Blues Control - Saturday, Mar. 9 @ Blank Space

Saturday (Mar. 9):

Blues Control w/ Eric Hall, Ou Ou @ Blank Space 8 p.m. | $5 In Drag City's Blues Control, the duo of Lea Cho and Russ Waterhouse construct impressive sonic landscapes with keys, guitar and a pile of wires and knobs. Watch them paint with sound along with a couple of St. Louis' finest electronics-based artists. (MS)

Juke Ellington w/ Moniker, iRell, 18andCounting @ The Demo 10 p.m. | $6-$8 All the way from Belgium, (not Chicago, birthplace of the juke/footwork sound), Juke Ellington's music would fit right in with that of our neighboring Windy City. Also, hi Tictic Bump! See, I'm listening. (DH)

Master w/ Sacrificial Slaughter, Fisthammer, Bastard, Hemmorhaging Elysium @ Fubar 8 p.m. | $12-$15 Chicago's Master have been masterfully (GET IT?!? OH SHIT) playing death metal since 1983, having worked with well-known labels like Nuclear Blast and Combat Records in the early days. This show announced like eight months ago or something, by the way -- "much anticipated," as they say. (DH)

Unknown Mortal Orchestra w/ Foxygen, Wampire @ The Firebird 8:30 p.m. | $12 Lo-fi indie sounds abound from this this trio based out of Portland and New Zealand. The distance between them generates some sort of a psychedelic fuzz, and it's apparent in the jangly feel-good songwriting. (MS)

Sunday (Mar. 10):

Clutch w/ Orange Goblin, Lionize, Kyng @ Pop's Nightclub 6:30 p.m. | $20-$26 Nine albums and over twenty years in, Clutch still plays hard-hitting, aggressive rock. The band's newest album, Earth Rocker is due to be released on March 19, so expect to hear some new jams at the show. (DH)

The Aggrolites w/ The Pinstripes, Unifyah @ Old Rock House 8 p.m. | $15 The Aggrolites hail from Los Angeles and have played buoyant reggae beats since 2002. Watch 'em go bananas on Yo Gabba Gabba. (MS)
