VAST 

7 p.m. Monday, April 9. Creepy Crawl (3524 Washington Boulevard).

VAST (a.k.a. the name under which musician Jon Crosby records) stands for Visual Audio Sensory Theater — and Crosby makes music that's appropriately epic for the moniker. While a combination of art-rock industrial beats and gothic classical strings is his trademark, a heavy global influence keeps Crosby's albums interesting; specifically, tribal beats add an extra layer of danger and impending doom to songs that could accompany the creepy vampire change-over scene in a Lost Boys remake. To break it down further, VAST mostly sounds like Failure's Ken Andrews singing a Pretty Hate Machine song for the Lion King soundtrack. In concert expect building, pressure-filled, atmospheric soundscapes low on humor and heavy on Bauhaus.
