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.
