Dark Meat: Tonight with Monotonix, Tomorrow at Union Pool

One of the most claustrophobic spaces in New York gets downright harrowing. First up, Dark Meat, a multi-headed psych-rock mutant that’s a cross between tent revival and bad acid trip, a big and brassy 17-member typhoon lighting up a venue that holds, like, 100 people. No less daunting are Israeli dirt-punx Monotonix, who rant and wail like Extreme Blues Explosion, assaulting audiences with flaming drums, arcing ropes of beer, and loads of too-close-for-comfort sweating. — CHRISTOPHER WEINGARTEN

Union Hall, 702 Union St., Park Slope. Tomorrow: Dark Meat will be at at Union Pool. Both bands play together again at the Cake Shop on April 20.

P.S. We hear tonight’s thing will be over by “around 10:45.” Skip dinner and go out early!
