((Thorlock)) 

10 p.m. Sunday, July 8. Lemmons, 5800 Gravois Avenue.

Clad head-to-toe in thick black robes and unleashing an aural assault of thick, groove-laden stoner metal, Cape Girardeau's ((Thorlock)) has quickly become a local favorite among DIY rock and metal enthusiasts in St. Louis, often playing alongside Fister, the Lion's Daughter and others in the Pissfork family and releasing a seven-inch on I Hate Punk Rock Records. Citing influence from "Black Sabbath, Black Holes, Black and Milds and Jack Black," the band's wits are as sharp as its Sleep- and Melvins-influenced riffs.

((((Parentheses)))): Blame Sunn O))) for setting the stylized parenthetical precedent, or take the band's explanation for it: Those are sound waves.
