell is tearing down venues with tectonic dance grooves radiating from their epicenter in Missoula, Montana. A funk brotherhood of lifelong friends and collaborators, Shakewell thumps out funk, neo-soul, and rock’n’roll. The resulting 5-piece release will toss you around with original songs and imaginative mashups, cranking the Richter scale up to 11. Keep eyes on the seismograph and ears to the ground, ’cause Shakewell is comin’ to throw down in your town!
