Kenoma is an enigma to me, but I plan to find out more about the glacial doom destroyers tonight when they play Circus, 1227 N. High St., with Translation Loss Records mates City of Ships, Battlefields and heavy metal brethren Raise the Red Lantern. Cover is $8; show starts around 10 p.m.

EDIT: Irony of ironies. Mere days before I decided to check them out, Kenoma has gone on hiatus. In the meantime, two members have formed a new act called Before the Eyewall that will perform tonight in Kenoma's stead. They'll likely play first. The rest of the bill remains unchanged.
