Russian Circles is one of the heaviest instrumental acts you’ll find, traversing a flowing line between calm ambient rock and thundering metal riffs, while avoiding the too-lengthy-song trap that consumes post-rock. Instead it rips your face off, no bath salts included. They return to Louisville in support of Empros, their fourth full-length and most dynamic yet. Joining them is Chelsea Wolfe, a lo-fi singer-songwriter affair covered up in a goth veneer. The ethereal floating rock of Marriages rounds out the mix, made up of three members of post-rock collective Red Sparrows. If you’re looking to experience an eclectic mix of engaging music, come and enjoy what will be an aural fandango feast. —Austin Weber
