Akkolyte, Aaron and Stefan Gonzalez's grindcore duo (the two also perform with their father, Dennis, in experimental jazz project Yells At Eels), offers up a live show that's about as fun as grindcore can get (it helps that it's about as loud as any musical duo can get, too), and tonight's gig at the Double-Wide should only be more entertaining: The brothers are planning to record pieces of tonight's gig for potential release.

"We will be recording various improvs, a sing-along, and whatever madness we can coerce out of the audience," writes Aaron Gonzalez.

The sing-along, no doubt, will pair with the group's "Pharmacopocalypse" track, in which the brothers playfully sing in about a "massive celebration at the end of the world" in a schoolyard tone.

Anyway, it should be a good time. If you've ever dreamed about showing up on a local grindcore act's recorded output, but you just don't have the musical chops to pull it off, well, your prayers have finally been answered, bub. --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
