Eight Gigs: Xasthur
Thu., Dec. 15, Starlite Lounge, $10
Scott Conner came screaming out of the abyss with his first couple of releases. Unlike other like-minded one-man acts such as Leviathan and even Striborg, Conner offered an alternate take for those suffering from depression. His brash recordings seemingly glorified death and gave one the feeling they were were being dragged to another fiery dimension. As expected, this is a rare acoustic show where, in keeping with the weather forecast, some very ill winds will blow.
