Shipwreck / Ghost in Light

10:30 p.m. Thursday, April 5. Mangia Italiano (3145 South Grand Boulevard).

It's always nice when a band's name exactly describes its music. Case in point: The Champaign, Illinois, quartet Shipwreck crafts moody tunes that conjure choppy seas, slate-gray skies and lost-at-sea desolation — mostly by employing rumbling minor chords and droll, dark vocals reminiscent of Nick Cave. 2005's Origin and two recent EPs should appeal to fans of the Life and Times' viscous post-rock, Failure's ghostly echoes and Wire's early records. Post-everything rockers Ghost in Light return to the live scene after a few months off to regroup; the band is now playing as a trio, sans vocalist Jason House.
