Acid Mothers Temple, Over-Gain Optimal Death, Clang Quartet

When: Sun., April 11, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Kawabata Makoto exudes the same feverish, ceaseless search for truth as one of filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's lone wolf samurais. Makoto leads the current Acid Mothers Temple outfit, but he's been a mainstay on the Japanese rock scene since the late '70s, in other hard-edged psych groups like Musica Transonic and Mainliner. Makoto's costume usually involves flowing all-black garb and the onstage presence of someone in a trance. Long before the playful doom rockers (a paradox, maybe?) found their music could also become transcendental, cats like Makoto were tweaking each other in Tokyo's underground, melding what they heard from heavy metal, prog rock and various mystic influences. The Temple now has direct acolytes of their own, like openers Over-Gain Optimal Death. Clang Quartet's noise for Jesus should rattle the brain wide open for the rest of the evening, starting at 9:30 p.m. Show costs $10–$12 day of show. —Chris Toenes

Price: $10-$12
