Local sludgonauts Elks are a gunk-caked rumble in the Cape Canaveral parking lot: the orc-stomping gallop of High On Fire, the sky-fucking twin-leads of Iron Maiden, and an asphalt-scraping guitar tone straight from Brooklyns puke-drowned gutters. Tonight is the release party for their long-awaited debut EP, Destined For The Sun (courtesy Tee Pee Records, natch), a 22-minute concept piece about space Vikings who turn to cannibalism and have to rebuild society. Smoke em if you got em.
