Boris, Clouds, and Zebulon Pike at the Triple Rock


The latest experimental rock act to become deservedly aggrandized by Trent Reznor's visionary tour plans, the Tokyo-based protean three piece Boris is hot off the Target Center stage, where they wowed a capacity crowd on Tuesday night in an opening slot for Nine Inch Nails. 

Their music is a chord based drone that makes even the sturdiest gut tremble. Their bass tones are asphyxiating, and their stacks of vintage Orange amps are more than enough to galvanize the Triple Rock crowd that will surely turn out en mass for an evening of sonic-self abuse.

Their songs are among the heaviest and most oppressive on the musical Periodic Table, and their fans are highly encouraged to turn out early to see local heroes Zebulon Pike open the show. Proving that "proggy" is no purjorative, their lengthy opuses are hypnotic and woozy executions of guitar wizardry. Not to be missed.

Friday November 29. Triple Rock Social Club. 21+. 9:00 P.M. $13.00 advance/ $15.00
