Sat., July 29, 8 p.m., Harlow’s Restaurant & Nightclub, $16-$18
Think of your favorite band. Imagine that riff they do, the one you love so much that the memory of it keeps you awake as you’re trying to sleep. Feeling it? Good. Now’s the time to let you know that your favorite band sucks and that Pallbearer is better. It’s a band with emotive, soaring and crushing funeral doom that’s grown into prog, psych, rock and so much more. Easy on the palate for metal neophytes and heavy enough for true heads. This band is getting big and you won’t get another chance to see them in a venue so intimate. Go. 2708 J Street, http://pallbearerdoom.com.
