After three mind-bending, jazz-fusion, art-metal, something-or-other LPs, New York's moodily demented Kayo Dot have evolved into a most curious creature: the metal band with no guitars! But thankfully, they are no less haunting than any skin-ripping chug machine; the band creates spectral, otherworldly vibes through the textures of bands like the Cure and Faith and the Muse. Tonight they premiere their new composition(!), "Stained Glass." Bring a coat, 'cause it's gonna get chilly. With Cleric and Bad Girlfriend.
