Wed, Oct 7, Lightning Dust
Luigi’s Fun Garden, 8 p.m., call for cover
For those familiar with the other project by Canadian rockers Amber Webber and Joshua Wells, known as Black Mountain, the amount of maturity shown in their second album, Infinite Light, shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Although the side project Lightning Dust is softer than the harder-edged sound that is Black Mountain, they explore ways of expressing ferocity and energy without all the noise, particularly with the opening song “Antonia Jane.” Webber’s frighteningly sultry and seductive vocals make even the most vengeful of lyrical content sound endearing and uplifting. 1050 20th Street, (916) 552-0317, www.myspace.com/lightningdust.
