That's reason enough for excitement, but the icing on the cake is that Chicago's Russian Circles are also on the bill, adding some slow-building, heavy-riffing instrumental madness that sounds something like Godspeed You! Black Emperor or Explosions in the Sky might come up with if they played intricate rhythmic metal--and who were a highlight of my Fun Fun Fun Fest experience. Topping the bill is the poppier, less-heavy Czech duo Saade, who will probably appeal to anyone still buzzing from Lightning Bolt's Trees show earlier this month. Tickets come to just over $21 with service charges at FrontGate...
