Moon Tooth might be one of the most important up-and-coming metal acts of this generation. Combining heavy grooves with vocals reminiscent of 90s alternative bands like, dare I say The Spin Doctors and Gin Blossoms, Long Island’s Moon Tooth have a sound unlike any I’ve encountered in the endless realms of metal’s ever expanding universe. It’s a return to the grooviness of nu-metal minus the corniness that the genre eventually evolved into. The guitars and drums dance back and forth in weird polyrhythms making for a weird blend of smart, sometimes thrash, groovy ass metal that absolutely should be listened to. With Husbandry, $12, 7pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E Houston St., alamocitymusichall.com.


Ministry

In the first of hopefully many shows to catch in SA from the tragic cancellation of Sound On Sound Fest, The Aztec Theatre has swooped up headlining industrial metal act Ministry. That’s right – good 'ol Al Jourgensen (who’s now 59) and the boys are headed to the Alamo City to deliver their grinding industrial tracks to a city that’s been pretty supportive of the group since their rise to fame in the mid-’80s and early-’90s. And even with the continued lineup changes, death of guitarist Mike Scaccia, and Jourgensen's battle with drug addiction (he’s been sober since checking into rehab earlier this year), Ministry is one of the few bands from industrial early-'90s peak that has continued to stay relevant. $29-$98, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary's St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
