Blag'ard, Poison Arrows

When: Mon., Aug. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2010

At one moment, Chicago's Poison Arrows guide us through a tangled jungle of intricate guitar and bass interplay, punctuated by precise, colored drumming, all things you'd expect from former members of Don Caballero (bassist Patrick Morris) and Atombombpocketknife (guitarist Justin Sinkovich). But elsewhere, as with "Popular Look," the trio hints at Faint-like electro, casting gloomy shadows from sparse synths and loops. Two-piece powerhouse Blag'ard kick-starts the show at 9:30 p.m. with a buzzing, crackling '90s guitar-led vigor jutting at crooked angles like Polvo's, and slogging distorted riffs like Mudhoney's. —Bryan Reed
