The Grasshopper Lies Heavy’s recent All Sadness, Grinning into Flow serves a master class in long droning riffs, expansive textures and the importance of badass amps.

White Christ is an OG name for a Texas punk band, though it’s easy to forget that SA is technically still within the confines of the Bible Belt. In their live set, the fourtet provides a retrospective of the Black Flag aesthetic, moving from Morris-era Flag, through the hybrid hardcore/angular jams of Damaged and towards the late-era, Rollins rants and sludge guitar of My War. Impressively, the SA crew channels the same pitch of feedback throughout their gigs, a sound quite close to the stressful drone of Alien. With Amygdala, Over the Top, Mau, Haunter, Illustrations. $5, 7pm, The Ten Eleven, 1011 Avenue B, 320-9080 —Matt Stieb
