Wax Idols, TV Ghost, Fleshwounds

When: Sat., April 27, 10 p.m. 2013

Discipline and Desire, the second album from Oakland, Calif., band Wax Idols, takes a dark, moody turn after the relative rollick of their debut, 2011's No Future. The band's new goth-gaze approach is a good look: Hooks emerge from sheets of shoegazer guitar and Joy Division thrum. Still, they'll have a hard time following their opener, the paranoiac post-punk outfit TV Ghost. The Indiana act's mutated surf guitar, Suicide-like throb and spookhouse-synth accents place a sharp-cornered labyrinth around manic frontman Tim Gick. He stalks the stage like a reanimated Lux Interior. Flesh Wounds open.—Bryan C. Reed
