When: Sat., Jan. 9, 9:30 p.m. 2016

Late last February, Ruscha issued its 2015 EP, a six-song romp in which three guitarists simultaneously plow and pirouette, riff and rip around the hyperkinetic motion of the only member not wielding strings—yes, a drummer. Those instrumental browbeaters still delight with a willfully esoteric take on classic metal: That is, queue up the memories of Maiden, Sabbath and maybe even Helmet. Remove everything but the basics. And riff as though there’s never been anything else to do. Tonight, 2015 EP finally gets a physical release, and rest assured that the fun of these tunes has yet to fade. —Grayson Haver Currin
