Concert preview: Oneida makes its first Columbus visit in nearly 15 years

From the July 24, 2014 edition

According to the show’s organizers, this will be the experimental Brooklyn crew’s first Columbus concert in nearly 15 years, meaning any babies conceived the night of its last show are already driving on learner’s permits.

This isn’t to suggest the band’s music is conducive to seduction. Instead, the sounds populating noise-rock albums like A List of the Burning Mountains tend to be more avant-garde, combining metallic grinding, corroded guitars and poisonous atmospheric passages that drift through like the titular clouds in John Carpenter’s “The Fog.”

Cheater Slicks, Hyrrokinn and Rock ’n’ Roll James also perform.
