Clawform, Janzig

When: Sat., Oct. 30, 10 p.m. 2010

Here we have heavy metal played by a dude with a banjo, and it works? Yes, actually. Colin Booy's banjo blasts through a stack of amps, while thunderous metal percussion and frigid organ come from a laptop, lending Clawform black metal austerity with death metal intensity. As for the banjo itself, the instrument's percussive qualities and short sustain work well in heavy forms. So even if this one-man band is another extension of Durham's weird folk undercurrent, Clawform's music stands independently of the spectacle. This will be the first show for fellow Durhamites Janzig, an all-female Danzig tribute. Also, Corpse War. —Corbie Hill
