Russian Circles

8 p.m. Tuesday, August 7. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

Chicago's Russian Circles plays sprawling instrumental rock that incorporates the full spectrum between intense heavy-metal passages and soft, delicate instances of quiet melody, creating an enthralling musical monster that expertly explores the dynamics of each. The three-piece has been creating buzz in its hometown since assembling out of the remains of Dakota/Dakota, which was also an instrumental act, in late 2004. Early tours saw the band opening for bands such as Isis, Minus the Bear, Daughters, Pelican and even a European jaunt opening for Tool, but lately the band has been headlining its tours, having proven itself a formidable act.

Crom Is Strong: Drummer Dave Turncrantz formerly played for now-defunct St. Louis rock band Riddle of Steel. Show the man some much-deserved hometown love.
