Tonight! The Low Anthem, Monotonix, And Blackbells


The Low Anthem’s American folk and roots music does exude “hymnal purity,” (well put, Uncut Magazine), but don’t worry about being lulled to sleep, as the quartet (to your left) will dynamically shuffle around zithers, pump organs, and clarinets within a single set at the Bowery Ballroom. Or, test your sanity at Brooklyn Bowl, where Monotonix, the Israeli trio known for their maxed-out raucousness (hence banishment from most Tel Aviv venues) provoke shell shock-like delirium with their anarchic rock ‘n’ roll. (Hopefully there are no hospitalizations.) Elsewhere, attempt to revive the glory days of Britpoppers Oasis and Blur at the Mercury Lounge with Brooklyn quartet Blackbells, who’ve adopted the subgenre’s characteristic soaring vocals, wall of sound, and jousting guitars.
