Trap Them

A couple different takes on dark and despairing music for this lovely August Wednesday:

Looking for something heavy tonight? Trap Them is at Ravari Room, 2657 N. High St., with Bastards (review here) and Earthburner. 9 p.m. doors, $8 cover.

The more experimental among you might appreciate Circuit des Yeux's free show at Carabar, 115 Parsons Ave. The Indiana outsider, "a beautifully confusing blossom from the same void that birthed Jandek, Jim Shepard, Adris Hoyos et al," will take the stage with the reclusive Fey Gods and an unusually guitar-centric performance from the NPR- and Pitchfork-acclaimed Mike Shiflet. 9 p.m. doors on this one.
