METAL BLADE YOUNG GUNS TOUR

nn

Brian Sagel supported Metallica long before they crashed, cried and regrouped. The Los Angeles native helped launch their career decades ago through his then-fledgling label, Metal Blade Records. 23 years later, Sagel’s D.I.Y. label is thriving, as are artists he supported from day one including GWAR, Cannibal Corpse and Slayer. Catch newly signed shredders The Absence, Losa, The Classic Struggle, Across the Sun and To Fall Victim before the interventions. Club Vegas, 445 W. 440 South, 9:30 p.m. Tickets: 24Tix.com.

Also Thursday: Acid Mother’s Temple, The Occasion (Egos); Jehovah Hendricksen (Hard Rock Cafe)

DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE

nn

It would be nice if Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamberello took their synth-pop show on the road, but The Postal Service will never be more than an awesome side-project'a fitting soundtrack for Civic Hybrids. Gibbard simply sinks more soul and body into Death Cab for Cutie, the group that launched a thousand Seth Cohens. DCFC began as your boyfriend’s guilty pleasure. Now he stands on rooftops crying, “So one last touch and then you’ll go/And we’ll pretend that it meant something so much more.” In the Venue, 219 S. 600 West, 6 p.m. All-ages. Tickets: 24Tix.com (with Youth Group).

KROKUS

nn

If you’re not into “talking,” “hugging,” or “wearing striped polo shirts,” skip DCFC and take in the glory of Krokus. This Swedish metal band’s triumphant return comes none too soon for fans of their over-the-top arena rock. They spent the last three decades on rising, peaking, falling, reforming with new members, rising and falling again before reassembling the original crew. With 20 albums under their belt, there’s no rush to record new material. Club Vegas, 445 W. 440 South, 8 p.m. Tickets: 24Tix.com.

nn

Also Friday: Terra Naomi (Kilby Court); Briertone (Lo-Fi Cafe); Starmy, J.W. Blackout, Pleasure Thieves (Burt’s Tiki Lounge); The Adonis, The Annuals (Todd’s Bar & Grill); The Supersuckers (Suede)

COHEED & CAMBRIA

nn

Speaking of over-the-top … Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness is quite a mouthful, but epic lines are what we’ve come to expect from Coheed & Cambria. The prog-rockers’ fourth release continues their story of two fictional characters winding through a comic-book opera. Lead vocalist/Geddy Lee impersonator Claudio Sanchez is currently putting those ideas in graphic novel form, further solidifying his reputation as a comic-book geek. If you dig Lord of the Rings, D&D and/or eight-minute guitar solos, this band’s for you. The Great Saltair, 12408 W. Saltair Drive, Magna, 7 p.m. All-ages. Tickets: 24Tix.com (with Blood Brothers and Dredg).

nn

GOV’T MULE, MOE

nn

In two days, Gov’t Mule will launch its co-headlining tour with critically acclaimed jam band, Moe. Tonight, we have them all to ourselves. This should please longtime followers of the Allman Brothers side-project, a bluesy psych-rock group thick with Southern soul. After a period of intense internal shakeups, namely the death of original bassist Allen Woody, they’ve regrouped and released another fine studio album featuring newcomers Andy Hess and Donny Louis. Suede, 1612 Ute Blvd. (Kimball Junction), Park City, 9:30 p.m. Info: 435-658-2665, SuedePC.com.

nn

Also Saturday: Brooks & Dunn, Big & Rich (Usana Amphitheater'see Music, p. 57); Ska is Dead Tour (Lo-Fi Cafe); Sister Wives (Hog Wallow); Harry “Choo Choo” Romero (Vortex)

THE ROBOT ATE ME

nn

Ryland Bouchard’s feeling warm and fuzzy. The singer-songwriter normally tears it up as The Robot Ate Me, stunning critics with his indescribable style. With Carousel Waltz, however, the Tazmanian Devil has transformed into Big Bird. Now he’s praised for being simple and straightforward, both admirable qualities in moderation. Waltz, however, is dripping with saccharine. Its message seems to be one of escapism and campfire sing-a-longs. Of course, there are plenty of listeners who, like Bouchard, seek only solace in a world plagued by literal and figurative storms. Kilby Court, 741 S. 330 West, 7:30 p.m. All-ages. Info: 320-9887, KilbyCourt.com (with The Gift Machine)

Tuesday 10/11

nn

Against Me (Lo-Fi Cafe); ZZ Top (McKay Events Center, Orem); Michael Graves Band (Burt’s Tiki Lounge); The Alkaholics (Velvet Room)

SOUTH AUSTIN JUG BAND

nn

Besides a frightful rendition of “We Three Kings,” the South Austin Jug Band has an ear for covers. Their version of “Little Wing” would make Jimi proud, not only for its technical prowess, but for its unconventional style. The neo-bluegrass-country band puts a rootsy spin on everything they touch, from ’60s rock to original tunes about mullet-wearing boys named Eddie. Urban Lounge, 241 S. 500 East, 10 p.m. Info: 746-0557

nn

Also Wednesday: Thrice, Underoath (In the Venue); Mindless Self Indulgence (Lo-Fi Cafe); Echoset (Egos)
