Giant Squid at the Evening Muse Tonight (5/24/2012)
GIANT SQUID Leave it to a band that's resided in forward-thinking havens like Sacramento and Austin to come up with "progressive, doomy, aquatic metal" and actually make it sound good. Favoring cello, trumpet and ethereal female vocals alongside metal's traditional chugging guitar and demon roars, Giant Squid's often marine-themed compositions have won the band enthusiastic critical acclaim and fans both in and outside the metal community worldwide. $6. Evening Muse.
