Eight Gigs: Arabrot
Wed., July 8, 7:30 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $10
If any experimental band named after a garbage dump deserves your attention, Norway's Arabrot certainly fits the bill. After 14 years, the band has released a handful of EP and full-length albums. It recently released yet another EP titled You Bunch of Idiots EP—in conjunction with Fysisk Format and Eolian Records. Fans of Melvins, Shellac, early Swans and even the Birthday Party will enjoy the music found in Ababrot's gloriously awkward catalog. If you're new to the band, check out its self-titled release from 2013 and view the breathtaking video fort “Ha-Satan Dêofol” which redefines the experimental metal world. Also on this bill are Dispirit, Lycus and Ghold. 1517 21st Street, www.arabrot.com/imodi.
