Austra come to Brooklyn

Devoted goth heads are sure to be planning their weekend around Saturday’s Beacon Theatre concert by the Finnish metal band Nightwish. But lovers of spooky sonics should consider a mid-week rendezvous tonight with Toronto’s Austra, who conjure an equally creepy atmosphere without the help of big, bloodthirsty guitars; last year’s Feel It Break often limits the synth-based 
arrangements around singer Katie Stelmanis to a “Beat and the Pulse,” as one song title puts it. Stelmanis and her mates (including twin-sister backing vocalists Sari and Romy Lightman) play the MHOW ahead of an 
appearance at this month’s POP Montreal festival.
