When Melvins Lite recently rolled into town, it would have been apropos for King Buzzo and Dale Crover to have tabbed local cataclysmic, slow-death trio the Gate, as their opening act. Earlier this year, the avant-doom outfit (led by tuba skronkmaster Dan Peck) unleashed the wicked epic Destruction of Darkness and needless to say, it killed. Expect to be pushed as close as possible this evening. With Nate Wooley Quintet Omega (11/27) and Nate Wooley Quintet Alpha/Omega (11/28).
Tue., Nov. 27, 8 p.m.; Wed., Nov. 28, 8 p.m., 2012
