White Mice, Suffering Bastards, Cheezface, Ex-Monkeys

When: Mon., April 12, 9:30 p.m. 2010

There's really no tender way to put this: Tonight's four-band bill is going to break your frame. While openers ExMonkeys make elegant, sometimes triumphant electronic anthems, the rest of the night offers total destruction, from gnarly noise-rock blitzes to grunting grindcore. Headlining Providence, R.I., trio White Mice dress like rodent doctors gone mad, and the music they make—rock gone wild on heavy metal, noise and guttural distortion, thanks to a system of oscillators and no-limits loudness—might make you hope for a hospital. Suffering Bastards' heavy metal is thicker and slower than your average grindcore, affording it a certain beastliness. Durham's Cheezface makes noise for dancing—spastic, crazyface dancing. Also, Big Nuss. —Grayson Currin
