FRIDAY, MAY 22

In a world of file transfers and streaming media, instant accessibility and Periscoped events, it can be convenient to forget that geographical divides still matter. For instance, Italian trio Ufomammut have been delighting stateside audiences for more than a decade with imported transmissions of high-volume and ultra-tumescent psychedelic stoner rock, where the riffs and rhythms hit with leaden weight even as the songs aim skyward. They've even released their last three albums, including this year's excellent Ecate, through Neurot Recordings, the outpost of American doom legends Neurosis. But before last week, they'd never launched a full-scale North American tour, despite short overseas stints and a growing international fanbase. Their Raleigh stop comes just after an appearance at Maryland Deathfest, a chief impetus for the trip. Promising but prolix Portland doom squad Usnea joins, as does Chapel Hill's Make, now finishing a second album. A loud, righteous and rare night. 9 p.m., $12–$14, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, www.kingsbarcade.com. —Grayson Haver Currin

Price: $12-$14
