Ecstatic Vision Opening for Creepoid at Underground Arts Oct. 23

If the idea of heart-pounding, trance-inducing, raucous rock that temporarily encases listeners in an alternative sonic dimension is the remedy you’ve been looking for, Ecstatic Vision is serving it up at Underground Arts tonight. The band recently signed to Relapse Records, and has plans for releasing its debut early next year. With extended, heavy vibes filled with sweaty fuzzed guitars, relentless backend and scorcher-inspired vocals, be prepared to be sucked in. However, you’ll want to be at UA all night anyway with a lineup that includes the soothing cosmic navigation of neo-psych outfit Drone Ranger, whom are consistently changing speeds as they traverse farther out. Then, there’s Ruby The Hatchet, whose rough-edge 70’s hard rock sound, isn’t so much a throw back but rather a timeless tradition with its interlocked thick, rolling groove and guitar lines that take that step ahead, letting the flames emerge bigger, all while Jillian Taylor’s vocals provide a calming fervor. All this will set the stage for the earthy noise-rock of Creepoid that seeps into your pores and finds a home there. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Eliminator" - Ruby The Hatchet

Below is a new seductive nine-minute-plus rocker called "Eliminator" from stoner metal outfit Ruby The Hatchet. The track can be found on the band's latest EP The Eliminator, which will also be available on limited-edition vinyl and casstte. Ruby The Hatchet will be down in Austin this week in support of the new release. Enjoy!


Ruby The Hatchet Opening for Naam & Radkey at KFN Aug. 17

Psyched out metal and punk collide at Kung Fu Necktie during an early show tonight as Brooklyn heavy psych rockers Naam and Missouri punk rockers Radkey bring the noise. And twisted stoner alt rockers Ruby The Hatchet will be in their element when they usher in the evening’s festivities. The riff heavy guitar shredding of John Scarperia and the sleek Valkyrie calls of singer Jillian Taylor combine for a mix that is equal parts sexy and sadistic. And ever since releasing OUROBOROS at the start of the year, they have been tearing through a barrage of pulse pounding shows just like this one. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 6pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill


The Bailey Hounds Record Release Show w/Tin Horses & Ruby The Hatchet at JB’s July 13

Johnny Brenda’s hosts the record release show of the haunting folk-blues outfit The Bailey Hounds for their latest EP All the Blood in the World. Ryan Petrillo’s troubled stirring vocals can send a chill up your spine even in the dead heat of summer. With the trademark alt-country twang and songs that have a confessional grit, The Bailey Hounds take a cue from age-old folk storytelling and infuse a drafty lurking-ghost-around-every-corner feel. Tin Horses will also be performing tonight at JB’s. Led by Kiel Everett, the bassist for Purling Hiss, the band brings a dingy grunge-inspired take on Americana adorned blues. There’s a worn and weathered aesthetic to Tin Horses with a purposely unfiltered, dirt-under-the-nails approach to songwriting. Everett’s straight semi-spoken vocals are met with guitars that take fiery aggressive runs; these runs aren’t of the smooth airy variety. Rather, they serve in an aching and screaming release, laying down a burden. The heavy 70’s rock-inspired, female-fronted Ruby The Hatchet open the evening prepared to bring a no-bones-about-it intensity to the stage.  As heavy bass lines clear the path for raunchy fuzzed-out guitar fires and vocals providing clairvoyant power that is equal to the task. This evening is a fine example that tried and true rock n roll is still alive and kicking. Don’t be late. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
