Pontiak

9 p.m. Friday, December 19. The Wedge, 442 Bates Avenue.

Pontiak's music is a drop-tuned, trudging march that inevitably conjures Black Sabbath's evil dirges, the thick-as-molasses guitar sludge of Kyuss and the sprawling psychedelic hypnosis of the Black Angels. But the three brothers in this Virginia trio add melodic gang vocals and harmonies to its swaying drone, which keeps its latest full-length, Sun on Sun, constantly moving forward. Tactful track-sequencing and a bare-bones recording style give the record the feeling of a well-executed live set.
